โ€œTriunfoโ€ lettering
๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ
Off and on over the past couple years, weโ€™ve been working on building out a full alphabet of some found lettering painted on the wall of an old motorcycle repair shop in Barrio Logan. Not sure how itโ€™ll be used??? Could be a fun chromatic typeface for Letterpess applications. Maybe weโ€™ll release it as a free download. You tell us!
๐Ÿ’ฅโœ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฅ
Props to @eliotn.jpg for advancing this one, still excited to finish it up! ๐Ÿ™Œ

NEWSFLASH from the desk of a public art superfan...
โšก๏ธโšก๏ธโšก๏ธ
Mesmerized by this new piece from @jxlstudio... a curvy, buttery concrete field. The sweat and R&D that went into these mind blowing tiles must be monumental. [pics 1-3]
๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿ’ฅ
Installed on the other side of these gardens, a sandcrawler-esque corten steel sanctuary from @miki_iwasaki. Sitting on comfy stools inside allows ample time to drool at the way light plays through the waterjet-cut patterns. Pure radness. [pics 4-6]
โœจ๐Ÿคฉโœจ
Hats off to all the folks who made this happen - @mingeimuseum @artsdistrictlibertystation @setandrift - bring us more please... keep the tasty #publicart coming!

The 4th of July is upon us!
๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐ŸŽ
Looking forward to sipping some @newtopiacyder whilst frolicking near a large body of water.
๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐ŸŽ
It is a fitting beverage for such an occasion after all...
๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐ŸŽ
In early America, apple trees were planted extensively (ever heard of Johnny Appleseed?), and hard cider made a safe alternative to suspect colonial drinking water sources.
๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐ŸŽ
For more on the apple, marijuana, and theories on how people and domesticated plants have formed reciprocal relationships, check out Michael Pollanโ€™s book, โ€œThe Botany of Desireโ€.

Buzz Man - a deliciously crisp cream ale from @unsungbrewing, in the tradition of Midwest summertime baseball-game-listening, lawn-mowing, yard-beast-taming, garage-tinkering, WD-40-employing, pumice-soap-utilizing Weekend Warriors, as the phrase goes. ๐Ÿกโ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ› ๐Ÿ“ปโšพ๏ธ๐Ÿบ Donโ€™t let the style name fool you- this ainโ€™t no cream soda and it sure as hell doesnโ€™t contain vanilla. This sucker is true to the original style, a hybrid Ale/Lager, created to compete with an influx of German lagers to America in the 1800s. By the 1870s, the light thirst quenching lagers were outselling ales. The answer- Cream Ale. The hybrid style was soon forgotten during Prohibition, and has only recently made a comeback with the craft revolution reclaiming recipes of yesteryear.

Itโ€™s a dad beer if there ever was one. And in fact, the brewerโ€™s dad inspired the beer, making it a perfect choice for Fatherโ€™s Day weekend. To top it off, the illustration on the can was done by the 2019 unofficial dad of the year @danedanner.

Look for Buzz Man tallboys on the shelves of SoCalโ€™s finest beer marts this weekend, and share a cold one with your unsung hero of a dad! ๐Ÿป๐Ÿป๐Ÿป #fathersday #craftbeer #ocbeer #occraftbeer #lacraftbeer #labeer #unsungassemble #ohbeautifulbeer #packagingdesign #graphicdesign #illustration #comics #comicbooks #superheroes #danedanner #unsungbrewing #mospoclients
