We snuck into the sprawling city of Los Angeles around 3:30
in the morning last Friday. After fueling up at a diner in the neighborhood of
Los Feliz, we soon awoke to the sunlit glory land of American film and media.
The city hums with possibility and the excitement of
whoknowswhatcouldhappentoday – and for this reason, along with beloved Carolina friends &
the weather it happens to be one of my/Rox’s favorites. It was a balmy 75
degrees outside as we took to the streets. Wanda got fixed (again!) and cruised around the town-
Sunset Boulevard, Griffin Park, Beverly Hills, Hollywood… scouting for
anythingandeveryone. Lemon Yellow Sun Warrior she is.
A little flashback- 3 years ago, I flew from Southeast
Asia into LAX and had the time of my life not knowing what I was doing. However, if you check out this Hollywood pic, you’ll notice one thing… I’m
rocking a cape I had made while finding my way through Vietnam. So to come full circle, it was a
joy to approach the city fresh from the east this time, and to reflect on how
following dreams and having persistence can truly take effect. Who knows what can happen in another 3 years... I imagine there will be a lot more Amazing Capes... with superheros rocking all kinds of future styles to boot! Another joy was seeing my friend Katie McNeill who is helping produce the most beautiful movies... go see her latest: The Place Beyond the Pines. (!!)
Stay tuned for our first commercial too… directed by Ernie
Gilbert on a carwash on Santa Monica Blvd, it should be a fun one :)
