For my second graffiti adventure I took along my friend Sarah. We went to 203 S Garey St: the middle of Little Tokyo, the Arts District, and Skid Row. There was more graffiti than our eyes could hold…

Running of the bulls, cave painting style.

We met one of the graffiti artists that worked on this wall! But more on that later…

Reminds me of Edward Scissorhands.

It’s funny if you imagine the old man sniffing up the girl’s umbrella.

A violent rendition of Pocahontas’s Colors of the Wind.

“Turn back around and fix it, you love him.”

Tie graffiti, the new yarn bombing?

JFK doesn’t approve.

We didn’t understand this one.

Shadow graffiti! Very clever.

HOTEA? AETOH? Hot tea?

We also found these two items of contention:

Hobo igloo or art?

Preventing wildfires or lighting up? Also, wildfires… in LA…?

    Your photographs of the street graffiti are so amazing. I want to print them and plaster them all over my walls. Why did you do all the cool LA shit without me????

      I dunno but we have to go back. Also we need a large male friend to come with us, because I want my next graffiti adventure to be in the river. I’ve heard there’s great graffiti on the concrete banks, but I’ve also heard there are tribes of hobos. Supposedly they’re nice, but I think a bodyguard just in case could be a good idea.
