Greetings From Silver Lake

A new piece based on some of the more iconic signs seen on Sunset Blvd in Silver Lake. I wanted to create a portrait of the neighborhood, and excluded much of the extreme corporate signage in the area in order to avoid a potential watering down of what gives Silver Lake its unique, quirky charm. I'm still loving the brown kraft paper, though it sure does eat away at those Aquarelle colored pencils...

(On a side note, this piece also made for a nice postcard— I'll have a few for sale Sunday at the Atwater Village Festival.)
