👋 It's Claire, your Axios SF social host here, with a spotlight on someone you may recognize.

Context: If you've walked down Haight Street, chances are you've seen Anthony Brown selling his art.

  • Tony B. Conscious, as he calls himself, paints skateboards, street signs and guitars. He even wears his art painted on his clothing.
  • I spoke to Tony on a random walk about a week ago. What started as a quick chat turned into a discussion about life, the universe and everything.
  • Others came by too, stopping to check in on him and ask him how his day was.
  • I ended up filming him for our Instagram — you can watch the video here.

What's next: Honestly, I want to keep bringing our readers and audience more of this — locals who make this city what it is, sharing their perspective on life and bringing a little joy to an otherwise ordinary day.

  • And if you have someone I should meet, drop me a message on Instagram. I'd love to hear from you!
