news — 10/18

by Nate

mailed out a ton of zines over the past couple weeks, and handed a ton out in SF!  get in touch if you don’t have your copy of issue #2 yet.
working on a couple of short stories pretty hard — hopefully finished/edited in another week or so. stoked for these new ones.


new work by j. at tenderloin is the night , including a few of the original photos from cowan’s gap issue #2! check out the non-photocopied versions here.

new drawing series from sammy owen.  check out the whole series (my favorite is “Show…”) at his website!


rachel duffy just launched a new website for her photography!


photo from frickety fresh — my new favorite sf street art blog.


saw not one but two awesome art shows recently at needles and pens!

1. morph traits — daniel higgs and kyle ranson .

above photo from the raddest art blog, my love for you is a stampede of horses.  full photoset here — check it out!

2. knock knock — group show curated by KRETS.

more photos at my love for you blog!

i was especially stoked for this show because it had photos from phil elverum, one of my favorite musicians (the microphones, mount eerie) who is also a super sick photographer.  yee!


richard colman and ryan travis christian at guerrero gallery was mindblowing.  maybe my single favorite show of the year.

colman built this enormous stage structure out of intricately handpainted panels.  it was outrageously huge and you could go stand on it, and then death cheetah performed a musical set on the stage.  nuts town.


also caught mark warren jacques at gallery hijinks !

we loved his free life center show earlier this year at needles and pens, and super dug his current show as well! the artist also has a great website showcasing his work here.


read a bunch of excerpts from le morte d’arthur . gnar!

currently reading short story collections by isaac bashevis singer and haruki murakami.

and of course the new book collecting the first four issues of one of my favorite zines, Scam by erick lyle !
