Having been born and raised in Los Angeles, I decided to collect landmarks around Los Angeles that embodied the unique, fun and historic nature of this city.




La CONFIDENTia is a play on the famous movie title, LA Confidential, and Los Angeles’ historical tie to the Spanish language.


At first, I wanted a rough sketch of these locations, to give it a more abstract feel. But my tendency to work with photorealism got the better of me and soon, I was drawing these landmarks with more and more accurate detail. It was also good to work on real paper, with graphite, to draw these landmarks. It was something I had not done in a very long time, due to time constraints.






Once the drawings were complete, I scanned them and started creating patterns, borders, and icons with them. These are some of the mockups.
