Walking Northeast down Lytton Avenue in Palo Alto you’ll come across an image of an alien crashing their spaceship into the side of the Comerica Bank building. The painting, “Poor Parking Skills”, is part of a series of trompe-l’oeil murals painted by Greg Brown in 1976.

Jim Leftwich created a walking tour of the murals if you want to check them all out.

UPDATE: Here’s Greg’s mural of a “Polar Bear on Crutch Consulting With Doctor” located in the Standford Shopping Center.
