My favorite downtown sign, spotted from a new high view.
DTLA Love: Eclipse Connection

DTLA Love: Eclipse Connection

I know you don’t have to ask if I’ve watched Eclipse already. The Riley character gets a noteworthy nod from me – it was the first time in a Twilight movie that I went, Oh, someone that is actually believable as a vampire, in a scary, but not cheesy, and kind of hot way. Right...
Color Scheming: Junker Gardens

Color Scheming: Junker Gardens

I got my wish. The weather in L.A. has been very Seattle-like, especially yesterday. And I hated it. Here’s hoping it’s sunshine-y and warm this long weekend.
Downtown Discovery: Junker Gardens

Downtown Discovery: Junker Gardens

I know what you’re thinking. Where in downtown Los Angeles might one find such a beautiful assortment of flowers? Try one of the junker gardens planted around Farmlab. I want one!
Color Scheming: Ciudad

Color Scheming: Ciudad

(* By friendly request! *) Downtown saw an influx of new Mexican restaurants last year, some of which quickly became my favorites, so my long-standing choice for Sunday happy hour, Ciudad, from Top Chef Master Susan Feniger, took a backseat for awhile. Ciudad and I go way back – boyfriend and I both celebrated birthdays...
Garden Variety

Garden Variety

Gifts for the mothers and the newly confirmed niece. My thumb may be blacker than a moonless night sky, but I can sure whip up a succulent garden in less than half an hour. (And true to form, there is a heart-shaped Argyroderma in there.) Ro Succs – that’s not inappropriate at all right?
Downtown Discovery: 6th Street Bridge

Downtown Discovery: 6th Street Bridge

Been meaning to explore more of my fine city, since I’ve fallen into a pattern of the same old downtown haunts, and I know there’s so much more I’ve yet to see. Plus, aside from gas and other transportation expenses, it makes for a pretty cheap weekend. This is underneath the troubled but still iconic and...

Color Scheming: Tiara Cafe

Color Scheming: Tiara Cafe

Lately I’ve been inspired by creative color palettes in design – particularly the colors of the new Broken Bells CD that make my heart sing – and have been trying to come up with some interesting color schemes for current projects. Today I’m sampling from an old photo of the sparkly, pink, and pretty Tiara Cafe...
Fashion Illustrated at Nucleus' Line of Style

Fashion Illustrated at Nucleus’ Line of Style

If I could draw (well), I think I would’ve tried my hand at fashion illustration. Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra put on a great show featuring two of my favorite things, along with a couple of fashion shows. And the runway created by Matik is just incredible – so simple, made from everyday materials, but so...
Love Angeles: Snaps

Love Angeles: Snaps

Since I got a new Blackberry with a data plan (yeah, I know, welcome to 2010), I’ve been snapping more photos on my phone. So much more portable than an SLR. Check them all out on the Tumblr: http://loveangelesla.tumblr.com
Shot Callin'

Shot Callin’

The BF and his friend directed another music video, and the studio will be working on the motion graphics in post – hence the green screen shots below. Though the budgets for music videos are pretty much nonexistent nowadays, it’s always fun to be shooting in the studio – especially on a half day schedule....
