Dave Young, Eddie Colla and Hugh Leeman are at it again, they currently have a show at 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco!  Though they have been working together for a while, this show is meant to be less a collaborative effort and group show.  Nonetheless, it's interesting see how their work and thought processes have evolved, both individually and thanks to their collaborations.  Check out the interview and if you're in The City check out the show!

Here's what I know about Mike Shankman.  He's a hard working dude.  He is patient.  He's talented.  He loves painting deeply.  I'm not sure if there's anything else I need to know.  Oh, and I do also know his paintings are a real treat in person!  He is currently solo-showing at the prolific 111minna gallery, so check it out if you're in the area!  You won't be disappointed.
