Off Broadway

Off Broadway is a local bar, roughly built on the "American" theme of a good cocktail and a craft brewed beer. Like me, the manager is from the states, LA specifically, and appreciates real homemade Mexican food like only someone from the Southwest can ... you can taste it in his salsa.

Off Broadway actually used to just be a gallery, and still serves as one, with original artwork always adorning the walls.

Currently, some of the work on the walls is mine. Four pieces from my "POV Series" hang in the front room of the bar, where they have been since the beginning of December and will continue to hang at least through January. (photos coming this weekend)

Here are two drawings I did recently in my sketchbook, sitting at the end of the bar, looking left and right respectively.

I'm thinking I might buy some copper and turn them into etchings.
What do you think?

Two Weeks in LA and New Year's in Vegas

So I came home to LA for the two weeks straddling New Year's Weekend. On New Year's Eve, I flew from LA to Vegas, where I saw my brother for the first time in three years. It was nice spending a couple of days catching up. I also finally got to meet his girlfriend Yuko. Check out his blog "And Sometimes Why" on my blogroll for some interesting commentary.

On Sunday, I went bouldering in Red Rock with Craig Berman. We worked on the beautiful arete problem "Ultraviolet" and I narrowly failed, falling off the last even remotely difficult move, one massive hold away from the top of the boulder.

I've spent the weekdays working in my office in LA and after the boulder set at Rockreation tomorrow, I fly back to London on Monday.

Can't wait to get back to this weather and this girl.

See you on the flipside.
