    News — Los Angeles

    Designing T-shirts for Los Angeles

    Coming up with designs about Los Angeles and that represent Los Angeles is not an easy process. It is always an active experiment. But the more I work the more I see the possibilities of design. Some from this part of town and some from this culture. Add them together and you can have a failure or a wonderful design approach. I definitely wanted a positive direction with creative unbounded. At some point the design has to overcome the fear of people not appreciating or accepting it and just exist on its own. Every design is a contribution to the greater cause and has a voice that can speak to someone here in Los Angeles. Design on.

    Landmarks of L.A.—Symbols of America

    In one of my latest designs, the City Cloud shirt, I combined every Los Angeles Landmark I created into one large cloud design. The imagery represents the historical and cultural significance of Los Angeles, covering a long history since the 1800's as a city (obviously, roots go much further than that) and all the various groups of people who have made this city and surrounding areas what they are today. Check out the details in the landmarks and you will be surprised to find that they cover LA and greater LA, maybe something significant near you. There is still so much more to represent. The city is so diverse in it's heritage and contemporary characteristics, that it has something for everyone somewhere in its sprawling mass. It is a city of America and transparently represents that. Take pride in your L.A.

    Beauty of Los Angeles

    There are so many parts of Los Angeles that have their own special historical and cultural significance. From Little Tokyo to Bunker Hill to Olivera Street to Venice and beyond, the lay of the land various so much with all the variations in food, fashion, ceremonies and celebrations. There is too much to do and to much to represent accurately, although I will give it my best to represent them as I continue my work.

    Making L.A. Designs for Los Angeles and Beyond

    So, why would I limit myself to making shirts for just L.A.? Well, in short, they are not just for Los Angeles, but for anyone interested in the spirit of a major city in America. Fresh ideas, styles and dialogs intertwine to create some new designs and final concepts. The work is detailed in it's use of location specific visuals, such as using maps as background textures, text calling back to the history of movie poster titles and using a bright spectrum of colors to represent the various cultures and people here in Los Angeles. Universally, this can apply to many places across American and beyond.
