About Face

pity the fool!

Barney. Clifford the Big Red Dog. Andy Kaufman. You and your progeny have different ideas about what makes a colorful character.

For personality the whole fam can appreciate, hang a Lumalum celebrity portrait in your squirt’s room.

Culver City artist and mom of three Seana Corcoran uses bold colors, simple lines, and a sense of humor to create art that appeals across generations. Future Trekkies will adore Spock. What baby doesn’t love Sonny and Cher? Coming soon: Willie Nelson and Gandhi.

Besides looking stylish, the portraits are a great way to introduce your kids to some of your favorite icons.

Because you pity the fool who didn’t grow up with Mr. T.

Available at Dragonfly DuLou, 2066 Hillhurst Avenue, between Ambrose Avenue and Price Street (323-665-8448 or dragonflydulou.com). To see styles, go to lumalum.com.
