... Who wouldn't want their own personal AT-AT? ...

--Josh, Creep Machine


1. Tara McPherson "Isis"

Not only does she make killer rock posters, but she's also worked with DC Comics and has some fine art shows coming up soon. She has an amazing style, very clean with nice vivid colors. This print sells out every time it shows up, it’s a great poster, even if you don't like the band. I take it that's a snake she's wresting with, either way her expression really makes this poster pop. Only 3 are left from this site, and the price continues to rise on other sites. Link to Diesel Fuel Prints.


2. Sylvia Ji "LoveStruck"

Sylvia Ji is a painter born in San Francisco, she currently has a show going on at the White Walls gallery. She really does have an amazing painting style. I love the way she does faces. She has had shows with Joshua Petker, Amy Sol Audrey Kawasaki and many others. I don't see her prints pop up on many sites, she doesn't release too many of them really. This is a great print that really showcases her style of portrait painting. Link to the Art


3. Attaboy "The Brine Queen"

Not only is he an amazing artist, Attaboy along with Annie Owens also publishes the great art magazine Hi Fructose. This print is released by Pressure Printing, so it's printed with a hand cranked press on Rives BFK paper. I think it's kind of nice every once in a while to have a print made this way, as opposed to being spit out by a printer. I also think this style of printing really fits well with Attaboy's style of art. This is an edition of 50. Link to Pressure Printing.


4. Casey Weldon "AT-AT the Playground"

I found this print while browsing Robot Walrus (great site) and I was hooked instantly. This isn't a very big print at 11x14 inches, but one look from your Star Wars lovin' buddies will boost your cred to a new level. Who wouldn't want they’re own personal AT-AT? If you look in the background on the left side, you'll see another great addition. Perfect print from a great artist. Link to Casey Weldon's Site.


5. Ben Tour "Zora"

Ben is from Vancouver, BC Canada. He has a very explosive looking style, each painting being made by drawing and then using all sorts of inks and paints until he brings it to the point you see now. I really like his style, it fits well along the Stella Im Hultberg, Sylvia Ji and Joshua Petker works but looks very energetic. Just looking at this piece really makes me thing that the artist had a blast making it. This is from an edition of 150 and I imagine that it won't last long. Link to Blkmrkt Gallery.

  • 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.'"
