COOLEST thing EVER! Ellie is featured on a mural in downtown Boise, 5th and Main Street. It was created by Hawk Sahlein with Sector 17 and is from a photo taken by Gregg Mizuta at a benefit for Surel's Place. Interestingly, the photos from that day are also the one we used for our CD art that Ellie recorded with . Due to the fact that the 2 story part of the building faces the street, the image was flipped... Ellie is not left handed. LOL
