Who doesn’t love celebrity street art?!?!? Los Angeles must looooooooooove it!

As T$F pondered this list we noticed two super famous people that we felt became neglected in the world of L.A. street art.
JAKE GYLLENHAAL & KATIE HOLMES
WAKE UP!!! You would be a fool to over look Jake’s 2005 Oscar-nominated performance in Brokeback Mountain, and must T$F remind you that Katie Holmes was the most integral part of Dawson’s Creek?!?!
Rather than wait around, we filled the gap and proudly present to you two very important celebrities. (drum roll please)
