Whilst in San Francisco I managed to get along to the Academy of Art to an exhibition hosted by a friend of mine. As someone who thinks the word 'illustrator' is a tad pretentious I was a bit wary of a fine art exhibition - how wrong I was. Daniel Ochoa is fucking aces. I'm not going to embarrass myself by attempting to explain why given my knowledge of 'proper' art and artists is pretty fucking limited but the nearest comparison I can make is with Ashley Wood's paintings. Which is about as high praise as you're likely to get on here even if it is probably a little misguided. If anyone with $3100 wants to buy me a gift please refer to the first picture below.
