Los Angeles Earthquake
DECEMBER 7, 2007
Designmatters at Art Center is producing a book as part of an education initiative aimed at understanding and preparing for a major earthquake in the Los Angeles area. I taught a class last term that had students producing images to accompany the text throughout the book. Christoph Neimann came in for a workshop, he and Ann Field contributed illustrations to the book, and Stefan Sagmeister is responsible for the design of the entire book.
I was also asked to make some images as part of the introduction to the Narrative section that contains a collection of fiction, poetry, and evocative essays. This series deals with the temporary nature of the Los Angeles landscape, its history and mythology. I placed the drawings in old books as a reference to the literary nature of the section.
