We are huge fans and friends with Jeremy Fish, who has graced our cover twice in the past and continues to be one of the mainstays of San Francisco. Not sure if all our readers know, but last year, Fish had to undergo two brain surgeries. As Black Book notes, "the 18 new pieces featured in Anger Management were produced in the 6 months between two brain surgeries undergone by the artist. After an aneurysm was found in his brain last November, Jeremy has focused on avoiding further agitating the artery through reducing his stress levels. These works are a result of visiting with an anger management specialist and rearranging his lifestyle so as not to threaten his health." Each of these works is a stunning testament to this time.

This past June, artist, Jux contributor, and Bostonian Caleb Neelon interviewed fellow artist and Bostonian Raul Gonzalez in our magazine. This friendship has now blossomed in a joint exhibition, Mojados y Polvosos (Wet and Dusty), set to open at Denver's Black Book Gallery this September 7, 2012, with Neelon focusing on a maritime theme and Gonzalez focuses on the idea of a voyage, using soil, coffee, and dirty water as his materials.
