2009 LA MYTH Art Show "Burrito Perfecto"

This is one of two 11x14 acrylic on canvas paintings for the 2009 LA MYTH Art Show (curated by Dee Chavez and Aaron Clark). The opening reception is Feb 7, 2009 at Meltdown Comics 7522 Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90046.


The theme of the show is LA myths. And as everyone living here knows, there is a rumored "perfect burrito" in this cursed city. A burrito so perfect, that it would immediately kill you from its glorious taste.

To this day, I have never found such perfection. The journey continues...

As long as that burrito just has carne asada, guac, and pico de gallo and none of that B.S. with the rice and beans and lettuce, it's "Burrito Perfecto" to me!!! Any awesome burritos you can recommend in San Diego (Besides the ---berto places)? I'm making a trip down there soon!
