Yoko d'Holbachie "KISHIBOJIN"

An up and coming illustrator from Japan, Yoko has a seriously unique and intense style. Her work is getting more and more popular in America, she has the cover image of the latest Hi-Fructose magazine and is also in the "Bitters and Sweets" show by Hi-Fuctose and Gallery 1988. Her work is very detailed, colorful and filled with great imagery. Multiple eyes, alien foliage and dynamite looking creatures. This is the type of work that should be in dorm rooms across the country, facilitating your psychedelic experiences. This print is on German etching paper, and is limited to 100.

Nicoletta Ceccoli "Catgirl"

An award winning illustrator from Italy, Nicoletta is now showing her fine art in North America. Her first show is at the Magic Pony in Canada. She paints in acrylic, and by the looks of it controls the medium with great skill, bringing her works to the point of having that amazing surreal quality much like Marion Peck and Mark Rydens work. This print is signed and numbered, and limited to 50. This is a great chance to grab a print from an artist that now doubt will become very popular soon.

Jason Goad "P4 and SC"

An illustrator and poster artist, Jason's work can be seen on posters for The Cult, Gorillaz, Face to Face and many others. He has a great style and it shows in this set. Both prints are 5 color screenprints featuring a male and female "anatomically" correct robot. They are 12" square and limited to 50. I really dig the theme of these prints, it would take a few looks for people to notice what's going on, and I'm sure they would look amazing framed up together.

Tom Bagshaw "Tiki Spirit"

You wouldn't know it by looking at his work, but Tom Bagshaw is a digital artist. He has a great way of making his works look like they were done originally in oils. Looks like he has devloped a great set of techniques that allow him to make fine art pieces, and not have to worry about buying new paints, and cleaning up. The imagery of course is great as well, a pinup model surrounded by ghosts, a puffer fish, and what looks like a stylized Robby the Robot from Forbidden Planet. You can choose multiple sizes and frames for this print.

Lithium Picnic "Hello Hello"

Phillip Warner is the artist behind Lithium Picnic. His work is most often associated with the photos he took for the SuicideGirls website, but its his personal work that is far more exciting. Most of his work is filled with popular alternative models, most notably Apnea. His photography is quite striking, and his knowledge of lighting is something I wish I had. Buying one of these prints will also go to help him with his lawsuit against the aforementioned alternative model site.

  • 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.'"
