We used to stay in the SF Grand Hyatt all the time back in the day (don’t ask). So when Cardiel slayed it we thought it couldn’t have been done by a better guy. Now, though we’ll miss seeing that rail and reliving the moment, it is nice to see that the rail is in really good hands.
Canadian born graphic artist extraordinaire Geoff McFetridge has always been a mystery to us. His work is always clean, clever, cool, and catchy just like a great pop song, but we’ve never heard the man speak through anything other than his art. That’s why it’s great to see him sit down with the legendary Chris Pastras for an episode of Monster Children’s Table Talk. Watch it and learn.
