Most S.F.-Obsessed Artist 

Wendy MacNaughton

If San Francisco is full of microclimates, it's also full of microcultures. These are the cultures that Wendy MacNaughton inhabits, like the area around Sixth and Mission streets, whose daily scenes of transience and permanence come alive in MacNaughton's drawings and words.It's the unique combination of text and illustration, and the utter humanism that MacNaughton conveys in her reporting, that makes her work so compelling. MacNaughton's 2014 book,Meanwhile in San Francisco: The City in Its Own Words, is required reading for anyone new to the city."I'm a draw-er who writes," she recently toldSF Weekly. In other words, MacNaughton covers San Francisco from all angles, giving people views of the city that seem entirely new.
