L e tt e r s Keep Motors off the Bike Path Re: “Lookout, Landlubber! Clueless kayakers and paddleboarders should start heeding boat traffic,” Opinion, Aug. 24 The use of high-speed electric bicycles on the beach and Ballona Creek bike paths also warrants investigating. Electric bicycles seem to go more than 35 miles per hour, putting pedestrians — especially children — at risk. Bike paths are for recreational use and manual-powered travel; I doubt they were intended for motorized vehicles.

Surprised I haven’t heard of a major incident yet. Jay Berkowitz, Los Angeles Safer Streets Task Force is a Diversion Re: “Road Diet Opposition Won’t Relent,” News, Aug. 17 I am writing to express serious concern that the new Playa del Rey Safer Streets Task Force convened by L.A. City Councilman Mike Bonin to review recent traffic lane closures did not include the appointment of David Voss, an 18-year elected

volunteer on the WestchesterPlaya Neighborhood Council. David has extensive knowledge of local history and the ins and outs of the lane reductions, from the actions of the city Department of Transportation to the impact on local businesses. His years of service would make including him on the task force as much a no-brainer as restoring the eastbound lane on Culver. Since the announcement of the Task Force membership last week, there has been tremendous chatter on Next Door, with many

Featuring a presentation by Pacifica Alumnae Kelly Carlin, daughter of legendary comedian George Carlin.

Saturday, October 7th 11am–3pm Please join us on Pacifica’s Ladera Lane Campus for a complimentary open house designed for students interested in Fall 2017 enrollment. In addition to presentations by Kelly Carlin and others, admissions and financial aid counselors will be on hand, and a light lunch will be served.

Growing Up with George.

Playa residents suggestion the task force will be incapable of being impartial given the strengths of the individuals “for” lane reductions and the omission of Voss. I have voiced similar concerns to Bonin’s office and have yet to get a response. I don’t really expect one, as I am increasingly convinced that the task force is a diversion vehicle contrived to diminish local outcry against the lane closures. Voss’ admission is exhibit A for this thesis. Fred Wallace, Playa del Rey The Proud Bird has Crash-Landed Re: “Change is Good: The Proud Bird’s more casual reboot features a menu that’s worth the trip,” Food & Drink, Aug. 31 The remodel of the Proud Bird has ruined it. A fine upscale restaurant has been turned into a food court, no longer a place to celebrate a special event. And an inconveniently laid out, poorly managed and very noisy food court to boot. On Aug. 19, two friends and I visited the remodeled Proud Bird for the first time. We arrived at about 6:30 p.m. and chose the barbeque station. We were prevented from ordering by a backlog, apparently caused by understaffing. The two cashiers were diverted to assembling orders. One of them said she would be just a minute, but was away from the cash register for a much longer time. Just as we were about to leave, a cashier asked me for my order and said the food would be ready in 10 minutes. We ordered, and the food arrived in less than 10 minutes. I had to order drinks at a different location and get utensils at a third location, which was inconvenient. Finally, we sat with our food at one of the food-court-style long tables. The food is good, as Richard Foss wrote. But the noise level is exceptionally high, making conversation very difficult and ruining the dining experience. We decided to buy desserts and take them back to my house, where we can converse with ease. We bought the only desserts we saw sold there: small, square cakes (three for $5) offered at the drink station, where again it took a long time to get our order taken. The cakes were good, too, but the downsides of the new configuration — especially the noise level — rule out the remodeled Proud Bird for a return visit. James Kallis, Westchester

Artists on Artists Westchester mixed-media artist Mark Andrew Allen on Playa Vista found-object sculptor Ron Schafer: “Ron works with found objects to make thoughtprovoking art that is beautiful to look at. The simplicity of his ideas and his choices of materials make the works intriguing.”

Venice filmmaker/illustrator Rohitash Rao on Venice painter Emily Van Horn: “Her work is otherworldly to me. Her paintings feel like we’re glimpsing a parallel universe. I often see myself inside her paintings, running between all the colors and shapes.”

Playa del Rey graphic designer Art Sims on Santa Monica photographer D Stevens

Venice painter Emily Van Horn on Venice painter Monica Perez:

“D Stevens, he shoots social issues. He captures them in the most vivid, conscientious way. Sometimes it’s shocking. It gets your attention.”

“I love and envy the minimalist chic of Monica Perez. She doesn’t mess around. Her work is bold, immediately evocative and gets right to the point. It’s deep.”

PAGE 8 THE ARGONAUT September 7, 2017

Clean {aesthetic} Creative Director Charlie Carroll on Thistle and Snow tattoo artist/ Instagrammer @lustandconsume:

Venice painter Monica Perez on Venice street artist Hagop Belian (aka Made of Hagop):

“He is exactly what I’ve always imagined an artist should be. His passion for composition, contrast and precision — blended with an overwhelming amount of natural talent — allow him to excel in the world of visual arts. In recent years he’s focused all his energy on tattooing, creating the most beautiful black-and-white illustrations I have ever seen.”

“He inspires me and many people in our neighborhood. His characters are so theatrical and dreamlike, but mostly they feel positive and hopeful. I like seeing the detail and care that goes into the illustrations, and the restraint in how they are displayed and integrated into the urban landscape.”


Venice mixedmedia artist Crystal Michealson on Venice sculptor Tanya Ragir: “Tanya’s passion for life is transformed into incredible artwork. She captures strength and struggle in her warrior women sculptures. Tanya inspires me to explore and expand the boundaries of my own art.”

DSC06073

Chef D. Brandon Walker of The Mar Vista on Mar Vista painter/ muralist Mitchelito Orquiola: “He’s the most prolific visual artist in the neighborhood, turning out masterpieces in what seems like minutes.”

Mar Vista painter/ muralist Mitchelito Orquiola on Mar Vista poet Erika Lane Enggren (@poetry.lane): “Her poetry are like cures. Whatever ails your heart, her words target the very source. It’s inspiring to see strangers pick up one of her poems and weep.”

Mar Vista poet Erika Lane Enggren on Chef Jill Davie of The Mar Vista: “Jill is one of the hardest-working women in this community. She puts hours and sweat and love into her kitchen, and it shows.”

54 / 59

Chef Jill Davie of The Mar Vista on Mar Vista musician Runson Willis III of the Night Owl Players: “Runson’s sounds, music and soul make me believe he could very well be the answer for world peace.”

Mar Vista musician Runson Willis III on Mar Vista musician Ben Kirnion: “He’s an amazing composer of quality sounds. He’s humble and very kind, choosing his words wisely.”

DJ BU$R1D3R’s Venice Vibes Playlist If the offbeat boardwalk, chill walk streets and chic grit of the Venice experience had an official soundtrack, BU$R1D3R would be the guy to put it together. So we asked the longtime Venice deejay, musician and producer to create a playlist of local artists that would give the amorphous Venice Vibe some sonic definition. Listen along at bit.ly/busriderplaylist.

Deploi, “Organized” The Fever Uplifting hip-hop at its finest. Deploi’s lyrics infect you with positivity. His voice shines bright and the hook is fire. Love this track! ’Hood: Mar Vista / Venice National Anthem, “Come to California” Come to California A raucous proclamation to all the beauty that is California. Killer bass n’ drums carry you the entire cut. It’s one of those dance rock jams that you just love to shake and sing along to. ’Hood: Venice /Culver City / Marina del Rey King Fantastic, “Lost Art of Killing” Finger Snaps and Gun Claps This track is OG Westside to the core. The mix of vivid criminal rhymes and deep dark beats speak to me on so many levels. This song is tough — a salute to bad guys everywhere. ’Hood: Venice / Marina del Rey

Gallery and Sunday Sonics (The Mar Vista). Give him a shout at spherecompany.com. Runson Willis III, “Soul to Soul” Runson Willis III Runson oozes soul. Stripped down with no gimmicks, his truth is evident. He’s also a class act on guitar and pleasantly hypnotic with his voice. This fine musician is one of the top neo soul singer/songwriters out of the Westside. ’Hood: Mar Vista

House of Vibe All Stars, “Contributed” Westside Tribe These guys have been reppin’ the Westside for a minute now. There are excellent musicians in this outfit. This song is one of my faves as it is stripped down to heartfelt lyrics and piano. ’Hood: Venice

Suicidal Tendencies, “You Can’t Bring Me Down” Lights, Camera, Revolution This is brilliant, from the guitar intro to the drop of the verse. It’s aggressive and urban, with a message. This group features OGs from the neighborhood who threw it down. HARD. ’Hood: Venice

BU$R1D3R, “The Sun Goes Down” Crash You’ve gotta love the music you create. This is a dark contemplative piece that crosses buzzy tech beats, synths and piano with chilled passion. This is a meditative, calm, futuristic cut. ’Hood: Venice

Jane’s Addiction, “then she did” Ritual de lo Habitual The artistry on this song is chilling. The music soars over your senses as Perry Farrell serenades a lost love. The song is deeply moving and vulnerable. It’s just too good. ’Hood: Venice

PAGE 10 THE ARGONAUT September 7, 2017

The Doors, “Not to Touch the Earth” Waiting for the Sun This is one of those forgotten gems. Intense from the start, the song keeps building. Really though, what can I say? It’s The Doors. Jim’s raspy voice spews potent poetic lines over Robbie, John & Ray’s music. Classic. ’Hood: Venice Black Realz ft. LT Wigglez, “Thought You Knew” Getta Ent. Music Black Realz and crew’s lyrics burn you hotter than a trap house in Compton. This is a club anthem. One of those get lit, late-night bangers. Hot! ’Hood: Inglewood / La Cienega Ill:ogical SRL, “Cheated” The Outermost The two deejays and opera singer in this trio are a brilliant sonic sensation. Trip-hop with glimpses of drum and bass create a palette for the alluring yet haunting female vocals. It’s amazing listening to the creative power of two powerhouse deejays in the studio. ’Hood: Venice / Mar Vista

Mike Sonksen, who also goes by Mike the Poet, is a thirdgeneration Los Angeles native acclaimed for poetry performances, published articles, mentoring teen writers and leading poetic walking tours. Sonksen first fell in love with the Westside while attending UCLA in the 1990s. His work has since been a part of programming for KCET, the Los Angeles Public Library and Friends of the Los Angeles River. His most recent book, “Poetics of Loca-

tion,” was published last year by Writ Large Press. According to the Los Angeles Times, “he might well be the hardest-working bard in Los Angeles.” “Mike the Poet sings the history, people, dreams and even shadows of L.A. city, one of the most seen and filmed cities of the world, yet little known or understood,” said Los Angeles Poet Laureate Emeritus Luis J. Rodriguez. “His poems are instant pop-and-crackle chronicles, more news than the 11 p.m.

news hour, yet they are also jackhammer words crashing onto concrete walkways, the palmdrenched horizon through smog-laden sky, the truth that dares to include everyone.” On Oct. 1, Sonksen is giving free poetic walking tours in Santa Monica as part of the city’s Open Streets event. Tours happen from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and begin from the Camera Obscura building in Palisades Park. Visit smgov.net for more information.

‘Drawing Without Looking’

Venice artist Allison Kunath trusts her hands to speak for her eyes

Bryce Hirschberg’s new film “Counterfeiters,” to the AMC Classic Marina Marketplace 6. 4335 Glencoe Ave., Del Rey. marindelreyfilmfestival.org

By Christina Campodonico “Drawing without looking” might sound like an oxymoron. But for Allison Kunath it feeds her creative practice, which ranges from inky silhouettes of couples cuddling to whimsical watercolors of floating hands to geometrically precise portraits of icons like Frida Kahlo, Marie Curie and Georgia O’Keefe, to name a few. At the base of this rendering repertoire — earning her over 22,000 followers on Instagram, as well as commissions from Lululemon Athletica and Playa Vistabased VR and 360-degree video company RYOT News — are the Venice-based artist’s blind contour drawings: outlines of friends and faces she encounters that she draws without looking down at the page or lifting her pen up from the paper. It’s her way of connecting with the world around her, but also retreating from it. “It ends up being like an invisibility cloak at parties,” says Kunath, 30, of her blind contour drawings. “It’s a great tool to hide behind so I can be in a social situation where I want to be, but still be an introvert and just sort of sit back and observe people.” For this special arts issue of The Argonaut, Kunath drew Christopher Abel Alameda, better known as “Nicely,” the head barista at Menotti’s on Windward Avenue. Like a postcard, it arrived in my inbox from afar. Kunath was traveling through Northern California at the time; in September she’ll conclude a month-long trip through the Pacific Northwest, with more destinations on the horizon. Like her travels, the lines have no end in sight. The Argonaut: How did you start doing these blind contour drawings? Kunath: I learned the technique in probably junior high school. It was just a warm-up activity to sort of get your brain connected to your hands more fluidly. And I’d totally forgotten about it. Ten years ago, a girlfriend of mine brought it up on a road trip — she says, “Do you remember blind contours?” and I say, “Let’s do one!” We’re sitting in the back seat together. She says, “Should we draw each other at the same time?” And I say, “Oh my God. Thank you so much for bringing this back to me!” It reignited [blind contour drawing] for me, and I started drawing friends at restaurants when we waited for food or coffee.

“Buen Provecho” @ Annenberg Beach House

Allison Kunath’s blind contour drawing of Menotti’s barista Christopher “Nicely” Abel Alameda kill, [I’ll draw them]. But I would say 75% of the people that I’ve drawn are people that I know. It’s like when you carry a Polaroid camera and snap a picture of everybody who comes into your living room. It’s become a reflex. … I draw in the same little notebook. I use the little moleskin notebooks with recycled kraft paper covers; they’re tiny and thin. There’s never a time when I don’t have one with me, so I’m ready at any moment.

Are you ever surprised by the results of your drawings? Like anything that you do a lot, I’ve How do you pick your subjects? developed a certain muscle memory If I catch eyes with somebody across the around it. I work really hard to try to draw room, or notice someone has an interestwhatever it is that I’m actually looking at, ing look, or they’re just in the line of so it can stay honest to the person and sight, and I happen to have five minutes to how they’re unique. PAGE 12 THE ARGONAUT September 7, 2017

Then there’s inevitably a point in every drawing where I’m like, “Oh, man. I actually have no idea where I am.” I totally forget if I’ve already drawn someone’s eyes, or if there’s one missing, or where did I put the ear? There’s some that turn out so solid, and everything’s in the right place. Then sometimes it’s like, “Holy moly! Where did that come from?” … and those are so much more fun.

Idol Worship

Alejandro Gehry paints a pantheon of punk rock women

By Christina Campodonico Defiantly figurative, unabashedly sexual and intently focused on the female form, painter Alejandro Gehry’s work is a far cry from the abstract aesthetic of his earliest artistic influences. Billy Al Bengston, Ed Moses, Chuck Arnoldi and Larry Bell — pioneers of the Los Angeles postwar art scene and the California light, space and pop movements — kept company with his famous father, the world-renowned starchitect Frank Gehry, and their Venice studios weren’t far from the family home in Santa Monica. “I sort of grew up hanging out with them and going to their openings and their studios. At three or four years old, I’d be able to point [their artwork] out in a museum,” recalls Gehry, who chose to locate

his own art studio in Venice. At 41, Gehry surrounds himself with the creative energy of fierce women — namely titans of punk rock, like Lorna Doom of The Germs, The Bags’ Alice Bag and X’s Exene Cervenka. Their bold music and powerful personas not only inspire Gehry, they envelop him. His outsized, 5’x7’ portraits of them cover his studio walls from floor to ceiling, a pantheon of female punk rock power. Lorna is a boss, sporting a killer red jacket on one wall. Alice is nonchalant with a pouty lip in the back of the studio. Exene looks like a lioness under a mane of ombré curls. Poly Styrene of X-Ray Spex and the entire classic lineup of The Slits are there, too. “I really do love them all,” says Gehry, who’s unable to pick a favorite, though

PAGE 14 THE ARGONAUT September 7, 2017

Alice Bag resonates with him because of their shared Latinx heritage (Gehry’s mom is Panamanian). “I admire them all. I would love to have worked from them in real life.” Over the past two years, Gehry has been working from photographs to create the series “Women of Punk.” Starting Monday, Sept. 11, select pieces go on display at Wabi Sabi as part of EAT ART, a local initiative to showcase Venice artists on the restaurant’s walls and build a onenight menu around each artist’s work. For Gehry, these portraits are an opportunity to honor artists that collective memory tends to neglect. “The thing about punk is … most people immediately think of the Ramones or the Sex Pistols. A lot of women are overlooked,” he says. “I wanted to do this

series to make people aware of these women that were strong, furious, talented and didn’t put up with any bullshit.” As a male artist depicting female bodies, Gehry is well aware of the pitfalls of treading in such territory, but strives to approach his work from a mindset of respect. “It’s tough because you can be accused of trying to objectify women. I wanted to sort of ... pay tribute, but without objectifying,” says Gehry. “While I was working on these paintings, I was definitely playing a lot of the female artists.” Recreating vintage punk rock poster art for his backgrounds, Gehry’s portraits are certainly not pinups. They read like homages to the music and style that he grew up with in Santa Monica, seeing local skate-surf kids and teens in the ’70s


ArgonautNews.com and ’80s adopt the look of punk musicians like Siouxsie Sioux from Siouxsie and the Banshees. The multicolored mohawks, buzz cuts and black lips of the punk movement were a source of inspiration and continue to inform the artist’s personal identity. Gehry’s hair is spiked and his arms are covered with tattoos — a skull and cross bones, a black heart, a little bomb about to go off. Though Gehry’s style screams punk rock, the classics remain just as important to him. He counts Austrian symbolist painter Gustav Klimt and early 20thcentury figure painter Egon Schiele among his artistic “heroes,” and dad made sure he was schooled in art history from an early age. “Before I could watch cartoons on Saturday, I had to sit with him and look at a different art book,” he recalls. But Gehry also learned a healthy amount of disrespect for traditional artistic

conventions from his dad. Growing up in the famous (some might say infamous) Frank Gehry Residence on 22nd Street in Santa Monica — a quaint Dutch colonial customized with angular additions of corrugated metal and chain link, much to the chagrin of some neighbors — the younger Gehry learned that great art doesn’t need to be liked or accepted. “The neighbors hated it,” he recalls. “People used to throw their used condoms and dog shit in our lawn … graffiti and stuff all the time. I remember my dad actually had a sculpture. It was a Larry Bell. It was three big pieces of glass that formed a part of a box, and then the fourth panel was left open so you could actually walk inside of it. Some kids shot our windows out and the bullet actually hit and damaged the piece.” (Continued on page 16)

Aside from a few negative incidents like those, Gehry’s memories of growing up in the house are fond: “We’d be climbing the chain link and we’d be on the roof with squirt guns and running all over the place,” he says. Moreover, Gehry credits the experience and his father with giving him the fortitude to deal with artistic criticism. “He would always just say, ‘Hey, don’t pay attention to it. People are always going to have opinions.’ I think that’s part of why I was able to handle critiques,” says Gehry, who studied illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design and now teaches at the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts. “A lot of friends would get upset when people said negative things, and I’d kind of just roll with it.” From those familiar with Gehry’s style, however, his work tends to garner only praise. That includes “Empires Make Up,” an earlier series of paintings that depict naked women in the World War I battle helmets of enemy nations posing suggestively or making out against backdrops of trench warfare. “It was very provocative,” says gallerist William Turner, who represents Gehry at his Bergamot Station gallery. “I thought it was such an interesting idea because

you see these elements of war become these cool fashions. Someone wears a camo jacket or bomber jacket, or a cool military jacket with epaulettes. … It doesn’t matter what side you’re wearing, it becomes a fashion statement. “I loved that Alejandro put that back in context. You start to see much more interesting, thought-provoking statements and questions.” “I think he’s extremely talented. He has his own style,” adds Venice artist Laddie John Dill. He juried an early ’90s art scholarship competition at Santa Monica High School that Gehry won, and has kept an eye on Gehry ever since. “I’ve watched him turn into this extremely elegant, masculine guy. … I think he would fly like hell in New York.” Turner praises Gehry for blending innate talent with a tireless work ethic. “He has all those qualities in spades, and I’m excited to see what he’s producing next.” EAT ART hosts a reception for Alejandro Gehry from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Monday, Sept. 11, at Wabi Sabi, 1635 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice. A ticketed tour featuring the art studios of Gehry, Monica Perez, Gary Palmer and Barbara Lavery ($125) precedes the reception.

Joel Sartore’s compelling studio portraits of animals like this charismatic veiled chameleon raise awareness about environmental preservation efforts

An Ark on Film Like a 21st-century Noah, Joel Sartore photographs the world’s species to save them from extinction By Bliss Bowen What if an ark was constructed not to rescue creatures from biblical floods but the contemporary oblivion of mass extinction? What if it existed not on water but online, on film, and in galleries? Would it help save them? National Geographic conservation photographer Joel Sartore has staked his career on a hopeful “yes.” His work is “100%” devoted to the Photo Ark, a project for which he is making portraits of animals around the globe — including vulnerable, threatened and critically endangered species — in an attempt to compel viewers to truly see them and recognize their importance in the global ecosystem. “I give a voice to the voiceless,” he says in an email interview. “It’s a huge honor, and a responsibility.” Sartore’s individual portraits of such creatures as the Bornean orangutan, Florida panther, Mexican wolf, Diademed Sifaka, Malayan tapir, and the mandrill are indeed visually compelling

— as well as funny, winsome, and poignant. In March, National Geographic published his book “The Photo Ark: One Man’s Quest to Document the World’s

challenges of far-flung travel and uncooperative (and sometimes dangerous) photo subjects. The first animal aboard his filmic Ark: the naked mole rat.

“I give a voice to the voiceless. It’s a huge honor, and a responsibility.”

National Geographic conservation photographer Joel Sartore Animals.” (The company also published his previous book, 2010’s “Rare: Portraits of America’s Endangered Species,” which PBS recently turned into a series.) The Photo Ark was launched about 11 years ago, during a period when the witty Nebraska native was “grounded” at home caring for his wife and their children while she underwent treatment for breast cancer. (He says she is fine now.) On good days, he visited the Lincoln Children’s Zoo near his home to take photos. The Photo Ark evolved from there, despite the

Since then, by Sartore’s reckoning, the 25-year enterprise has taken him to 40 countries and he’s worked in more than 250 zoos, aquariums and animal rescue centers; it’s “halfway done” with portraits of 6,500 species. Because he needs to travel farther afield to find remaining species, he estimates it will take 15 more years to complete. This Thursday and Friday, Nat Geo Live will host Sartore at The Broad Stage. His presentation will differ from PBS’ “Rare” series in that he will “show new species,

in stills and video, along with sharing updates” on the Photo Ark’s progress. A witty yet sincere advocate of “common sense solutions,” Sartore aims to entertain as well as educate and inspire. THE ARGONAUT: Were you attracted to photography by a desire to document what you saw in the natural world, or have you always connected with the world through a camera? JOEL SARTORE: I was inspired to start photographing animals because so many truly had no voice of their own in terms of conservation — and that’s what continues to drive me on this project. The National Geographic Photo Ark gives animals the chance to be seen and have their stories told, while there’s time to save them and their habitats. You’ve made a lot of amusing and endearing photos of animals, though your purpose is obviously serious. Has (Continued on page 18)

enhanced news coverage of climate change made it easier to persuade people to engage with issues like deforestation and habitat loss? Some of the more obvious ways the Photo Ark has impact is in raising money to save species from extinction, but in the bigger picture we raise public awareness of the extinction crisis. From projections on buildings like St. Peter’s Basilica and the Empire State Building, to publication in National Geographic magazine and on their social media, we reach more than 70 million people per post now. The National Geographic Photo Ark images get people to care about some of the least-known animals on the planet, while there’s still time to save them. Sadly, I have seen species go extinct since starting the Ark. A rabbit, a fish, an insect and the Rabbs’ fringe-limbed tree frog have all gone extinct since I photographed them. It saddens me greatly, but also angers and inspires me to want to give everything I’ve got to this project, and use extinction as a wake-up call: As these species go away, so could we. In a 2013 TED talk you said, “Without your ecotourism dollars, we’re gonna lose the lions in Uganda in about 10

is worth more to locals living than dead, we won’t solve this problem. In other words, “if it pays it stays.” Is there any other story that requires more attention to inform the public of a looming crisis? Species in large parts of Africa and Asia seem the most imperiled to me. This is because of rampant human overpopulation. We’re at 7 billion souls now — on our way to 10 or 11 billion — and already many don’t have enough to eat. I’ve been to plenty of forests now that don’t have much wildlife left because everything bigger than a sparrow has been eaten.

This shy Coquerel’s sifaka lemur is an endangered species native to Madagascar years. Hyenas and other scavengers in about five; that’s it.” Is your prediction still on track? Actually there is hope there still — such as a new program that hires former cattlemen as wildlife guides. You also mentioned lions and farmers in Uganda and wildlife poisoning,

PAGE 18 THE ARGONAUT September 7, 2017

which reminded me of Charlie Hamilton James’ comment last year that “poisoning in Africa is probably the biggest untold story in Africa at the moment; it’s a massive event.” Have you witnessed other examples of that? Yes, cattlemen poison a carcass, which then kills everything that feeds on it for many days. It’s terrible. … Until wildlife

Does witnessing so much species and habitat loss ever undercut your motivation? Where do you turn for fresh inspiration if you get disheartened? That’s a good question, but I don’t get sad. I just get mad, and inspired to try to do all that I can for all of them. For the little creatures especially, the Photo Ark is their only chance to get noticed on a global scale. It’s a great responsibility, and the greatest honor of my life. Nat Geo Live presents “Building the Photo Ark” with Joel Sartore at 7:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday (Sept. 7 and 8) at The Broad Stage, 1310 11th St., Santa Monica. Tickets are $50 to $90.

The Making of ‘a Happy Place’ Tallula’s elevates Mexican comfort food to an art with locally sourced, seasonal ingredients Photo by Rick Poon

Fresh is the name of the game at Tallula’s, where simple is synonymous with upscale

By Angela Matano Tallula’s

118 Entrada Drive, Santa Monica (310) 526-0027 tallulasrestaurant.com With the runaway success of Huckleberry Bakery & Café, Milo & Olive, Rustic Canyon Wine Bar, Cassia, Esters Wine Shop & Bar and Sweet Rose Creamery, husband-and-wife restaurateurs Josh Loeb and Zoe Nathan have really put their stamp on Santa Monica. The couple’s latest epicurean adventure is Tallula’s, a neighborhood Mexican restaurant that opened a few months ago behind Patrick’s Roadhouse, just off PCH. At the very edge of Santa Monica, Tallula’s exemplifies what their Rustic Canyon Group does best: serving elegant comfort food made with fresh, seasonal ingredients. The restaurant sources its organic dairy from California farms and its produce from the Santa Monica Farmers Market, the menu changing with the seasons. “Local produce is everything,” effused Loeb. “All of our places are different, but they will all have the best ingredients. Making things by hand — a lot of imagination, unpretentious. The seasonal. You have to commit to a certain style of

eating. Sometimes it’s going to cost more, but it’s worth it.” Loeb grew up in the Rustic Canyon neighborhood and used to frequent Marix, the Tex-Mex cantina that operated where Tallula’s is now. In pursuit of “the greatest neighborhood restaurant — really good ingredients, but not fancy,” Loeb said — he and Nathan once again joined forces with Chef Jeremy Fox, co-owner and head

in Santa Monica Canyon. Considering last year’s one-two punch closures of Loteria! Grill on the Promenade and Border Grill on 4th Street, it couldn’t have come at a better time. It’s like the universe stepped in to rectify that situation, surely having seen the error of its ways. The interior of the restaurant (helmed by Shelia Buchanan Designs and Oonagh Ryan’s ORA) emanates a groovy, luxe

“The best Mexican food is the kind you eat with your hands and a tortilla. Simple is one of the hardest things to do.” — Restaurateur Josh Loeb

chef of their flagship Rustic Canyon Wine Bar on Wilshire Boulevard. The addition of pastry chef Laurel Almerinda formed a veritable culinary Justice League. By joining forces with different partners for each of their undertakings, Loeb and Nathan ensure that one location’s character remains distinct from its siblings. “All of our restaurants are partnerships because it’s the only way for each place to feel individual and special. Everything has its own identity,” Loeb said. Tallula’s contemporary take on Mexican fare feels right at home

bohemian ’70s vibe. Turquoise figures big, as does macramé. “The idea is to make it homey and comfortable. We wanted it to be fun —Tulum, Mexico colors. A happy place,” said Loeb. Tallula’s manages that and more, with soaring ceilings, handcrafted details like colorful rag rugs, and mosaic tile tables evoking both the nearby ocean and a Mexican beach town without tottering into kitsch. “Hecho con Amor” (Spanish for “Made with Love”) is a bit of a mantra throughout Tallula’s, inscribed on walls, menus and postcards.

Of course, the food is what you really care about. For those looking to drink and snack, there are plenty of options. The chile fundido combines queso panela and Oaxaca cheeses, scarlet runner beans and vaquero beans to make an almost stew-like dip, accompanied by piping hot, puffy tortillas. Eaten at the bar, along with a house margarita or an Avocado-lada (Selvarey Rum, Taylor’s Velvet Falernum, avocado, lime, pineapple, egg white), the queso panela nearly transports you on a daycation to the state of Quintana Roo. “The best Mexican food is the kind you eat with your hands and a tortilla,” said Loeb. “Simple is one of the hardest things to do.” With that in mind, sharing is encouraged at Tallula’s, which jibes with the family-friendly air of the place. The small and large plates alike come begging to be divvied up. The pocket-sized fish tostadas and swordfish tacos layer flavors, with interesting veggies and herbs like shishito peppers and epazote. The hanger steak, with chipotle and pardon peppers,

Husband-wife restaurateurs Josh Loeb and Zoe Nathan shared a homey vision for Tallula’s combines nicely with handmade corn tortillas. Throw in a side of beans and rice — or for those with an eye toward healthy choices, order the quelites: a green mix of braised kale, chicories and chard, joined by salsa ranchera. Dessert is never optional at a Zoe Nathan joint. Her union with Almerinda celebrates classic Mexican favorites, like tres leches cake and pan dulce. The twists in the sweets mirror those in the food, never settling for the obvious. Honey, chamo-

mile and fresh berries create an original tres leches, while the ice cream sundae showcases sweet corn. “Our rule of thumb has always been to mix naughty and nice,” explains Loeb. Tallula’s may prove to be just what the neighborhood needs, a welcoming respite from tourists, traffic and mediocre chain food. Angela Matano has written about food for Los Angeles Magazine and LA Weekly.

The ArgonAuT REAl EstAtE Q&A

Investor smarts: gathering parcel information Real estate investors consider multiple properties before deciding on the best ones to purchase to meet their investment goals.

types of properties, but for gaining a sense of the area. It’s helpful to assign colors to the map based on what types of property the investor is interested in.

What information needs to be gathered and evaluated to get a full picture of each property under consideration? It’s important to be thorough and consistent when assembling material facts, which, by definition, impact each property’s desirability and value.

Next, they map what types of rents each map area commands. The map needs to identify places of interest to investors, including:

Lazy investors rely heavily on figures provided in a property’s marketing package, like its gross rent multiplier (GRM) or capitalization (cap) rate. Smart investors do their own research into a property and gather their own figures. This article describes what information is required and how to find it. Step 1) Map the area Consider an investor interested in purchasing property in a specific neighborhood or region. The investor first needs to gain a full understanding of the area. The investor gathers zoning maps from the local planning department. While there, they can also get information on compliance, including: • environmental or California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) requirements; • potential historic preservation requirements; • any architectural requirements; and • inspection rules. The investor locates vacant parcels and teardowns, important not just for investors interested in these

• amenities like: shopping, parks, centers of culture, schools, irports, rail lines, police, fire stations and hospitals. Step 2) Chart every property The investor creates a list of all properties in the area. This will give a picture of the inventory available and what properties are in high demand. It’s not necessary to include information on every single property in the area, but knowledge about the area’s mix and placement of single family residences (SFRs), multi-family units, retail units, offices and other commercial structures is essential. Now, the investor needs to make a list or spreadsheet of what data they will need to collect on each property they want to consider for investment. It’s important to collect the same type of data on each property, as a consistent vetting will produce a more thorough picture of each potential investment rather than a haphazard sketch which only includes whatever information is readily available. The investor’s checklist includes each parcel’s: • age; size; improvement status; property classification; hazards; title profile; rents; mix of units; parking; amenities; sales history; and

PAGE 28 At Home – THE ARGONAUT’s Real Estate Section September 7, 2017

The investor may collect visuals of each property, including maps and pictures. At the very least, a Google Map or Google Street View image ought to be included in each description. Step 3) Identify adverse conditions The seller will provide the necessary property disclosures, but the investor has to perform their own due diligence on the property. Even when they are not intentionally withholding known conditions, owners cannot always be relied on to provide the most complete information. The prudent investor researches any adverse conditions identified in the property disclosure or observed, including: • obsolescence; deterioration; easements; encroachments; environmental hazards; and special hazard areas, such as Federal Emergency Management Area (FEMA) flood or fire areas. These adverse conditions may create additional expenses on top of the typical operating expenses, which are more easily accounted for than, say, the potential for floods. It’s important to consider these conditions when setting a value for the property. Some information may be difficult or impossible to obtain without the current owner’s cooperation. The investor can submit a letter of intent (LOI) to the owner requesting more information. The LOI is not an offer to purchase, but may be the first step in negotiations. An appropriate price for the property cannot be known until the potential buyer gathers information on all material facts.

Step 4) Make a general description Once facts are gathered, the investor can prepare a general description for each property. Each general description will include the property’s location. Necessary locational data includes the: • property address; • assessor’s parcel number, found on the county tax assessor’s website; • address of the property’s vested owners, principal investors, the entity’s manager and others; • neighborhood name; census tract; and parcel dimensions. The general description will also include specific information about the property, including the: • number of units or spaces; number of stories; design or style of building; • construction status and type; roofing material; • heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) status; electric meter, if available; • ceiling height; sprinklers; bays; and rent range. All of this information is needed to estimate and compare the most likely ROI for each property. The next step? Calculating figures like an acceptable cap rate for this property and likely tax deductions. ThIS week’S queSTIon waS anSwered by

Autumn of the Auteur

The Top 10 most-anticipated films of this fall By Daniel Barnes In most years September marks the beginning of awards season, when major film festivals roll out the top contenders for Oscar glory. But this year it seems quite possible that the Best Picture race began and ended with Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk,” a film that sits at the ideal nexus of commercial success, critical acclaim and ostensible importance. Even if that’s the case, at least we’ve also shut the door on “The Emoji Movie” idiocy of summer to enter the auteur-driven pleasures of autumn, where old favorites like Richard Linklater and Todd Haynes commingle with young upstarts like Sean Baker and Yorgos Lanthimos. Keep your eye out for these 10 very promising films to make their way to a theater near you.

Oct. 16 - Oct.29 Over 50 productions by more than 100 theater artists take over the Santa Monica Playhouse’s three performance spaces for two weeks. 1211 4th St., Santa Monica. Free. (310) 3949779, ext. 2; santamonicaplayhouse.com

“Trial by Jury: Deportation” @ The Broad Stage

Wonderstruck (Oct. 20)

When the rigid perfectionist Martin Scorsese wanted to warm up and make his first film about children, he turned to Brian Selznick’s “Hugo” for source material. And now that the rigid perfectionist Todd Haynes (“Carol”) is ready to do the same, back we go to Selznick, who adapts his own book about a generations-spanning mystery.

If you told me that my list of the most anticipated films of the fall would include a spiritual sequel to “The Last Detail” starring Bryan Cranston as ‘Badass’ Buddinsky and Steve Carell as Larry Meadows (Jack Nicholson and Randy Quaid, respectively, in Hal Ashby’s 1973 classic), I would have scoffed. But director Richard Linklater makes one do strange things.

After reinventing the vampire movie with 2008’s “Let the Right One In,” Swedish filmmaker Tomas Alfredson seemed destined for greatness but made only one more film (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” in 2011) before falling off the face of the Earth. Now he returns to his roots with this snowy thriller, starring Michael Fassbender as a detective investigating a disappearance.

Thor: Ragnorok (Nov. 3)

One of my most memorable movie experiences of 2014 was watching Ruben Ostlund’s “Force Majeure” with a full house at the Mill Valley Film Festival. Two hours of squirmy emotional emasculation went by before anyone in the theater took a breath. “The Square” is Ostlund’s Palme d’Or-winning follow-up film, and that’s all I need to know to get excited.

singularly impudent sadism of Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos made for an effortless Americanization in last year’s “The Lobster.” More confusing animal imagery comes our way with “The Killing of a Sacred Deer,” a revenge story about a surgeon (Colin Farrell), his wife (Nicole Kidman) and a disturbed young man who they befriend.

Caleb Landry Jones show up in his candy-colored follow-up about mischievous children.

Mother! (Sept. 15)

Jennifer Lawrence’s last two awardsseason vehicles (the joyless “Joy” and the passable “Passengers”) were drippy duds, but the pitilessness and severity of Darren Aronofsky might be the cure. Back in “Black Swan” psychological horror mode after dabbling in Biblical epics with “Noah,” Aronofsky wrote and directed this story of a woman whose domestic life gets unsettled by unexpected house guests.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (Nov. 10)

The first film from English writerdirector Martin McDonagh since 2012’s ridiculously underrated “Seven Psychopaths” and only the second since his 2008 debut “In Bruges,” “Three Billboards” is a bloody, hyper-literate, Midwestern crime comedy about idiot cops and philosophical lawbreakers. And if that’s not Coen Brothers-esque enough for you, the film also stars Frances McDormand as a grieving mother battling with the local police department.

Coco (Nov. 22)

The Florida Project (Oct. 10) Sean Baker’s “Tangerine” was one of the left-field surprises of 2015, an energetic and empathetic look at transsexual prostitutes on the streets of Los Angeles. It was Baker’s fifth feature film, but marked a commercial breakthrough for the low-budget filmmaker; now familiar faces like Willem Dafoe and

Having spent the last decade arguing that the awfulness of the Marvel Cinematic Universe posed a legitimate threat to national security, I’m as shocked as anyone else that this third “Thor” movie made my list. But now that “Spider-Man: Homecoming” has liberated the draggy franchise by embracing comedy over apocalyptic carnage, the table is perfectly set for “What We Do in the Shadows” director Taika Waititi.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer (Nov. 3)

Some foreign-born directors are never able to find their footing in English-language efforts, but something about the

Pixar’s first non-white human protagonist is Miguel, a Mexican boy with a strange family history who travels with his guitar to the land of the dead. That sounds a lot like the 2014 animated feature “The Book of Life,” which also concerned a Mexican guitarist who travels through the spirit world. But then “A Bug’s Life” sounded a lot like “Antz,” too. By now, I think Pixar has earned the benefit of the doubt. Daniel Barnes is the chief film critic for Sacramento News & Review.

Genius Loci Jacob Jonas captures the creative spirit of Santa Monica and Venice through dance photography

Growing up in Santa Monica, I always had a creative itch. In my early teens I was eager to explore my independence and passions, so throughout summer and on weekends during the school year I would skate through Santa Monica along the boardwalk to Venice. This route was always an escape and a breath of fresh air. It became a huge part of my identity. It was here that I found dance by joining the Calypso Tumblers, a band of street performers. As a photographer and choreographer, I am always looking to capture these same feelings in my work. The backdrops of the ocean, the sunlight and the urban architecture of Santa Monica and Venice give great inspiration. I enjoy taking photographs of dancers with different backgrounds in these locations to continue exploring my city, highlighting my favorite components and sharing the images on Instagram for people to experience globally. It is part of my mission to make dance a more recognizable and valued art form in society. So I also started an initiative called #CamerasandDancers, an event that encourages collaboration through the mediums of dance and photography. To date, 30 meetups have been organized around the world with social influencers, dance companies, museums, tourism boards and cultural institutions. These photos reach millions of followers, helping to keep dance relevant and connected to a younger demographic.  I never expected to get into dance photography, but it has allowed me to remain continuously creative while exploring my favorite elements of this city and showcasing my hometown for all the world to see.

1 I am fascinated by finding intersections of dance and architecture, and so I thought it would be a great juxtaposition to put a ballet dancer in a skate park. This photo features Julia Cinquemani, former principal dancer with Los Angeles Ballet.

This photo features Ian Robinson of Batsheva Dance Company. Ian is a very raw artist. Most times when shooting dancers, I find one pose. With Ian, he just improvised along the backside of the Venice Handball Courts. 2

Instagram has been a powerful platform for me to connect with creatives. Photographed here is a current dancer with my company, Joy Brown, who originally reached out to me through Instagram to take photos. This is from our first session in front of the Ball-Nogues Studio public art sculpture “Cradle” on Santa Monica’s Fourth Street. 3

I love finding clean backgrounds to shoot in, so the Venice Handball Courts are a frequent go-to location. This image features my great friends and frequent collaborators Lamonte Goode and Rauf Yasit. I always have a blast working with them, as the process to find the right position is truly a collaborative effort. 7

Cloudy days are rare in Santa Monica, so you have to take advantage of them. I took this photo of my girlfriend, Jill Wilson, early in the morning on Santa Monica Beach. 8

— Amanda Gorman, “We the People” songwriter. Discovering poetry and creative writing helped her overcome a speech impediment that inhibited her ability to communicate: “I realized my speech impediment didn’t matter on the page; what really mattered was my inner voice, not my outer voice. … “I am invested in the idea of poetry being inclusive and democratic — meaning that poetry is for the people and of the people and by the people. It’s something that’s alive. It’s something that’s ever changing and evolutionary, rather than something that’s stoic and rigid. As we continue to break the boundaries of what’s considered traditional poetry or prestigious poetry, we’re beginning to see phenomenal writers come to the forefront, whether in terms of their identity in being a voice that is rarely heard in those types of worlds, or the style of writing really reflecting some type of background that we

adviser and fellow, Gorman spent her summer visiting literary spaces in Boston, Chicago, Hawaii, Los Angeles and Washington D.C. in an effort to “expand the reach of the laureate program nationally.” While traveling she also worked on a VR exhibit — one of the “new and cutting-edge types of storytelling” exciting her interest — and expanded her personal and artistic understanding of the United States. “The U.S. is so vast, not just in terms of its land mass but in terms of the different cultures,” says Gorman, who still calls an LAX-adjacent neighborhood home. “I’m so grateful because the L.A. Youth Poet Laureate position deeply prepared me for this role. Los Angeles is such a wide and diverse city; you can find dozens of different cultures on the same street. It’s that fantastic. So I already knew what it was like to try to bridge different cultures in poetry.”

beautiful, timeless — stays the same. Whether you’re reading Shakespeare or Maya Angelou, there’s something there that ties them together, even if they’re presented differently.” Speaking to this writer in 2015, then-L.A. Poet Laureate Luis Rodriguez predicted that we would hear more from Gorman: “She seems like a powerful voice, especially for young people.” Indeed. She’s currently preparing to deliver an original poem at the inaugural reading by new U.S. Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith at the Library of Congress. “I’m really excited to be part of that,” she says, “because it sets this historical precedent that young people can occupy these prestigious spaces, and we deserve to be there and we deserve to have our voices heard.” Along with her stirring writing, Gorman’s work with her One Pen (Continued on page 39)

Shifting approaches to language are causing widespread changes in approach to poetry, but Gorman does not believe that will change people’s ability to communicate through verse. “Not to get too political here, but I think of poetry or the poetry community as this nice little country that we like to call home, and just because different people with different languages come in, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the country doesn’t stand for the same exact values. Different voices, languages and cultures can change the expression of poetry, can change its appearance, but the essence of poetry — what makes it brilliant,

By Bliss Bowen When last The Argonaut spoke with her — in 2015, when she was a precociously articulate and insightful 17-year-old junior at New Roads High School in Santa Monica who didn’t use social media — Amanda Gorman was an avid reader and writer enjoying her tenure as Los Angeles’ first youth poet laureate. That was the year she published her first book of poetry, “The One for Whom Food is Not Enough.” This past April, Gorman was named the country’s first-ever National Youth Poet Laureate.

Che Guevara keeps watch from a Havana wall in “Embargo” “Embargo” explores the lingering feud between Washington and Havana How can adversaries relearn trust when their pasts are so disastrously intertwined? This is the central question in director Jeri Rice’s “Embargo,” a compelling journey through the often-contentious relationship between the U.S. and Cuba. Rice (who wrote, directed and produced the film) set out to understand why and how our country’s embargo against Cuba has endured for so long after she had a chance encounter with Fidel Castro in 2002. “I tried to create a utopia and I did not succeed,” Rice recounts the aged revolutionary revealing to her, a state-

ment that ignited the filmmaker’s fascination and a 14-year long project. The documentary seeks to illuminate hidden histories of the Cold War, including Richard Nixon’s relationship with Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista and his links to the failed Bay of Pigs invasion, while also warning of “a new Cold War” lurking in the shadows. Bringing together new perspectives on both countries’ histories, “Embargo” joins the conversation just as the future of Cuba is fraught with new uncertainty. The Trump administration’s icy attitude towards the island nation will begin rolling back diplomatic progress in the Obama years with new travel and business restrictions taking effect Sept. 15.

PAGE 38 THE ARGONAUT September 7, 2017

Rice’s vision came to be with help from a tight-knit team of Venice-based filmmakers and creatives. Executive producer Suzanne Thompson, associate producer Sofia Balme, co-producer and cinematographer Mark Sali, graphic designer Taylor Barnes and editor Alexis Chavez were each integral to making “Embargo” a reality. — Kelby Vera “Embargo” opens at 7:10 p.m. Friday, Sept. 8, at the Laemmle Monica Film Center (1332 2nd St., Santa Monica), followed by Jeri Rice in conversation with writer Russ Baker.

P o e t r y Celebrating Her Voice (Continued from page 37) One Page nonprofit was an integral factor in her selection as National Youth Poet Laureate. Asked how integral community activism is to her creative self-expression, Gorman grows notably enthusiastic. “I always say that my relation to myself as a writer is completely intersectional with my relationship to myself as an advocate. As a poet I want to bring to the forefront stories and narratives that have gone untold or unheard. For me, a great way to begin that is through community activism — being on the ground, working with local leaders to effect some type of positive change. I always tell myself, I don’t want to just do right, I also want to write.” Amanda Gorman will open the inaugural reading by 22nd Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith at the Library Of Congress at 7 p.m. EST (4 p.m. locally) on Wednesday, Sept. 13; the event will be live-streamed at youtube.com/LibraryOfCongress.
