Last Week at FFDG in San Francisco artist Mike Giant opened his solo show, “Modern Hieroglyphics.” The show features a large number of Giant’s signature Sharpie marker drawings which reflect current and pop culture topics. If you’re in the San Francisco area this show shouldn’t be missed. Check out the jump for an extended preview:
One thing I notice about the Suby crowd is that they share a kind of camaraderie that I have never ever seen in any other “car group.”
I first noticed this when I was a kid and I would ride around with my cousin on his Impreza. I notice how he honks at Subarus on the road and they’d honk back. Just imagine two complete strangers, but just because you share the same interest in a certain car, it’s like you guys go way back.
I then got myself an Impreza a few years after that and I did enjoy being accepted by that group even if I just had a 2.0 N/A one. Guys with STi’s would still honk at me. A Subaru’s a Subaru and they knew that. We knew that.
When I had my Evo, I didn’t feel that same camaraderie in the Evo community. I’d honk at people and they wouldn’t give a sh*t. Some would even tail or overtake me in competition and I’m all “WTF???”. I’d call those guys “cannibals.”
Recently, I got my GT86. One time as I was going home from work, an STi pulled up next to me just to give me a thumbs up. I was reminded of how my 86 is technically a Subaru and I’m once again somehow part of the most warm and welcoming group of car guys once again.
I think this gif is fucking hilarious! 😂
Excuse my hair. It’s natural wave looks terrible.
