Nic George, illustrator and friend of The Collective Quarterly, debuts his new children's book in Ojai, California, on Saturday.
Ojai is, quite simply, a complicated town. On the surface, it’s an idyllic hamlet splattered with sunshine, with a quaint main drag hemmed in by mountains. The sunset burnishes the valley walls in the evenings, famous to locals and visitors as the “Pink Moment.”
Teeming with wildlife, history, and beautiful, road-less landscapes, the Channel Islands truly offer a glimpse into the past, of a southern California that existed prior to the concrete, freeways and sprawling development of the mainland that looms only miles away.
