Glenn Barr "Prehistoric Fate"


If you have been reading these articles for a while, you have no doubt heard how hooked on Glenn Barr's work I am. I'm making sure I stay a fan and not an obsessed creepy fan. How can you not like paintings from a guy who worked on Ren & Stimpy and gives us images of Betty and Wilma freaking out while Godzilla does what he does best. I love the colors in this piece, the updated figures that he gave to these characters. This print is amazing, and you can choose between paper and canvas.

Kent Williams "Dance With Me"


He has had his work shown at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, he worked on the graphic novel for "The Fountain" and has taught at a variety of schools. His work is very exciting and never ceases to amaze me. He mainly does figurative work like the print here, but when you look close there is so much texture and energy. If you really get used to his art, I'm sure you can think up a few artists who are inspired by both his style of painting and color schemes. This print is signed and numbered in an edition of 20.

Derek Hess "Sarah SPF 25"


This Cleveland-based artist has worked on a huge amount of band posters, has a line of clothing and has a style that is truly his own. He continually puts out amazing work. I always look forward to see what he comes up with next. This print is a three-color serigraph and is from his "Tan Lines" series, and those tans lines really pop out at you. It's from a limited edition of 200 and is a generous 20" x30".

Tristan Henry-Wilson "Courtney"


An illustrator hailing from England, Tristan Henry-Wilson has done work for a variety of magazines and bands.I read that one his professors was Shawn Barber and you can see this in his work, but he definitely has his own powerful style. You can see in the image how controlled he is with the paint, but at the same time it is not rendered to death. The color scheme is great and fits the expression on her face perfect.

Lizz Lopez "New Shoes"


You might have seen Lizz's work on an episode of L.A. Ink. She came in to get tattooed and showed some of her paintings as well. I'm really glad she did, I love her work. I think she is going to school for Nursing and paints when she has time. Luckily she was able to find some time to get some prints ready. This one is my favorite, I dig the colors she used, her expression and the dark feel that it has. You can get this one either on paper or canvas.

  • 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.'"
