Last November my graduate class (Hartford Art School Low Residency MFA Illustration) met in Pasadena, CA. We met some really great illustrators and some really great characters.

The assignment is to create an illustration based on your experiences/influences of the area. I used one of my friends and fellow graduate Paul to model for me, thanks Paul. One of the illustrators that visited with us commented that in Pasadena the higher the hedge surrounding a property, the more prestigious the occupants are. Looks like Paul needs to work on his prestige, the hedge isn't high enough.
