“San Francisco is such a colorful place,” explains Tobin Yelland. “There’s the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence… I’m ten and watching nuns play baseball. Dudes dressed like nuns playing baseball…” Growing up in the 70s and 80s in San Francisco, Yelland was raised in a city and household that embraced creative expression. As a teenager picking up a camera to photograph his friends skateboarding, it was only natural that his talent and interests were supported and encouraged by a growing community of like-minded artists, skaters, filmmakers, and photographers. “Creativity is so contagious,” Yelland tells us. Seeing someone do something different and realizing that “you don’t have to do the same thing, you don’t have to follow this structure, you can do whatever you want,” can be life-changing. Yelland led a Vans Vision Walk around San Francisco’s Mission District last weekend, encouraging everyone to collaborate with one another and sharing what he has learned from over three decades of being a photographer.

And Now... How To Paint a Bat with Marcel Dzama | Juxtapoz Magazine

And Now… How To Paint a Bat with Marcel Dzama | Juxtapoz Magazin…

Juxtapoz Magazine – Juxtapoz and If You Were Now previously shared a small tutorial by Marcel Dzama entitled, “How To Draw Bat.” Today, Dzama, the Calgary-born, Brooklyn based artist, now shares how to take that drawing and transform it to painting. Here is our summary: When we teamed up with If You Were Here Now, we knew Dzama was a perfect artist for a tutorial and art therapy session. His music choices and topics are always so specially produced, distinct with a certain aesthetic that can only be from the hand and mind of Dzama. Today, the Brooklyn-based artist will teach us how to paint a bat, a feature that shows up in his fine art work frequently. Bats are known to symbolize death and rebirth, often referred to as “Guardians of the Night.” In a moment in our global consciousness that has both extreme travesty and a need to understand our future growth, we are happy to share this video today.

How To Draw a Bat with Marcel Dzama | Juxtapoz Magazine

Juxtapoz Magazine – Marcel Dzama is a bit of a Renaissance man. He paints, draws, makes his own costumes, art directs videos and has created a visual universe that is uniquely his own. When we last spoke with Dzama in our February 2017 issue, we noted his work was a mixture of “surrealism, Dada, Duchamp, 1950s literature and punk rock, streams the consciousness of who we are and where we are going. He is the old soul with modernity at his fingertips.” When we teamed up with If You Were Here Now, we knew Dzama was a perfect artist for a tutorial and art therapy session.
