Designer "Breaks Up" With Los Angeles Before Moving On... To New York (VIDEO)

Breaking up is never easy, as evidenced by such extreme measures as the Museum of Broken Relationships and by the billboards now gracing the streets of Los Angeles. Designed by former LA-based designer Jon Jackson in advance of his move to New York, Angelenos have been broken up with... and publicly. The billboard series feature such common 'break up' phrases as "it's not you LA, it's me" and "LA, I think we should see other cities." Check out an interview with the designer below and if you find yourself in the greater Los Angeles area between now and mid-January, you can see them in person.
