Illustrations created around New Year's 2016

These drawings document a few fun and luxurious places along the SoCal coast around New Year’s. We stayed at a Santa Monica hotel walking distance from the Santa Monica Pier (containing the “Pacific Park” amusement park). I also visited my family in Torrance again, as well as Hollywood and Griffith Park, but didn’t sketch those places again (see California: April 2015 series). Also featured here is a view from my boyfriend’s uncle’s patio in Escondido (a bit north and inland from San Diego). The last two drawings of the Venice Beach Skate Park were created on 1/4/16, a date whose geometric sequence reflects how perfect the day was.
