LA Summer Festival Time

Moleskine, Pencil, Photoshop | July 10, 2005 | By

One of the great things about Los Angeles (and other big cities) is the wealth of summer festivals held every weekend. This weekend was the annual Lotus Festival at Echo Park, home of the largest lotus bed in the United States. I photographed and drew for several hours this weekend, enjoying the great variety of faces, like this Hispanic youth, drawn in pencil in my Moleskine, but finished in Photoshop because the thin paper just won’t take wet media. More about the festival and more art in the days to come …

PS. Bean is doing fine. She is now 6 inches tall and living outdoors so she doesn’t get too “rangy” reaching for the light bulb. Very soon she’ll be ready for transplanting.
