“Weather you vote or not, it’s just pretty dang cool that a creation from ArtsFest Montana is among the top,” according to Great Falls Montana Tourism’s weekly newsletter.

According to Street Art Cities, Cobre said of his mural: “It’s so easy to get lost in his gaze, because I love his eyes. They are brown. Black coffee, without sugar… That coffee that makes you sleepy, coffee that makes you sleepless. Another night without being able to sleep, because of that coffee, which tomorrow I will want again.”
