Tuesday, April 26 at 8:00pm - 1:30am <-- and you're gonna wanna get there early because something tells us this is going to be a full house.

Urrrffff Day
Friday, 22 April 2011 10:40

Hey, why not take your favorite plant to some openings tonight for Earth Day? {calendar} Poor lil' guy doesn't have legs to walk around with. Show some love for the slow moving green machines who convert our carbon dioxide back into oxygen giving us all that breathing important stuff. The least we can do is show a little love... Actually, that would be pretty funny to see people spending the evening with their favorite plant. Dinner, a walk, a film, riding bikes and skating down the street all holding lil' plants. Haha. I'd buy that for a dollar.

SPB Convention in SF This Weekend
Thursday, 21 April 2011 14:08

Bunnies... Hundreds of bunnies, The Silly Pink Bunnies, are about to descend onto San Francisco from across the globe as the SPBs wrap up their final (the last?!) yearly convention this weekend.

Photo: pbo31

The meanest gang in America? Or are there the loudest and drunkest? You decide this weekend. --> Silly Pink Bunnies: a large gang with connections to the artist Jeremy Fish. He was the founder of this rather large skate gang that has chapters in many cities like Los Angeles, Long Beach, and San Francisco. Unless you are a member, the traditions and customs of this gang are rather secretive.

The private festivities for Dons only begin this evening and continue throughout the weekend, but there are 2 nights open to ALL where you can celebrate with the infamous gang. Saturday night at Thee Parkside, Hightower lets loose w/ Motorhome and Buzzard. DJ Don Ceasar will be spinning too, and trust us, this DJ has the best taste in music. If you have just one of his mixes, you know what I mean. --> Biz Markie on Sunday night @Mezzanine.

Art for the SF Marathon?
Thursday, 21 April 2011 12:29

We welcome work and participants that reflect the unique artistic community that exists in the Bay Area. We hope that those visiting from out of town will take back an experience that is more than just a traditional marathon event.

In order to effectively respond to this call, you must submit your reply no later than June 1, 2011. ~Complete Details

Constance Lee Hockaday Lecture Sat
Thursday, 21 April 2011 10:04

One of my friends from the Miss Rockaway rafts is doing one of her crazy interactive floating lectures in SF over the next couple weeks beginning on Saturday.

Constance Lee Hockaday, nautical artist and lecturer has scrapped together and dissected old wooden sail boats into a tsunami shaped sculpture at the Carville Annex in the Outer Sunset. From within this shipwreck of an installation she will give a scattered and performative lecture of associations and truth stretchings--questioning some people’s tendency to cross great bodies of water in unlikely vessels, the tendency toward that awful word hope, pilgrimage, abandon, carnival; with the help of Moby Dick, Elizabeth Taylor, Wallace Stevens, Ms. Nancy Bogg’s floating brothel, Magpies and their fascination with the shiny, water as a metaphor for other radical human endeavors, how ridiculous is it to project ourselves into the future--a tremendous thing.

The Carvile Annex, A year and a half of gatherings and publications generously supported by Southern Exposure's Alternative Exposure Grant (Fecal Face was awarded one in 2007).

April 23rd, May 6th, and May 13th. Come at 8pm. There will be whisky. -->more details

Tommy Guerrero on KQED's Forum
Tuesday, 19 April 2011 10:59

Woke up yesterday morning totally fried from moving apartments all weekend (see below) and was pleased to hear our friend Tommy Guerrero being interviewed on KQED's Forum (listen online or download the MP3)... Covering his music, skateboarding, art, etc, it's an interesting 1 hour long interview and you're gonna wanna download it for later listening enjoyments... or listen to it right now.

The San Francisco Chronicle describes musician Tommy Guerrero's work as "a soul, jazz, psychedelic fusion that feels like a soundtrack for walking the streets of San Francisco." That's appropriate, since Guerrero first made a name for himself navigating the city's avenues and alleys as a pioneering pro skateboarder. We'll talk to Guerrero about his journey from high school dropout and teen skate god to entrepreneur and indie music icon. He joins us as part of our "First Person" series featuring the leaders, innovators and other individuals who make the Bay Area Unique.

Ever move your art gallery, host 2 art openings, participate in an art walk... and then move apartments a month later?! Wouldn't recommend it, but all is now accomplished, and we can get back to normal here at Fecal Face and FFDG. Get up, dust off and get to work.

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

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

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

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.
