I went to Bolt City Studio in Alhambra / Los Angeles.
Alhambra is a beautiful town located in a place near Pasadena.
However, today's bus doesn't come though it waited for one hour or more. I walked 4-5 blocks, got on other routes, and finally arrived at Alhambra.
First of all, it went to nucleus of the gallery shop in the next in the studio. Here is a popular gallery shop that positively sells the art of a young artist.
when I had been looking items in the store during a little, I met Fright Comic artist Kazu Kibuishi and Amy Kim Ganter.
