Casey William Milbrand, the artist who launched a thousand Instagram selfies and wedding proposals with his photogenic "Greetings From Buffalo" mural on Ellicott Street, is at it again.
Milbrand's new mural, a blast of bold color and '70s-era typography, on the side of CRāVing Restaurant at 1472 Hertel Ave., will bear a simple message about the surrounding neighborhood in lower-case letters: "lookin' good."
The piece is sponsored by the North Buffalo Organization, a neighborhood group working to promote and revitalize the area. It is raising money to complete the mural through its Facebook page.
The title, according to a Facebook post by the group, comes from a comment Milbrand frequently received while painting his "Greetings From Buffalo" mural in 2016.
"Our goal was to create a mural that celebrates our thriving businesses, as well as the exciting residential projects that are fueling North Buffalo’s wave of success," the post said. "With so many other murals popping up along Hertel Avenue, it’s hard not to say that our resurgent city is lookin’ good."
