Fernando Elvira is an artist and photographer from the Basque autonomous region of Spain. He has a unique and refreshing approach to his life and art; unconcerned with the trappings of city life he lives as close to nature as he can, and produces distinctive artwork by hand alone, whether he’s working with vinyl cut outs, found objects, creating murals or making skateboard graphics. Jo Waterhouse managed to track him down recently and exchange emails while he was still on his travels in Bolivia to talk analogical art, smoothies and dried Llama fetuses.

The city moved on and so did Becca.

In the early 1990s, a fresh, do-it-yourself approach began to permeate the North American punk and hardcore scenes. The new DIY initiative didn’t stop at self-booking tours and self-releasing records—it reached down to the level of individually designing and assembling every physical aspect of the release.
