This was our first mural involvement, by @herakut. It was a pleasure to meet both Hera (@hera_herakut) and Akut (@akut_herakut). This post is for posterity. The mural was done in 2012 and now with our old store location on Market St in SF gone, taggers hit it last week. And in the coming months it will be obscured by new walls. To see it, go to the corner of McCoppin and Stevenson off Valencia. For more info about this awesome mural, see our blog post http://flaxart.com/flax-canvas/herakut-mural/.
