Follow Friday: Phoenix Artists

Since downtown's First Friday is in full swing, we figured you should have some Arizona artists to follow today.

There's a lot to do this First Friday; from the to the Opening Reception at ASU's Vault Gallery, so you should probably go ahead and hit follow on these local artists before you head out for a night on the town.

After the jump, in no particular order, are some talented Phoenicians.
