LA Stories

I moved to LA just over 9 years ago with plans to stay for 2. Who knew the people would be as lovely as the weather.
To celebrate my nearly 10 years in LA I’m drawing some of my LA stories. The entire project will be a series of 52 images.
Here are some of my favorites.

Nature’s Playground
I love these giant root-y ficus trees that grow all over LA. There’s a particularly epic one
in our neighborhood. The kids can’t walk by it without walking a full loop around it’s trunk.

Two things that are still amazing about LA during the middle of a pandemic. Jacarandas and bike rides.

Lunch Thief!
When you hang your backpack in an outdoor hallway the lunch bandits take note.
