Graffiti around the Arts District in DTLA. Definitely one of my favorite neighborhoods with small stores, 3 breweries (and counting), and lots of restaurants and bars.
Photos of the replica caves from the Cave Temples exhibit. The reason behind the replicas is to educate as well as help preserve the sites from wear and tear. When you visit make sure to get the tickets asap to see it, then go to the exhibit at the Research Institute to see artifacts from the site and to learn more about the history of the site as well as conservation efforts.
Pictures are not allowed in the Research Institute but my favorite item is the Pilgrims letter of introduction/passport. It is written in multiple languages and in my opinion one of the more unique items. The conservation section covers how they preserve the site, shows the materials used and samples on how the temples were constructed.

Time to Level Up! Been sitting on my art supplies for too long and I figured I’d start small with color pencils!
To get started I watched a youtube video (yes, I get to have my “Neo” moment). Picked up some of those “adult” coloring books and started. Will post up pictures on my progress soon.
