Austin, TX — In 1993, the Sound Exchange record store in Austin, Texas commissioned Daniel Johnston to paint a mural of the Hi, How Are You? frog (also known as “Jeremiah the Innocent”) from his 1983 album cover.
It has been America’s most famous pieces of street art and it’s keeping Austin weird.
Johnston has been diagnosed with schizophrenia. He has been regarded as an important figure in outsider, lo-fi and alternative music scenes.
