Elliott Smith "Figure 8" Mural Restored On His Birthday

On August 6th, on what would have been Elliott Smith's 42nd birthday, an artist took to restoring the iconic Silver Lake mural which appears on the cover of Elliott's 2000 album Figure 8.

The mural has become a popular place for fans to leave memorial tributes and messages to the deceased artist. It's also seen its share of general vandalism and tagging over time, so a restoration was needed. A previous restoration took place in 1998, but it did not include a stencil of Elliott himself.

Here's the wall before:
And here, after:

Elliott Smith - "In The Lost And Found (Honky Bach)"
