A year ago Sofia Borges, editor of victionary (a graphic art and design book publisher) asked me to contribute to a city guide book they were putting together for Los Angeles. Being a passionate Angeleno, it really was a no brainer for me and I happily forwarded my top picks for Landmarks & Architecture, Cultural & Art Space, Shops & Markets, Restaurants & Cafes, and Nightlife hot spots. I received my copy last week and I am so pleased that they decided to feature my L.A. River pick for their Landmarks & Architecture section! It’s also super cool to be included amongst 60 of the local creatives featured in this book. “Local creative”… I’ll take it!
Showing my L.A. River love in print! The river has always held a special place in my heart and I’m even happier to point people to the beauty that is hiding in plain sight.
“Forget what you think about the L.A. River. Try a night visit with someone special, entering through the gate of Los Feliz Boulevard.” – Me, silly!
“Sunny, laid back lifestyle combined with creative talents, Los Angeles is the hub of world entertainment and technology. Whether it’s a one-day stopover or a longer trip, CITIx60 Los Angeles is your inspirational guide to places that only insiders of California know and go. Initiated and edited by viction:ary, the pocket-sized guide sports an artistic edge with a city map jacket drawn by Josh Evans as well as practical info essential for a satisfying trip.” – victionary.com
My profile, as seen on the Landmarks & Architecture spread of the city guide. So neat that victionary happened to photograph the section I was featured in. Can you spot me on the bottom half of the right page?
“A unique collaboration with local creatives from selected cities, each CITIx60 guide points you to 60 hangouts loved by 60 stars of the cities’ creative scene, covering architecture, art spaces, shops and markets, eating and entertainment. All featured artists and designers are at the cutting edge of what’s on and when, and known for their accomplishments in fields across advertising, architecture and graphics, fashion, industry and food, music and publishing.” – victionary.com
