One of our favorite artists we cover, SF-based Jason Jägel (featured in the January 2010 issue), will be showing at one of our favorite SF spots, Needles & Pens, starting on Friday, September 7. The Castle features a new series of paintings and drawings. And if we are lucky, Jason will give us a new mix for our morning commute. "Love Junky" express.
