bluhg. I lived in LA also and there just isn't any response, support, etc...for the fine art people (fine people, not fine art) around that town. the town just ain't overly interested en masse. boob? where boob?
LA is dog chocolate central for posters because LA sucks for making posters, not because of the posterers but because of LA. It is hard to understand considering the wealth of pop culture horror that LA doesn't do much to support the poster life.
