|Chicken Boy, The Statue of Liberty of Los Angeles|
Did you read it? See? He really is an L.A. icon!
Thank you, Amy Inouye for rescuing The Boy. Seriously, you should be given a Los Angeles Preservation Award for Roadside Attractions. Larry and I have a strong fondness for The Boy. His body and his bucket resided in our backyard for a number of years before his resurrection to Figueroa Boulevard (aka Route 66), atop Future Studio in historic Highland Park.
On with the show! There were so many wonderful depictions of CB, that I simply could not post them all here. You must call Future Studio and see this show! Here are a few pieces:

....AND, there were pies, pizza and sweet, to celebrate upcoming National Pi-Day in Los Angeles! We saw lots of friends, ate some pie, shopped in the Chicken Boy store and generally had a wonderful evening. I'm inspired now to make my own Chicken Boy art!
