i’m jealous of jon jackson

Nobody said breaking up was easy… especially with a city. Jon Jackson is leaving LA behind for NYC, but instead of being a jerk and dumping LA on a post-it, he decided to put up a series of gorgeous text-based art pieces, titled Adiós LA, on a bunch of really big billboards all over town. So, if you happen to be one of those people who likes eavesdropping on couples fighting in restaurants {what? I’ve never done it}, then until January 15th you can drive around LA and be a witness to this break-up. Poor LA… maybe we should set her up with someone?

    Epic. I myself have broken up with a couple cities in my lifetime. Things never got ugly, but there was a while there when we just weren’t speaking. Love this JC! Thanks for posting.

    Ah yes, it’s always tough. I hope you’re all still friends.

    Sadly, those are my initials. Feels like a consortium of ex-boyfriend paying homage to our history. A tad freaky, not gonna lie!

    hilarious!… well, only if you’ve never been broken up with this way, otherwise it’s incredibly painful and sad! please tell me that none of your exes ever used this method of moving on!? ; )
