Rosamunde's Badass Burger
Tuesday, 22 March 2011 13:32

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 09:59

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 09:41

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 12:47

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

Saturday, 19 March 2011 14:08

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.

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.

Moon The Moon
Thursday, 17 March 2011 19:19

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

Help Japan
Wednesday, 16 March 2011 14:15

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 09:12

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.

Ryan De La Hoz at Seattle's Flatcolor
Tuesday, 22 April 2014 10:52

SEATTLE --- San Francisco based Ryan De La Hoz opens a show of new works at Flat Color on May 1st. We love Ryan's work and have shown it many times throughout the years. Ryan will be also showing at LA - Juxtapoz Psychedelic Show, The Well, LA, CA April 26th 2014 - SF - Paper Cuts, Spoke Art, SF, CA May 3rd 2014

Working in unconventional mediums such as woven blankets, puzzles, and faux marble, De La Hoz has pioneered an innovative style in a class of its own. Collages of white noise, flowers and tie-dye are all hand cut and assembled to create mystic portals of intrigue. Heavily influenced by themes of death and rebirth, past and present, and the collision of modern culture with antiquity; Form and Void is mysterious look into the odyssey of creation, destruction, and an examination of society at large. -show details

Monday, 21 April 2014 12:03

Hats, all over prints, 5 panel hats... it's all a bit obvious, but it's also how we dress and the QUIET LIFE'S PALM SPRINGS COLLECTION is looking breezy for the summer with no socks in the desert dust. ~take a tour


"Arrangement" by Michelle Fleck
Friday, 18 April 2014 10:23

This morning we take a closer look at this beautiful painting by San Francisco based Michelle Fleck now showing at FFDG.

Arrangement measures 24"x30", acrylic and aerosol on panel - inquires: info(at)ffdg.net

Michelle Fleck is a painter living in San Francisco. Her work focuses on the relationship between man and the landscape, and the marks we leave on it. Influenced by everyday life in the city, her paintings serve as snapshots of an ongoing intersection of the natural and man-made world. She strives to make work that has a sense of relevancy in a culture driven by a need for change and newness.

Jeremy Fish Opening a Solo Show in August at FFDG
Tuesday, 15 April 2014 09:33

Met up with Jeremy Fish last night to catch up and discuss his upcoming solo show opening this August at San Francisco's FFDG. Don't want to give too much away, but the guy is very busy these days. You know the giant pink bronze statue will be built and installed at the corner of Haight and Laguna welcoming those to the Haight (check) in 2015? Going to be incredible.

Check photos from his last San Francisco solo show in 2012, and mark your calendar for August as his next solo show opens at FFDG.

Monday, 14 April 2014 10:20

Sculpture of Jesus as homeless and sleeping on a park bench is "freaking out" the neighbors of this wealthy NC suburb. The sculptor, who has an affinity for street art, created it to remind us that "We believe that that's the kind of life Jesus had," Buck says. "He was, in essence, a homeless person." ~READ ON

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.

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

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.

Flavio Samelo's Downtown Sao Paulo Murals
