//I popped into this cool new store in the city (SF) called D-Structure and was lucky to see some of Erik Otto’s artwork gracing the walls. Erik is a talented artist from the Bay Area that creates some real hands-on pieces of art using all types of mediums, from scrap wood and spray paint to sketch pencils and tree branches. His artwork seems to be consistent with a specific theme — almost storylike. He describes his work as “a positive change in a decaying world.” i like that. He also has a clothing line named “New Leaf”. . check out the site, its pretty creative.// www.newleafclothing.com
