It’s not you LA, it’s me

I know I have been missing in action, but life catches up with you. Check this project at

Jon Jackson, a designer who has lived in Los Angeles for years, recently got a job offer in New York. After deciding to make the move, Jackson said goodbye to the city in the only way he knew best, through art.

Jackson erected a series of “breakup” billboards all over the city the read messages such as “It’s not you LA, it’s me” and “I think we need to see other cities”. These billboards are placed on popular streets all over LA, including West Hollywood and Venice Blvd.

Although the breakup looks pretty official, LA is secretly pleading he will come to his senses and run back with open arms.

Over the next few months (and years) I will fix, add to and fidget with this site to make it perfect for me. I enjoyed creating this blog and website and I will continue with them after this class. For now, it’s time for a little break. Happy holidays!
