Brian Taylor aka Candykiller has a new print out from the amazing Letter Pressed. This is the first print in a yearlong series that will be coming from Brian and LP. I love the way that Brian Taylor draws, I'm also a huge fan of Tex Avery, so it wasn't too hard to reel me in. This print is 8x10 2 color letter press, signed and numbered from an edition of 90. There isn't many left at all, there will be more prints from Brian, but that's no reason to wait on this one.

This print is made by Electric Works, previously Trillium Press. Printed on Heavy Stock Rives BFK paper. 14×27 inches. Deckled edges. All signed and numbered by the artist. This is a pre-sale, and the print is limited to only 20, so it will go pretty fast.

Paul Chatem "Hostile Takeover"

I first saw the work of Paul Chatem at the Shooting Gallery in SF, I was instantly hooked. Each painting is just a piece in a larger story, and once you see the works together, you realize he has turned the gallery walls into pages. I love how energetic and brushy his work is, but at the same time how intricate and exquisite the linework is. I'm still baffled as to how he gets the lines so perfect. This specific print is from his 33 Knots show, it's signed and numbered, and it looks amazing.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
