Hi, How Are You Mural


Created by songwriter and artist Daniel Johnston, this iconic bug-eyed frog greets passersby near the University of Texas. Also known as Jeremiah the Innocent, the mural covers the south wall of a Thai restaurant known as Thai, How Are You – which changed its name from the less pun-tastic Thai Spice.
