Our cover this week comes courtesy of local artist Andrew McGranahan. The Modesto native and freelance graphic designer worked mostly in collage, both analog and digital, to create a markedly tongue-in-cheek holiday scene to accompany our seasonal gift guide. “It seemed fitting to create something that would be a bit of a commentary on the insatiable appetite of the modern consumer for new gadgets and things,” says McGranahan, who also serves as the artist member of local psychedelic rockers Wild Wild Wets. Keep an eye out for a solo show of his work at Teros Gallery in January. Until then, follow him on Instagram at @andrew_mcgranahan.
