Los Angeles– the city of Angeles – the place where dreams do come true – la la land… Los Angeles is just, so LA! Being born and raised in Northern California gives me a little different perspective on LA. Although I do have a bias of which half of the state is “better,” I can truly say that I really do love Los Angeles too. It has such a different attitude than Northern California. It definitely imbibes so much of what “the industry” portrays (the stars, the culture, the trendy scenes) but also has it’s own unique LA flavor in many of the lesser touristy neighborhoods such as Echo Park, Silver Lake, and Los Feliz. But ultimately, the sunshine and warm temps really can’t be beat.
I loved creating this illustrated map of this famous city. I tried to capture that LA feeling with the colors and iconic sites, but truly, there is so much more to each little neighborhood, that to really capture LA’s personality, I should illustrate each neighborhood separately! Fortunately, being the second largest city in the US, creating all the neighborhood maps will keep me quite busy.
If you are interested in licensing a map or having an illustrated map of your own city, please contact me for details.
