“Jeremiah the Innocent” is the name creator Daniel Johnston gave to the subject of the fanciful wall mural at 21st & Guadalupe in Austin.
Probably everyone who lives in Austin and many visitors to the University of Texas have had the experience of driving in nerve-wracking traffic, then seeing Jeremiah, and breaking into a smile.
I’m using the image in a transfer on the side of a polymer clay birdhouse, the project for my Spring Lifetime Learning Institute class.
The theme of the birdhouse is Austin or Texas. Because one or more class participants may not live in Austin, I’ll offer alternative images.
