Los Angeles has been a home away from home for me since my brother moved here 20 years ago. But I’m a still a touristy nerd, in awe of the rich architectural and cultural history. Ornate theaters. Googie diners. Pristine mansions. Dingbat apartments. The whole place a dreamy mix of glam and grit. I started by drawing some of my favorite theaters and clubs, and have recently dug into the historic midcentury coffee shops. 5% of the profits of all L.A. prints sales are donated to the LA Conservancy.
