Before the Hyenas
The wall full of Hyenas wearing oil company bling was previously a Seventh Letter wall covered in a lot of complex, almost dizzying, writing.
These pictures are from September 2007 on Santa Monica near Heliotrope. I checked back several times to see if maybe there might be a time with no cars parked in front of it, but being a laundry parking lot, it always had cars - and vans.
It was difficult to get any half decent shots of the entire wall, so it's mostly just close ups of the individual writers' work, which is why these didn't get posted before now. More after the jump.
