It's been raining off and on in Los Angeles the past several days, so I've turned to my image archive for some inspiration. I'm working on a quick poster project for an ice cream social. I’ve already created a playful typeface for the event, however I also keep coming back to how I have heard southern California sunsets described as “sherbet skies.” Here are my photos of a few extraordinary moments:
