WEST SEATTLE ART: Desmond Hansen’s newest box mural

Thanks to Brandy for sending the photo! That’s West Seattle muralist Desmond Hansen, working today on his newest signal-box portrait. It’s on the southwest corner of 35th and Trenton, and in case you don’t recognize the subject, we noticed in passing that the north side of the box now identifies him – Portland drummer Joe Plummer, known for his work with bands including Modest Mouse. (Added – commenter points out Plummer has Portland roots but calls West Seattle home!)

      Thank you; didn’t know that! The background I looked up didn’t even mention Seattle. One more on the West Seattle rock-star list.

    I noticed it straightaway this AM, it’s an amazing piece, it fairly glows.  Is it possible his talents even keep growing?!
