This mural was painted by Daniel Johnston in 1993. Ten years earlier, Johnston put this frog named Jeremiah on the front of his album "Hi How Are You: The Unfinished Album." It sparked a mental health nonprofit called "The Hi, How Are You Project."

On "Hi, How Are You Day" every January, Austinites are encouraged to check on their neighbors and friends to really ask how they're doing.
