Newport Beach, California
April 01, 2011
I attended art school (The Art Center College of Design) in Los Angeles, and lived there for 11 years but I didn't know Newport Beach like I do now. You learn a lot about a town, even without personally visiting it, when you research and draw a cartoon map of the area. Aside from being noted as one of America's richest cities, Newport Beach is also known as a mecca for surfers because of its famous surf spot, the Wedge, located south of town at the tip of the Balboa Peninsula . It was also the home of renowned actor John Wayne. I located his home on the map.
If you would like to have a map created of your beach community, famous or otherwise, I can draw it for you. Please contact me, and I'll be glad to answer you questions.
