How You Are
About this artwork
Artist John McCabe illustrates an anthropomorphic elephant a step from the signage of a tap beer pub. He creates this piece for a panel for his song How You Are from his EP, These Years. The ballad tells about leaving the US to live in Australia. Later on, a dear friend passed away, and the lyrics fit, giving it more meaning. We used to drink at Kate O'Brien's bar, south of Market Street, San Francisco, shares John.
