Reminds me of the Death Ride graphics. And of course, the Grateful Dead. Historical trivia, my high school classmate Len DellíAmico became the Deadís vidoegrapher, creating videos where they all turned into skeletons while playing, etc.

Hope this link works, here is a cool graphic from a recent race in LA (Lewiston-Auburn, Maine):

We saw some cool wall art in SF in May. Nothing on that scale, but cool none the less.

The Duboce Bikeway Mural was one of our 'mural day' treking views.

Here's a trompe l'oeil wall that we photographed in Valence a few years ago, while riding down the Rhone. The wooden shutters at top and bottom are real, the windows and tree are just paint:
