I have to say, I wasn't all that excited to take my latest week long work trip to LA... mainly, because as I've stated... it was a work trip. Not that I mind working at all, in fact Im one of the rare folks that actually do like it, yet being in such a beautiful state...palm trees everywhere... I wanted to bust out of each meeting with urgency! Not even continual bottles of water, coffee, and batches of baked oatmeal cookies could make me disinterested in the wonderful world of LA! The Hollywood hills were calling me!
... But such changed when I and my team were given the opportunity to take a planned tour of one of the Geffen museum sites. In a rugged almost dirty location sat a raw yet peaceful building, housing works from some of THEE most talented and amazing artists of our time. ...and huddled into a sweet little corner were the works of the great Lady Pink. Now, if you were a former viewer of my personal blog (back in the day), "thatskinnybrowngirl2.blogspot.com" You'll remember when I was in my grafitti days. I discovered Lady Pink and 5 minutes later I purchased my first pack of markers and simultaneously drove home while attempting to quickly develop a TAG. Needless to say, Although I pride myself in being a pretty nifty graphic designer, I lack pretty much all skills in the art of grafitti. That however doesn't stop me from indulging in the crazy pen strokes of others, and sokeing up each feeling and thought from marker to paper. This exhibit was WILD.
