Hollywood Nights

July 12th, 2006

At the corner of Hollywood Blvd. and Highland Avenue, there’s a big shopping complex where jazz concerts are held on warm summer evenings. You can buy a glass of wine and listen to great music, and then stroll around the shops. I didn’t draw it in this view, but the whole center court has a Babylonian motif. No, I’m not kidding …. take a look at: Hollywood and Highland. I think my favorite “faux sculptures” are the two bas-relief Mesopotamian winged creatures that flank the facade of the Victoria’s Secret store. They both have purses or shopping bags in their hands. Gotta love it.

Anyway, while others were facing the musicians, I listened with delight and found a seat behind a potted “kangaroo’s paw” plant and drew the crowd.

  3. I haven’t been down to Hollywood Blvd. for years, so haven’t seen the remake of this corner. Sure spent a lot of my adolescent years down there, however. My girlfriend Lorita and I were going to the Hollywood Bowl, but she died unexpectedly this weekend. I’m so bummed on so many levels.

  4. Hey, your scene has got one of our tall fan palms that I posted this week in my geelong-visual-diary! Our councillors have gone mad with tropical type trees in our southern city of Geelong. I do like your drawings and paintings and the variations with different lines, etc.

  6. I think it’s amazing how you’ve managed to keep the perspective of the people in the crowd. And you’ve achieved a distinctive character for each of them with lovely clean simple lines. It’s a lovely drawing.
