Sadly I didn’t get the artist’s name but he had a few awesome canvases in a gallery on Olvera Street. #dtla View high resolution

I never tire of the Art Deco movement from the late 20s to mid 30’s. It will always look modern and sophisticated no matter how old it gets or whatever is built next to it. Apparently this beauty is still standing somewhere in LA. If someone knows where, please hit me up. I’m only in town for a few more days and would love to check it out.

Two of my all time futuristically styled rebel architects are Zaha Hadid, an the creator if this unusual masterpiece , Frank Gehry. This is the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown LA. Because of all the red tape regarding building code New York would not allow this.   #frankgehry #dtla View high resolution

Just like the historic dork that I am I might be the only person geekin’  out over rare futuristically vintage 1930 terrazzo outdoor sidewalks surrounding the entire Eastern Columbia building. It’s something I have never come across in all the buildings I studied back in New York. Is it  sad that study sidewalk history too much?

Before and after Anime Goddess transformation of Lisa @Urbanmaiko. View high resolution

Before and after Anime Goddess transformation of Lisa @Urbanmaiko.

Anime Goddess portrait transformation of Lisa @urbanmaiko from California. Lisa commissioned me to create a Goddess style portrait canvas. She’s a huge Japanese Anime fan and It was only fitting that I’d design a theatrical goddess headpiece exclusively from robot parts from the cult classic animation show “Neon Genesis Evangelion” and create a hybrid with Beijing Opera style costume. The whole design and execution took about 98 hours.
