Local printmaking collective Colpa Press has selected limited edition prints, books, and objects by an assortment of artists to feature in a pop-up shop at Wire+Nail Gallery this weekend. And the opening is tonight from 6-9pm!
The pop-up shop will be open Saturday and Sunday, 10-8pm.
The Communication Company is a local letterpress studio run by Mission resident Katherine Wong, who promises to never print an owl. She made these gorgeous bifold greeting cards, and they’re now available on Etsy.
Also available: these colorful condensed bold purrs and exclamations:
Ooh, chihuahua indeed.
Pixel artist David Cole explains:
History recognizes two great eras of brotherhood: war-time sailoring and ’80s-era video arcade hooliganary. With this temporary tattoo pack, you can finally avoid wasting time celebrating these two things in separate contexts.

It has my fave song of 2010, “Cover Me In Diamonds,” plus a rip-roaring new version of the classic “Manpire” — and they’re giving it away for free. Rad pricepoint! Get it!
Our pal Jacob recommends his pal Jessica’s jewelry. She’s based in the Mission, and uses a laser cutter based in Soma to cut the intricate shapes seen above. See her Etsy shop for lots more intricate shapes.
My buddy Joan, who recently returned after a stint in L.A., immediately got to work putting her new apartment building on a shirt. I don’t remember exactly where it is, but if you recognize it you can stalk her, although she lives with her boyfriend and he’s a pretty big dude, so be careful out there guys. Otherwise just buy the shirt!
