Peter at the Formosa by suburbanbeatnik Peter at the Formosa by suburbanbeatnik
This was a sketchbook cover from my days at Art Center that became increasingly complex the more I towed it around. It features Peter Janacek, a boozy and embittered Beat Generation poet turned screenwriter, standing- no doubt hungover- in front of the Formosa, a famous Hollywood bar that's been around forever. (Of course, he'd be more embittered if he could see what's happened to the Formosa now- shadowed by a colossal and corporate mega-mall that has Jamba Juice, among other things. Ugh!)

You are great. I just thought I should boost the artist's ego a bit more... *laughs; smiles good naturedly*

Very nice, as usual.

Which "Art Center" do you speak of?

Art Center College of Design, in Pasadena, California! [link] It was my alma mater. Or I should say, my most recent alma mater..
