When it’s 102 degrees out, normal people stay inside and enjoy civilization through Netflix, or YouTube, or anything that is indoors and has A/C. So naturally, on Sunday, we braved the heat and went out to the Los Angeles State Historic Park to bask in the gloriously creative Renegade Craft Fair. Maybe it sounds a bit dramatic, but seriously the sun was like this —
Here’s what we found!
This weekend we had a great day out at the Noah Purifoy Outdoor Desert Art Museum. The museum features works of Noah Purifoy (1917–2004), an assemblage sculpture artist who worked in LA and Joshua Tree, California. Recently, LACMA has displayed some of the sculptures as part of a retrospective which brought interest to this body of work (this article by KCET is an interesting read if you want to learn more).
Last month, Karen and I went to the LA Times Festival of Books at USC (all thanks to Karen, I was literally going to sit and watch Netflix that day because the new season of Daredevil is not going to watch itself!) – and it was so much fun! We went last year too and just like last year, I got way too many books. Which is the whole point I realize. Originally, I was going to make a vlog out of our adventure but this is one of those events where you go, listen to the panels and just take it all in. I decided to share the day in a short comic instead – hope you enjoy!

Besides the amazing panels and all the books, there was this awesome Rey cosplay <—link to her Instagram with even more awesomeness. I mean, seriously it’s so good. How.
