Fun visuals on the streets of LA

Downtown Farmacia

A while ago Mike told me about this crazy pharmacy he stumbled upon and yesterday Sacha, her boyfriend Jason and I went to check it out. They carry a potion to cure pretty much everything and the graphics on these items give them an added charm. Sacha and I were trying not to laugh too hard incase our behavior was offensive while Jason was asking the older lady behind the counter how exactly the “bend over” potion was meant to be used. He walked back to us just as confused. Oh, and on the “Farmacia Million Dollar” receipt, the description for the items we purchased was simply “RELIGIOUS”.

Corina Cooks

Cooking is one of the most beautiful expressions of creativity and I always admire those who make it look easy under the pressure of a million orders. Corina Wiebel, owner and head chef of Canele, is one of the few. I got to cook in her restaurant and now I’m completely spoiled by spontaneous get togethers where Corina does her magic (Below are pics of the last one. Clams and muscles cooked in foil on the grill. Simple and yum). I love her creative expression. She sees all the details and sometimes it’s what she doesn’t do to her food that counts as much as what she does. For example, you won’t see sprigs of rubbish added on at the end like so many do to make up for what’s lacking. Cause nothing’s lacking.  It tastes amazing and it’s from the heart. www.canele-la.com

Old trucks…

The red one belongs to our landlord James. I fell in love with it and then I spotted more around town. Love the typography of the logos combined with the colors and rusty texture on the back of these old trucks.
