Local artist Doc Pop explains his latest creation:

Ever spent so much time searching for a thing, that you finally decided to just make it for yourself? I’m a big Star Wars fan and really wanted a high quality enamel pin based Grand Moff Tarkin’s imperial uniform. So I finally made some.

 Nice one, Doc! For sale here or at Mission: Comics & Art on Mission Street.

IMG_5443

The folks at Mission-based PSA Press (the makers of the Casa Sanchez “Jimmy the Cornman” pin and the Doggie Diner head pin and the It’s-It pin set) continue their tireless efforts to honor the Mission and SF:

The New Mission Theater in SF/CA was built in 1916. This Art Deco masterpiece boasts a 70 foot marquee sign that is a beacon at the heart of the Mission District where PSA Press calls home. In its early life, it showed mostly “B” movies. It is currently the location of our go-to movie theater, Alamo Drafthouse. The sign still stands tall 100 years later.

By local funnyman George Chen, this pin celebrates California AND Bart (AND the image was part of the first poster for the first edition of the long-running Mission-based comedy show Cynic Cave). Says George, “it’s 2016 so I made an enamel pin.”

Local pin purveyors PSA Press explain their product:

Casa Sanchez is a chip/salsa company based in San Francisco, CA that was founded in the 1920′s. Their mascot “Jimmy the Cornman” has become a local icon. In 1999, Casa Sanchez attracted national attention when it unveiled its new marketing campaign: get a tattoo of “Jimmy the Cornman” and get free lunch for life. Because of this over 200 people have Jimmy on their bodies forever. The Taqueria is now closed but Casa Sanchez remains the highest selling salsa in California, a true staple of the Golden State.
