Chicago is a gigantic open-air museum of hand painted signs and murals where you can still find gold leaf lettering in shop windows and ghost signs litter the city’s brick walls. This handmade sign is on the wall of a Mexican garage near my apartment.
Address
Mexican Mechanic’s Mural, 6817 North Clark Street, Chicago, Chicago, United States
Current city: Chicago
My name is Romain, I am a graphic designer from Paris. I currently live in Chicago, USA. I am interested in things like people’s behaviour and what conditions it. Especially how social structures manage to influence people’s ideas and understandings of the world around them to the point that we believe our behaviour is natural and forget that it is cultural and time based.

Lost Eras has easily become one of my favorite shops to explore; hidden just outside of Chicago, it stretches far and narrow, crowded with lost treasures. Walking through it, it's hard not to begin imagining the stories of the objects that turn up in its walls, and the people that once held them. Not to mention the building itself is a piece of history, as in the 1920's it was home of the night club the "Club Detour" which had many artists play in it's halls such as Louis Armstrong, Count Basey and Ella Fitzgerald.

Ongoing favorite place to sit at the bar or more covertly, at a table, chatting with a friend over the seasonal best. Continuous rotation of ingredients creatively meshed with tradition, their food is divine. Similarly, their personnel is familiar, friendly, fashionable and warm.

Chicago has great brutalist architecture but this is one I pass by all the time. It has been burned into my mind and I'm pretty sure it can fly.
