Lil Jerry.

Giant Round Artist

This fiberglass statue is right off of I-35 in northern Austin. "Lil' Jerry" is the name on his sweater, but he isn't so little; he's a big round artist waving his paint brush around. It would be fun to stand in front of him and hold a picture, maybe with a famous painting on it, and create a shot that looks like he's painting it.

Is that a beret on his head or an eggplant?
