I’m happy to present the latest T-Files interview with accomplished Angeleno artist Francisco Reyes Jr., a/k/a Never Made. Francisco is an accomplished artist/illustrator, and he also works at Studio Number One, alongside talent like Shepard Fairey and, formerly, Cleon Peterson. With Never Made, Francisco presents his creative vision across a wide range of items, including lapel pins, T-Shirts, sculptures, and limited edition screen prints. He has also worked with brands like REBEL8, Hurley, Primitive Skateboards, Epitaph, Hellcat Records and Urban Outfitters. Big thanks to our mutual friend Eddie Zammit, Melbourne’s own tee game Godfather, for connecting us earlier in the year. I’ve really enjoyed following Francisco’s art and design work, and was eager to learn more. [Read More]
Two of my favorite artists recently collaborated for the very first time, which is kind of surprising when you consider what great friends they are. Of course when Aaron De La Cruz (interviewed) and Sam Rodriguez (interviewed) finally decided to combine forces, the result was nothing short of impressive. A great new mural addition to SF’s Excelsior neighborhood. Find it at the corner of Mission St. & Onondaga Ave. Photos by Kenneth Berling-Orozco. [View Gallery]
The homie LA-based artist Benjie Escobar just released this awesome Art lapel pin which relates to his uber-popular Art Venn Diagram from a couple years back. The one that has been re-Tumbled like ten million times and ripped off a bunch too. All fine compliments to a great design. Available in his online store.
The latest release from ridiculously talented Los Angeles-based artist CRYPTIK is out tomorrow at 8AM PST. Peep the ‘Satya’ Limited Edition Hanging Scroll, 14″ x 24″, in an edition of 150.
