Why do people get to have all of the fun? We dog folk need to relax some every now and again, too. After months and months of work and finally convincing the people here to let me share a guide of cool things to do and places to go for LA dogs, I’m proud to share the Los Angeles, I’m Yours Drink Map–For Dogs!
Jeanie Chong is a Los Angeles based artist and designer. She does a lot of calligraphy and typemaking and often combines both practices for very creative explorations of letters. We stumbled into her work by seeing her Folded Alphabet series which reminded us of the similarly constructed Novel Brand book goods. One of her art/type mashings we particularly enjoyed was a series of dedications to letters through paper called Paper Alphabets. It’s a bright and creative take on lettering.
Rebecca Farr is currently dabbling in collage. The painter has turned to late nineteenth century photography and historical images as a resource of images to place in her work. “I was doing very traditional, straight figurative paintings and now I am thinking of paint with collage and painting from collage,” she says, reflecting on what she is currently working on. “Right now I’m looking at the scale of what I have been doing and bringing that back to full painting informed by collage. I’ve been really captureD by old inky photography from the mid-1800s to early 1900s–but I don’t feel settled with just presenting that image again.”

As a means by which to chronicle what is going on in the American cultural zeitgeist and how we cater to that, The Hollywood And Highland Character Count is an infrequently occurring sociological examination. Every few Fridays, we’ll share who the performers are that are clogging the Hollywood and Highland sidewalks and see how they change and shift in relationship to what is happening in the entertainment world. We’ll make predictions, keep count of who stays and goes, and log just what is happening at the best microcosm of what is on the world’s mind: Hollywood and Highland.
