Hands down, the most incredible mural I saw while visiting Lynn, Massachusetts, and perhaps that I’ve ever seen is this collab between JPO and Miss Zukie.
“Zukies are a fluffy and chubby character that don’t talk,” the Peru native said. “They communicate with facial expressions and thought bubbles.”
They sound like my people!
I’m in love.
See this mural on Google Maps. Better yet, go see it in person. It is awesome!

We activate spaces that foster more livable, economically viable, and equitable communities while retaining the voice and integrity of area residents.
On Saturday I zipped up north to take in the sights. It was fantastic. Never having been to Lynn before, I found myself wishing I had company and time to stay the night and explore all the nooks and crannies on foot. The downtown area featured walkable streets with interesting sights. It seemed like a great place to have a drink and go for a stroll on a warm spring evening.
Here are a few of the sights from my day trip:
