Run to Sidecar Doughnuts!!!

Run to Sidecar Doughnuts!!!

No, literally, RUN!!  Burn as many calories as you can before you enter this place of sugary, utter doughnuttery bliss.  Then you can eat as many doughnuts as you want, and then take some home with you and eat some more.  At least, that’s what I did after this shoot.  😀  My first time to Sidecar was the only time I needed for it to top my list of doughnut shops.  And really, if Sidecar is nearby, what is the point of going to another doughnut shop?  This is no ordinary doughnut shop.  The doughnuts are a piece of art!  The Maven talks about this fantastic place here, give it a visit if you dare!  You’ll never want to go to another!

Get Your Art on at Location 1980!

Get Your Art on at Location 1980!

It’s not my plan to make you heart Costa Mesa as much as I have begun to, that’s my disclaimer, but after you see all of the awesomeness going on there, you may not be able to contain yourself!  We were at it again.  This time at Location 1980, an artist commune located on Placentia.  I think, in another life, this could have been my home!  These guys live, eat and breathe art. What a beautiful way to live!  They host art shows, art classes and figure drawing, to name a few, as well as one of my faves, which we are going to schedule soon… paint night!  These are some truly talented artists, it was really an honor to spend a couple of hours talking with them and hearing about how they are supporting and furthering the artist community in Costa Mesa and Orange County.  You can read more about them here from The Mesa Maven at I Heart Costa Mesa!  Here’s some pics I got of their space and interview…
