If you missed the Lowriting book signing event at Mi Vida Boutique in Los Angeles last month, you can check out some dynamite pictures from the event here. These pictures (with the exception of one) were taken by Emilio Medina of muyCreative. muyCreative is also responsible for the Lowriting book cover design.
The event saw standing room only with people lined up out the door. There were lowrider cars lined up and down the boulevard and even Hollywood came out to pay homage to Lowriting with people like Richard Yniguez, Alvaro Rodriguez, Danny De La Paz and Daniel Villarreal. And of course, Luis J. Rodriguez, the legend himself, read his piece from the book.
As an independent publisher, this event was a dream come true. Much thanks to Noelle Reyes for hosting us at her beautiful shop. Please visit her shop and help support her business! This was truly a grassroots event and the Highland Park community and greater Los Angeles area came out to support this book. I was both humbled and honored.
This is what indie publishing is all about and I’m proud to provide books that inspire these kinds of things. This was something you would never see at Barnes & Noble or some snooty upscale bookstore and you can take that to the bank!
Here’s to many more indie events and here’s to independent publishing, artists, writers, photographers, actors and businesses!
