absurdly deep and well thought out presentation of a extensive (and almost frustratingly) impressive body of work. lose some time flipping through it here.

The Fool’s Gold Artist Series in-stores give us a chance to turn our store into a gallery, show off some new work and exclusive items from talent curated by FG art director Dust La Rock, and invite everyone to come and hang.
Following exhibitions from Cody Hudson and JK5, Daniel Albrigo and HAZE, the latest creations to grace our walls come from Grotesk, who will be displaying a collection of brand new mixed media pieces (check his Instagram for some work-in-progress teasers).
Come through to the opening on Friday, March 2nd from 7-9pm at the FG store on 536 Metropolitan Ave in Brooklyn. Artist will be in attendance, refreshments will be served, and limited edition shirts featuring Grotesk’s art will be available for purchase. (Cop tees from past exhibitions on the FG webstore while sizes last…act fast!)

this frame in particular is a favorite of bill ray’s photos of the hell’s angels. its exactly why i spent a painstaking amount of time tracking down a mint ww2 n-1 deck jacket—not that i ride or anything. the arms are slightly longer than normal with full alpaca lining and a hard-as-nails windproof cotton exterior. worth every penny i spent for it on ebay.

a couple very good friends of mine—jeff thrope of cold splinters and kalen (½ of upstate, and taker of that gorgeous photo above)—are spending some time in marfa and west wexas right now. ive been living vicariously through the posts that jeff has been putting up on cold splinters as of late. i highly suggest you do the same. dont sleep on the ultra-crucial post about fluff.

i had the pleasure of working with john at the FADER. i couldn’t have completed much of my creative director job without his steady hand at photo editing. from his bio: “John Francis Peters is a photographer based in New York’s Hudson Valley. John’s diverse body of work ranges from the portraiture of influential personalities to essays on emerging culture and environments in transition. His personal and assigned photo projects have taken him throughout the United States and internationally to China, Haiti, Mexico, Jamaica, Grenada and Morocco.”
he has a great understanding of the use of light, a sensibility to subject matter that he cannot help but to take personal, and is a total road dog (as you can see from his travel essays on his site). check out his well presented body of work here.
unused type concept. thanks, stevie.
