The San Francisco Bay Guardian which served as a weekly, leading progressive voice in the city of San Francisco since 1966, is closing after its final issue which was released this past Wednesday. Jeremy Fish, who was asked to work on the cover art for its last ever issue said:
” With a broken heart, I proudly present the last issue ever of the San Francisco Bay Guardian. I was unaware this would be the final issue when I drew it, but the day of the dead theme they requested seems so appropriate now as an SF institution dies a tragic death today. RIP SFBG and thanks for everything over the years. I will miss you.” – Jeremy Fish via Instagram
The Bay Guardian originally founded by Bruce Brugmann and his wife, Jean Dibble, 48 years ago, will now be missed by the SF community.
Some New walls recently completed by Spanish artist ARYZ while visiting Basque Country, Spain in Bilbao and in Casablanca, Morocco. Check out his latest mural style focused on representing his recent sketches in large scale.
Bilbao, Spain: ”El fin justificado”
“I always thought that the most difficult thing of painting in big formats was too keep the line gesture and the proportions like in the sketches. My sketches have a lot of mistakes and random lines, and somehow I wanted to reproduce that on a wall. The more effects and colors you use on your work, the more you can hide the mistakes and catch the viewer’s attention… when you use the line and not much more, the mistakes can be easily seen…” -Aryz
