I was walking past the Comet Tavern on Sunday when I noticed this precariously positioned gentleman painting a mural on the side of the wall. I walk past it often, yet I honestly can't remember what was there before, though I can make out the silhouette of a cow through the paint. As the mural says, the Comet was established in 1945, so I'd imagine that wall's been through some changes (last time I visited, Chris Estey was interviewing David Yow and Eugene Robinson).

Finished mural and detail below.

When I passed by three days later, it was finished (and the Comet was having a free show). The artist had added a second fish, a splash, and the word "best."
