All the News That Fits Into a Size Seven and a Quarter Hat


The Curious Gardener

The Curious Gardener, Ransom & Mitchell’s portrait of iconoclast Ron Turner for the Last Gasp 46th Anniversary show at 111minna in San Francisco . Baba Ron, founder of Last Gasp Books, is a visionary in the publishing world who has nurtured the uninhibited expressions of pop-culture, political dissent, counter-culture, dark art, sexual deviation, and all-forms of free-thinking. His kind heart, non-conformist mind and tireless dedication to free speech has allowed a vast array of voices that might not have been heard to be sung from mountaintops. He has launched and supported the careers of countless fringe artists and writers around the globe. In short he is LEGEND. This world is so much more interesting because of his rebellion against the banal.

So it goes.
