So I’m in Chicago on a business trip, and I’m staying at an AirBnB apartment. First thing I notice as I enter my room is this striking piece of artwork. It’s messy and angry but also full of lovely little details like cut pieces of patterned paper. It’s a college telling a story I’m not entirely sure I understand. And at the bottom of the print is a large signature screaming “BEVERLY FRESH.”

Of course I hit google, and immediately stumble upon BeverlyFresh.com. I was surprised to find that not only is this feller a visual artist, but he’s also a hip hop artist!

Not only is he a visual and hip hop artist, but he lives just north of me in Detroit! And not only does he live 45 miles away from me, make art and music I love….

HE MAKES ZINES.

Toledo, let’s work on getting this homeboy down for a visit and performance!
