Rosamunde's Badass Burger
Tuesday, 22 March 2011 14:32

San Francisco people, Rosamunde, the sausage spot next to the Toronado in the Lower Hate, does grilled burgers on Tuesdays for lunch. If you eat meat, get there and try it. $6, it's huge, and it does taste like everyone says-- very very f*in' amazing and possibly the best in town.

Rosamunde's Tuesday burger is worth the 30 min wait. Plus there are beers next door at the Toronado.

Ran into Matt D from DLX at lunch time, and he insisted I go for it. It'll put you into a meat coma for sure, but the massive patty of quality goodness and the grilled onions are perfectly cooked. Long wait but so worth it.

Josh Keyes Print
Tuesday, 22 March 2011 10:59

Josh Keyes print now available at Tiny Showcase. Unsigned, 8"x10", but for $30, that's a great deal, and the image is yet another beautiful Keyes creation with $10 dollars from each print sold will be donated to Doctors Without Borders.

Josh is next up @FFDG on April 7th. Details on that soon... Yes, the preview list is already full.

R/GA Artist Talks
Tuesday, 22 March 2011 10:41

R/GA (a full-service interactive, digital advertising agency) recently opened a San Francisco office. They already have offices across the globe in NYC, London, Singapore, Chicago, and São Paulo... and to kick off the new-ish office and the coming of summer, they've begun the Creative Connect Spring Series which "is about reaching out to San Francisco creatives across all disciplines to share their work and insights with the local creative community. Creative Connect is about getting an architect and a multi-media artist, a curator and a chef, a dancer and a street artist in the same room to see what happens".

R/GA is a multi-disciplinary agency that understands the benefit of cross-breeding creatives. The Creative Connect spring lecture series is open to the public and intended to provide space for San Francisco creative professionals to speak, perform or display groundbreaking work and ideas. Our hope is to inspire great work in our office and the greater community.

Their first speaker, Japanese calligrapher Aoi Yamaguchi, kicks it all off this Friday with a live large-scale calligraphy performance at 4:30. Wine and cheese will be served and to RSVP, email: rgacreativeconnect@rga.com

This guy, John Trippe, will be giving some sort of hour long presentation on Friday, June 10th at 4:30. Beer shall be provided and it should be... well, hopefully interesting. More of a performance than talk most likely. We'll see.

Save KUSF in NY Times
Monday, 21 March 2011 13:47

Battle Rages Over a College Radio Station’s Sale <-- In mid-January, the University of San Francisco abruptly took KUSF off the air. In announcing the sale of the station — which for 34 years beamed cutting-edge rock, public affairs and other programming to a diverse audience — the university said KUSF would not be ending, but merely changing to an online-only format with an enhanced student presence. -Keep reading

Lunar Lunar Full Moon
Saturday, 19 March 2011 15:08

LUNAR MISSION TONIGHT <-- the evening of the full moon, eight galleries in the Southeast corner of the Mission will come together to recognize the importance of art, community, and the public they serve. Eleanor Harwood Gallery, Galeria de la Raza, Gallery Hijinks, Guerrero Gallery, Kadist Art Foundation, Southern Exposure, Steven Wolf Fine Arts, and Triple Base join forces to present an evening of concurrent programming, from live performance to sipping sessions, spoken word to street projections.

And no, San Francisco is NOT going to have an earthquake in the next couple of days. How do I know? God told me so. Stop listening to earthquacks.

Gentlemen's Club
Friday, 18 March 2011 10:14

Ever Gold Gallery here in SF's Tenderloin Dist. is in the middle of their March program "Gentlemen's Club" - a whole bunch of diverse and distinctive array of speakers, artists, performers, thinkers, musicians, hunters and drunks all focused around a bar the gallery created serving up cold PBRs.

Tonight, Charles Linder will show and tell viewers how to hunt, kill, and BBQ wild boar. In fact, fresh wild pig will be BBQ'd outside the gallery starting @5pm. ~check the complete schedule.

Moon The Moon
Thursday, 17 March 2011 20:19

THIS MONTH'S FULL MOON (ON SATURDAY) IS GOING TO BE MASSIVE <-- Because this is nearly the closest the Moon can be to Earth (31,000 miles closer), this upcoming full Moon will not just be a supermoon but some are calling this an extreme supermoon... The closest positioning since 1992. Huge time.

Bozic's Soule
Thursday, 17 March 2011 17:44

Artists Damon Soule and Tiffany Bozic stopped in FFDG just now. Tiffany's working on a new group of paintings, she mentioned. Damon's third solo show opens @FFDG this August which we're very excited about.

Michael Hsiung's Care Package
Thursday, 17 March 2011 12:14

R.I.P. Sion Milosky
Thursday, 17 March 2011 11:31

Hawaiian man killed while surfing at Mavericks <-- Sion Milosky was always in search of the biggest waves to surf. The Hawaiian native found those waves on Wednesday at the Mavericks surf break north of Half Moon Bay, but the swells were just too overwhelming.

Help Japan
Wednesday, 16 March 2011 15:15

We all wanna do something to help our friends in Japan who are in need. Max Erdenberger made this print $25 w/ all the proceeds going to help those in Japan.

We're sure that Max's funds will go to a good organization. Here's a list of places that can take $$ through mobile. Some say donating $$ is a good thing. Others say Japan doesn't need the money. Whatever, just do some research, and help the way you feel comfortable.

Recess Cease and Desist
Wednesday, 16 March 2011 10:12

Things were a tad sleepy around here as we took a few days off bouncing about the SF Bay for my birthday. The hangover has settled, we're in the new FFDG (open this week Wed thru Sat 1-6pm), and getting the Fecal chugging along once again. Stay tuned...

Poo. Check. Wifey. Check. Drizzle. Check. On the Water. Check.

When cake doesn't suit you, it's steak thirty.

Friday, 11 March 2011 11:47

addendum: this was last night, and 2 weeks of dawn to 12am work with my birthday coming up... Well, me and the wifey will be doing some well deserved R&R. See you on Tuesday when we run full throttle yet again.


Doing some install for tonight's show West, Wester, Westest @FFDG. Looks great. Hope you can make it. 248 Fillmore @Haight (7-10pm).

Loving the Lower Haight
Thursday, 10 March 2011 12:12

We are so excited to be around such great food and cafes now since moving FFDG to the Lower Haight. Favorites are quickly amounting, but Cafe Du Soleil at Fillmore and Waller has such kick ass coffee and food... try the open-faced chicken sandwich & amazing ham and cheese croissant (just the right amount of ham).

Sunday night Jazz @Cafe International - Photo from flickr by: Matt Nuzzaco

And, of course, Cafe International, a neighborhood staple (here since I moved here in '93), is friendly as ever serving up a perfect toasted tune fish sandwich. Wifey LOVES the mediterranean plate, outdoor seating, and don't forget Sunday evening live jazz which is a iteration of the Sunday night jazz at The Gathering Cafe in North Beach (long since closed) featuring BJ Papa and Bishop. A couple of beers listening to live Jazz is a great way to wrap up the weekend. Relaxing.

I don't think at this point it needs to be written since the last update to Fecal Face was a long time ago, but...

I, John Trippe, have put this baby Fecal Face to bed. I'm now focusing my efforts on running ECommerce at DLX which I'm very excited about... I guess you can't take skateboarding out of a skateboarder.

It was a great 15 years, and most of that effort can still be found within the site. Click around. There's a lot of content to explore.

Hit me up if you have any ECommerce related questions. - trippe.io


SF Giants' World Series Trophy & DLX
Wednesday, 04 March 2015 17:21

I'm not sure how many people are lucky enough to have The San Francisco Giants 3 World Series trophies put on display at their work for the company's employees to enjoy during their lunch break, but that's what happened the other day at Deluxe. So great.

The Death of the Artist—and the Birth of the Creative Entrepreneur
Wednesday, 21 January 2015 10:34

When works of art become commodities and nothing else, when every endeavor becomes “creative” and everybody “a creative,” then art sinks back to craft and artists back to artisans—a word that, in its adjectival form, at least, is newly popular again. Artisanal pickles, artisanal poems: what’s the difference, after all? So “art” itself may disappear: art as Art, that old high thing. Which—unless, like me, you think we need a vessel for our inner life—is nothing much to mourn.


Hard-working artisan, solitary genius, credentialed professional—the image of the artist has changed radically over the centuries. What if the latest model to emerge means the end of art as we have known it? --continue reading

In Wake of Attack, Comix Legend Says Satire Must Stay Offensive
Friday, 09 January 2015 09:59


Ron Turner of Last Gasp

"[Satire] is important because it brings out the flaws we all have and throws them up on the screen of another person," said Turner. “How they react sort of shows how important that really is.” Later, he added, "Charlie took a hit for everybody." -read on

SF Bay Area: What Might Have Been
Tuesday, 06 January 2015 09:36


The San Francisco Bay Area is renowned for its tens of thousands of acres of beautiful parks and public open spaces.

What many people don't know is that these lands were almost lost to large-scale development. link

Monday, 05 January 2015 10:49

As we work on our changes, we're leaving Squarespace and coming back to the old server. Updates are en route.

The content that was on the site between May '14 and today is history... Whatever, wasn't interesting anyway. All the good stuff from the last 10 years is here anyway.

NYPD told to carry spray paint to cover graffiti
Wednesday, 21 May 2014 10:37

nyc_graffitiNYC --- A new graffiti abatement program put forth by the police commissioner has beat cops carrying cans of spray paint to fill in and cover graffiti artists work in an effort to clean up the city --> Many cops are thinking it's a waste of resources, but we're waiting to see someone make a project of it. Maybe instructions for the cops on where to fill-in?

The NYPD is arming its cops with cans of spray paint and giving them art-class-style lessons to tackle the scourge of urban graffiti, The Post has learned.

Shootings are on the rise across the city, but the directive from Police Headquarters is to hunt down street art and cover it with black, red and white spray paint, sources said... READ ON

Alison Blickle @NYC's Kravets Wehby Gallery

Los Angeles based Alison Blickle who showed here in San Francisco at Eleanor Harwood last year (PHOTOS) recently showed new paintings in New York at Kravets Wehby Gallery. Lovely works.

Interview w/ Kevin Earl Taylor

We haven't been featuring many interviews as of late. Let's change that up as we check in with a few local San Francisco artists like Kevin Earl Taylor here whom we studio visited back in 2009 (PHOTOS & VIDEO). It's been awhile, Kevin...

Peter Gronquist @The Shooting Gallery

If you like guns and boobs, head on over to the Shooting Gallery; just don't expect the work to be all cheap ploys and hot chicks. With Make Stuff by Peter Gronquist (Portland) in the main space and Morgan Slade's Snake in the Eagle's Shadow in the project space, there is plenty spectacle to be had, but if you look just beyond it, you might actually get something out of the shows.

Jay Bo at Hamburg's Circle Culture

Berlin based Jay Bo recently held a solo show at Hamburg's Circle Culture featuring some of his most recent paintings. We lvoe his work.


Fifty24SF opened Street Anatomy, a new solo show by Austrian artist Nychos a week ago last Friday night. He's been steadily filling our city with murals over the last year, with one downtown on Geary St. last summer, and new ones both in the Haight and in Oakland within the last few weeks, but it was really great to see his work up close and in such detail.

Gator Skater +video

Nate Milton emailed over this great short Gator Skater which is a follow-up to his Dog Skateboard he emailed to us back in 2011... Any relation to this Gator Skater?

Ferris Plock Online Show Now Online as of April 25th

5 new wonderful large-scale paintings on wood panel are available. visit: www.ffdg.net

ClipODay II: Needles & Pens 11 Years!!

Congrats on our buddies at Needles and Pens on being open and rad for 11 years now. Mission Local did this little short video featuring Breezy giving a little heads up on what Needles and Pens is all about.


In a filmmaker's thinking, we wish more videos were done in this style. Too much editing and music with a lacking in actual content. Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

AJ Fosik in Tokyo at The Hellion Gallery

Matt Wagner recently emailed over some photos from The Hellion Gallery in Tokyo, who recently put together a show with AJ Fosik (Portland) called Beast From a Foreign Land. The gallery gave twelve of Fosik's sculptures to twelve Japanese artists (including Hiro Kurata who is currently showing in our group show Salt the Skies) to paint, burn, or build upon.

Ferris Plock - Online Show, April 25th

FFDG is pleased to announce an exclusive online show with San Francisco based Ferris Plock opening on Friday, April 25th (12pm Pacific Time) featuring 5 new medium sized acrylic paintings on wood.


Backwoods Gallery in Melbourne played host to a huge group exhibition a couple of weeks back, with "Gold Blood, Magic Weirdos" Curated by Melbourne artist Sean Morris. Gold Blood brought together 25 talented painters, illustrators and comic artists from Australia, the US, Singapore, England, France and Spain - and marked the end of the Magic Weirdos trilogy, following shows in Perth in 2012 and London in 2013.

Jeremy Fish at LA's Mark Moore Gallery

San Francisco based Fecal Pal Jeremy Fish opened his latest solo show Hunting Trophies at LA's Mark Moore Gallery last week to massive crowds and cabin walls lined with imagery pertaining to modern conquest and obsession.

John Felix Arnold III on the Road to NYC

Well, John Felix Arnold III is at it again. This time, he and Carolyn LeBourgios packed an entire show into the back of a Prius and drove across the country to install it at Superchief Gallery in NYC. I met with him last week as he told me about the trip over delicious burritos at Taqueria Cancun (which is right across the street from FFDG and serves what I think is the best burrito in the city) as the self proclaimed "Only overweight artist in the game" spilled all the details.

FRENCH in Melbourne

London based illustrator FRENCH recently held a show of new works at the Melbourne based Mild Manners

Henry Gunderson at Ever Gold, SF

Ever Gold opened a new solo show by NYC based Henry Gunderson a couple Saturday nights ago and it was literally packed. So packed I couldn't actually see most of the art - but a big crowd doesn't seem like a problem. I got a good laugh at what I would call the 'cock climbing wall' as it was one of the few pieces I could see over the crowd. I haven't gotten a chance to go back and check it all out again, but I'm definitely going to as the paintings that I could get a peek at were really high quality and intruiguing. You should do the same.

Mario Wagner @Hashimoto

Mario Wagner (Berkeley) opened his new solo show A Glow that Transfers Creativity last Saturday night at Hashimoto Contemporary in San Francisco.

Serge Gay Jr. @Spoke Art

The paintings in the show are each influenced by a musician, ranging from Freddy Mercury, to Madonna, to A Tribe Called Quest and they are so stylistically consistent with each musician's persona that they read as a cohesive body of work with incredible variation. If you told me they were each painted by a different person, I would not hesitate to believe you and it's really great to see a solo show with so much variety. The show is fun, poppy, very well done, and absolutely worth a look and maybe even a listen.

NYCHOS Mural on Ashbury and Haight

NYCHOS completed this great new mural on the corner of Haight and Ashbury in San Francisco on Tuesday. Looks Amazing.

Sun Milk in Vienna

With rising rent in SF and knowing mostly other young artists without capitol, I desired a way to live rent free, have a space to do my craft, and get to see more of the world. Inspired by the many historical artists who have longed similar longings I discovered the beauty of artist residencies. Lilo runs Adhoc Collective in Vienna which not only has a fully equipped artists creative studio, but an indoor halfpipe, and private artist quarters. It was like a modern day castle or skate cathedral. It exists in almost a utopic state, totally free to those that apply and come with a real passion for both art and skateboarding

"How To Lose Yourself Completely" by Bryan Schnelle

I just wanted to share with you a piece I recently finished which took me 4 years to complete. Titled "How To Lose Yourself Completely (The September Issue)", it consists of a copy of the September 2007 issue of Vogue magazine (the issue they made the documentary about) with all faces masked with a sharpie, and everything else entirely whited out. 840 pages of fun. -Bryan Schnelle

Tyler Bewley ~ Recent Works

Some great work from San Francisco based Tyler Bewley.

Kirk Maxson and Alexis Mackenzie at Eleanor Harwood Gallery

While walking our way across San Francisco on Saturday we swung through the opening receptions for Kirk Maxson and Alexis Mackenzie at Eleanor Harwood Gallery in the Mission.

Jeremy Fish Solo Show in Los Angeles

Jeremy Fish opens Hunting Trophies tonight, Saturday April 5th, at the Los Angeles based Mark Moore Gallery. The show features new work from Fish inside the "hunting lodge" where viewers climb inside the head of the hunter and explore the history of all the animals he's killed.

The Albatross and the Shipping Container

Beautiful piece entitled "The Albatross and the Shipping Container", Ink on Paper, Mounted to Panel, 47" Diameter, by San Francisco based Martin Machado now on display at FFDG. Stop in Saturday (1-6pm) to view the group show "Salt the Skies" now running through April 19th. 2277 Mission St. at 19th.

The Marsh Barge - Traveling the Mississippi River from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico

For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to quit my job, move out of my house, leave everything and travel again. So on August 21, 2013 I pushed a canoe packed full of gear into the headwaters of the Mississippi River in Lake Itasca, Minnesota, along with four of my best friends. Exactly 100 days later, I arrived at a marina near the Gulf of Mexico in a sailboat.
