3. Follow Friday: Robin Galante. If you've ever gone to the website of KCRW podcast Nocturne, you've seen Galente's work: She provides the haunting illustrations for each episode of the podcast about "the night, the landscape of the unseen, and how thoughts, feelings and behaviors transform in the dark." The San Francisco-based artist also creates numerous depictions of the city, and regularly draws her dreams. (Much of her art is available for sale in a variety of formats, BTW.)
You can keep up with everything coming from Galante's prolific imagination via social media, proof that there's still delight to be found in the oft-fraught platforms. For example, her most recent Facebook post is about a woman who was "overwhelmed with emotion" by the image on one of Galante's greeting cards. Meanwhile, via Twitter, she's sharing a recent painting of an iconic SF building, one that she says made her think "Wow... I'm definitely not in Los Altos anymore." And all the while, over on Instagram, she's sharing her artistic process. You can follow her on Twitter @RobinGalante1, on Facebook at robingalanteart, and on Instagram @robin_galante_art.
