Pop culture and entertainment is a huge industry here in Los Angeles. I spent a day immersed in fanciful creations.
First stop was at Downtown Disney for 43rd Worldwide Sketchcrawl. This colorful Lego store with an amazing dragon made of Legos caught my eye. This sketch was drawn on location and colored later at home.
Next stop was at Anaheim Convention Center nearby, where WonderCon was taking place. This convention that celebrates popular arts attracts a lot of people in costumes. The
costumes the people wear get more innovative each year (and obscure, as my pop culture knowledge
fades away). This is a compilation of many little sketches I did over a few pages.
People who were dressed up were enjoying themselves: resting, eating,
chatting and some of them started jump-roping. One of the reasons I enjoy sketching is being able to observe and record people doing activities in everyday life, in whatever costumes they choose to wear - we are all actors in this stage called life!
