The Echo Park TIme Travel Mart truly does carry all of your time travel essentials, but more than that it helps to financially support 826LA, the tutoring and creative writing center under the same roof. I was asked to design their storefront window on Sunset Blvd.
I was given a few quotes from the student writers at the center, who had been prompted to write about LA in the year 2050. LIke myself, many of them want to see flying cars. Of course they do. We still want our flying cars! We don’t want to be stuck down there on the Harbor Freeway, sandwiched between a huge truck and a huge building, breathing the exhaust of a thousands cars.
Most of the wood for the skyscrapers was salvaged from an old craftsman being renovated in my neighborhood. The motor that turns the mobile was meant for a disco ball. My six year old son helped me paint the flying cars.
