Mothra Has Arrived in San Francisco
Godzilla, King Ghidorah, and Gamera have all wreaked havoc on our beautiful city by the bay, and now it’s Mothra’s turn to touch down in San Francisco. Eric carved the benevolent beast swooping through Japantown in the shadow of the iconic Peace Pagoda (complete with Shobijin fairy twins). She made a dramatic debut at last month’s Roadworks Printing Festival, pressed against the pavement under a seven-ton steamroller. We’ve detailed this special linocut’s origin story here, and prints in a variety of sizes are available here.

Exclusive, One-of-a-Kind Art Available in the Studio
Not only are our doors open seven days a week, but there are also a ton of treasures in our studio that aren't available anywhere else. This includes an ever-expanding array of original artwork from Annie--paintings, collage, greeting cards --plus sketchbooks and more. Come by and browse the goods in person; stay for a chat (and a coffee, or a beer...).
Printmaking is a blast; we love doing it, and think you will too. Our classes are perfect for total newbies and folks with carving experience. You'll learn how to select an image, transfer it onto a linoleum plate, then turn it into your very own work of art with a unique edition of prints. We've got a pair of sessions available this month: October 13th and 20th, and October 27th and November 3rd. Clickhere to sign up.
Welcome to the 3 Fish Studios Blog!
It’s here! We’re debuting a brand new blog to share more about 3 Fish folks and the happenings at the studio (and beyond). We’ll be posting regularly about the cool projects everyone’s working on, Goings-Ons and what gets our own creative juices flowing, and much more. Lots of great things in the works, so add us to your regular Internet rotation!
Art for AIDS
Both Eric and Annie donated work to Art for Aids this year. The juried live and silent auction will take place on Friday, October 9th, with benefits going to HIV/AIDS and LGBTQ mental health work done at the UCSF Alliance Health Project. Eric and Executive Director D.K. Haas pulled this red Godzilla print together, and Annie painted an I Love You California bear for the cause. Tickets are available here.
SF Open Studios
It’s the 40th anniversary of SF Open Studios! In October and November, 800+ of Bay Area artists welcome the public into their creative spaces to share inspiration and the way they work—something we love to do every day of the week, every week of the month, every month of the year. On Saturday October 24th and Sunday the 25th, we’ll be holding things down in our Outer Sunset studio with our good friend Paul Madonna for the festivities. Everyone’s welcome! SOMArts Cultural Center is also hosting a kick-off reception with pieces on display from an incredible array of locals (Eric and Annie included!) on Thursday, October 8th.
Ocean Beach Music and Arts Festival
We’re biased, of course, but are pretty sure that the Outer Sunset is the best neighborhood in San Francisco. On Saturday, October 10th, creative weirdos from all across the city are encouraged to come hang out with the creative weirdos of our coastal enclave at the Ocean Beach Music and Arts Festival. It’s basically a big street party on Noreiga, with food, booze, tunes—last year there was a spot-on Kiss cover band in full make-up and regalia—and, oh yeah… art (we’ll have a booth!). Lots of fun for sure.
Until next month...
