Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910),[1] better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. He wrote The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and its sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885),[2] the latter often called "the Great American Novel."
Twain grew up in Hannibal, Missouri, which provided the setting for Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer. After an apprenticeship with a printer, he worked as a typesetter and contributed articles to his older brother Orion's newspaper. He later became a riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River before heading west to join Orion in Nevada. He referred humorously to his singular lack of success at mining, turning to journalism for the Virginia City Territorial Enterprise.[3] In 1865, his humorous story, "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County" was published, based on a story he heard at Angels Hotel in Angels Camp California where he had spent some time as a miner. The short story brought international attention, even being translated to classic Greek.[4] His wit and satire, in prose and in speech, earned praise from critics and peers, and he was a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty.

MODERN MET covers Einstein at The Reserve

 photo Screenshot2013-05-09at11004PM_zps46d33048.png"Recently, American artist David Flores was commissioned to create two of the four murals that will cover the walls within The Reserve L.A. Formerly a U.S. Post Office, The Reserve L.A. is a 20-acre site that will house Microsoft and TMZ offices. The project concept states, "The Reserve has all the elements required to act as a catalyst for creativity while supporting business needs and the corporate vision."

In preparation for the grand opening on May 8, 2013, Branded Arts was commissioned to organize and curate the creative workspace. Using a photo of Albert Einstein as inspiration, Flores created this two-story mural that can be viewed through the glass front building. From a distance, it's easy to make out Einstein's eyes, nose and mustache. Then, up close, visitors to the building can appreciate the texture of the bold blocks of bright, vivid paints, set off by thick, black outlined edges."
