I wake up to a dry, gray, concrete wasteland every day. It’s an industrial wave of man-made landscape, TOTALLY artificial, and ALL built for utility… artistic appeal took a back seat. Some say beauty didn’t even ride in the backseat, but got left behind completely. So sad.LAist wants to thank the birdie graffiti person who is decorating south Redondo Beaches walls, newspaper stands, bus stops, and electrical transformers. You’re clearly not the most talented arteest in the world, but a simple birdie sketch done with a paint pen is far cooler than the rolling monotony of parking meters, palm trees, and mailboxes. If it wasn't for you and that dude with the pixelated sticker icon, there'd be NOTHING.

I’m so fucking sick of palm trees already. For chrissakes!
