California: A Sketchbook

After moving to California, I spent a year driving around the state. I went to some cool places: a cattle ranch in Fresno, a Silicon Valley startup, Chez Panisse, the beach at Maverick’s, Sequoia and Joshua Tree. I met people like Oakland Mayor Jerry Brown, and the rapper Funk Doobiest. California is beautiful and diverse, made for exploration. I spent a lot of time on the phone trying to convince people to let me see inside their studio, farm, or prison.
