One of my goals for 2010 is to become better acquainted with the artists and designers here in Los Angeles. For example, it feels to me like everyone in New York knows everyone, like they have this semblance of an organized creative culture. Los Angeles on the other hand feels like you might know a couple of people but worlds hardly merge and there’s really no commonality, even though we’re all pretty much in the same boat. That being said I have a few ideas for trying to bring people together that I’ll be speaking about in the coming months.
For now though I’d suggest that you check out the meet and greet being put on by the Graphic Artists Guild this Friday at 7PM. They’ll be meeting up at Dinah’s Family Restaurant on Sepulveda to meet new people and have some design-y conversations. I’m definitely going to try and go even though it’s an hour and half on the bus to get there.
