It's hard not to root for someone who's toiled their entire life for something, like when Richard Dreyfuss played a music teacher whose son was deaf, but proved towards the end that yes, he can have a sick mustache. For local works done by a artist you can hang up wherever you've rooted yourself, check out SFHQ. From a SOMA-studio'd dude who took his first art class when he was still wearing He-Man footies, SFHQ's a collection of multimedia artwork inspired by the 7X7's most eye-arousing visuals, shockingly none of which are at Broadway and Kearny. All of the 8"x8" hangables are printed on acid-free card stock using a mad-scientist-y process: he combines original photographs with illustrations, then superimposes the result on an antique-y background sheet that's distressed by America's downgrade to AA+ with stuff like coffee stains. Highlights include a just-dropped, red-toned, WWII-ish screenprint of the Golden Gate; a Red-Bulled-up fleet of winged cable cars; and a collage-errific ode to BART that features a ticket, signage, and a train, which is decidedly less local if it's going to meet Virginia. Also worth checking out: three dozen photographs of SF streets, cable cars, and transit tracks, all sepia-toned to help "make a statement", though not one as profound as "life is what happens to you... while you're busy growing some wicked gross facial hair!".
