[...] she knows it when she sees it — a neon sign burning late at a liquor store or a motel, in Chinatown, the Mission, and through the fog in the Outer Sunset where she lives.From that image, she creates a vibrant painting, a process that involves five colors at most, to create the effect of a vintage cartoon or comic book.“I’m trying to create a style that evokes a sense of nostalgia and familiarity,” says the 25-year-old artist.“Liquor stores and corner stores, motels — things like that — are a facet of every city and town,” she says.The liquor stores and corner stores there are in strip malls, but she loved them just the same.In the crush of humanity, she started taking pictures and later combined them into a painting of a man eating a hot dog in front of a liquor store.Above the liquor store is an apartment building with clothes drying on a fire escape.The pieces in the 111 Minna Gallery show are as large as 5 feet square, which means more signs, more people and more streetscape.

- Nevada regulators mull expedited marijuana supply licensing
By SCOTT SONNER, Associated Press - Thursday Jul 13, 2017
(AP) — Following an overwhelming demand for recreational marijuana, Nevada regulators are set to vote Thursday on emergency rules that would expedite licensing for pot distributors.A judge granted a temporary injunction, which the state is appealing to the Nevada Supreme Court, after the Independent Alcohol Distributors of Nevada persuaded him the state had arbitrarily concluded there was an insufficient number of liquor wholesalers to meet the demand.Under the proposed regulation, the wholesaler must demonstrate it "has resolved to the best of its ability any potential conflicts with its federal liquor licensing and the distribution of a federally illegal product.""Without the ability to license marijuana distributors to continue the flow of product to the retail store, a high likelihood exists that consumers will revert to the black market," Contine wrote.
