Monday Mural: Oakland's very own

This mural is hot off the presses, so to speak, and was made by Hector "Hex" Rios, a street artist with roots in LA.  It's gone up in the last week or so, which means a lot of the work was done during successive days of rain.  The composition highlights famous people associated with Oakland.  Perfect for a business called Oakland's Very Own.  Can you identify them all?

    1. Yep. Attended a local high school where he first got bitten by the acting bug.

  4. I'm not good at recognizing folks but I think this is a lovely mural and tribute.

  5. It's a good one - I recognize most of them but not them all!

  6. The basketball player made me think of reading in the news this morning that Meadowlark Lemon (Harlem Globetrotters) passed away this weekend. Glad I got to watch him play. Funny and great at the same time.

  7. That's a great mural. I can identify 4 of the 6, but not sure of 2 of them. Have a Happy New Year!
