You can see East Austin's longest-living resident, 111-year-old Richard Overton, anytime you want if you know where to look.

There's a mural on 12th and Chicon Street that depicts various legends in the music and art industry, Prince, Biggie Smalls, Salvador Dali and Selena, alongside local Austin influencers like the oldest living World War II veteran.

In fact, Mr. Overton's friend of more than 40 years, Martin Wilford, drove him by the mural so that he could see his place on it.

Overton's cousin, Volma Overton Jr., shared the sweet story on his Facebook page. Volma Overton said when the 111-year-old saw his picture, he smiled the same way as he did in the mural.

It's telling that the mural is an accurate representation of one of Austin's most famous residents.

The original mural didn't include Overton or any other local Austinites. However, when the artist, Chris Rogers, was asked to repaint the mural, many people in the community asked him to paint some local legends alongside the national and international legends.
