We plan on having a regular feature on the show we're calling Weird L.A. There is a lot of weirdness here... and that's a good thing. We're going to meet unusual characters and go to strange places.

First up, artist Clare Graham's studio in Highland Park -- a huge, former roller rink. Clare used to be a corporate guy at Disney. He's retired and now spends his days indulging in his passion for collecting things -- things most people throw away - and turning them into art.

You can check out the Flickr slide show of Clare Graham's studio, with photos taken by our intern Jacob Margolis.
