This week I got to visit with artists Noel Hennessey and Thomas Renaud of LGS Studio in Glassel Park, CA.
Thomas Renaud at left and Noel Hennessey of LGS studio. Behind them are pieces from their Tephra, Studded, Ridge and Ritual collections.
Before starting LGS Studio, Noel and Thomas had been friends for many years and have always supported each other in their lives and creative endeavors. Their work is remarkably unique, and comes out of their own inspirations and musings ( The Flintstones, planet Mars, Greek Sparton Weaponry etc. ).
Thomas and Noel have 15 years of combined experience working in Photography, painting and advertising that has informed their work, and helped to create a clearly articulated brand. No doubt the there could also be a Brutalist inspiration happening here as well?

I took my daughter and some friends to the Climate Strike in Downtown LA earlier this month.
Organized by Swedish Climate activist Greta Thunberg , the Climate Strike is a national movement that’s taking place every Friday where youth activists stay home from school to protest the abhorrent Climate Denial of our President and the lack of action our local government is taking to combat the Climate Crisis.
Watch my video below to see some images from the march and to hear a clip of Greta Thunberg’s inspiring speech.
