San Francisco graffiti artist Rob Sakovich has spent the past 25 years in a world of rattle cans, and his spin on using them stacked as canvases is brilliant. His love of Northern California and the city by the Bay comes through in colors both vibrant and sublime. If you’re in the Bay Area, you can check out his first solo show opening this Saturday, December 8, at the Blackbird Bar on Market Street. Here are some of my favorite pieces, with more eye candy on his Flickr page.

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.
