Dust La Rock x Commonwealth Recap

Posted on Jul 17th, 2009

This past weekend the FG fam loaded up our hovercraft and sped down to Norfolk, VA for the opening of Dust La Rock’s “Best Of The Beast” show at Commonwealth’s flagship store. Dust’s pieces looked as stunning as the tattooed mamis at the party, Nick Catchdubs provided nuff tunes (including hidden Fam-Lay gems and a gang of FG exclusives that Virginia was first to ever hear live), and we were greeted by a team of Hampton Roads’ finest, including Chad Hugo of Neptunes / N*E*R*D fame. Check out pics from the night from Commonwealth and Flash You’re Famous – we’ll be linking up more as we get them, though unfortunately no pics exist of the donk exhibition outside 7-11 later that night, or the epic Bojangles meal the following morning.

The opening also marked the debut of Commonwealth’s limited edition Best Of The Beast tee, a Hell’s Satans-worthy garment that you can purchase online while they last. More C’mon x FG collabs coming soon, as well as further graphic awesomeness from the man, the mystery, The Duster.

Virginia Is For (Fool's Gold) Lovers

Posted on Jul 10th, 2009

This Saturday (tomorrow!) we’re proud to present Dust La Rock’s “Best Of The Beast” show at Commonwealth in Norfolk VA (FYI, this is the Virginia Commonwealth, not the DC store. Don’t worry DC, we love you too and will be there soon!)

Nick Catchdubs will be providing the tunes, and we’ll be debuting a devilishly exclusive Dust La Rock x Commonwealth “Best Of The Beast” t-shirt. Limited quantities of the shirt will be available on the Commonwealth webstore next week. Out-of-towners can also purchase actual art pieces from the show on Dust La Rock’s gallery site.

Best Of The Beast: Online + On The Road

Posted on Jun 29th, 2009

So you saw the pics from Dust La Rock’s gallery show Best Of The Beast (hailed everywhere from MTV News and the Village Voice to Diddy’s Twitter) and wished you could have been in the building? Or purchase some of those mindbending museum-quality prints for your own wall? We got you!

The entire BOTB collection is now up on the DLR website, where collectors can purchase pieces from this extremely limited run of signed and numbered Giclée prints beautifully printed on archival paper and canvas. Don’t miss out on the debut collection from our favorite artist in the world (we’re biased, but it’s true!)

If that’s not enough, Dust is taking Best Of The Beast mobile, with an installation this month at Commonwealth in Norfolk, VA. The opening party is July 11th, featuring a DJ set from Nick Catchdubs, Fool’s Gold giveaways, and the release of an exclusive Dust La Rock x Commonwealth t-shirt. Check the flyer after the jump, we’ll see you there! Read More

Dust La Rock Interview on Behance.com

Posted on Jan 23rd, 2009

“I don’t appreciate myself or my work being labeled or defined by people, and I have repeatedly and purposely attempted to defy all conventional wisdom as it pertains to ‘the rules’ of our industry…The phrase ‘do what thou wilt’ as written by Francois Rabelais and associated with the philosophy of Thelema is the word of the law I live and work by.”

Duster gives up the goods – and some saucy pull quotes! – on FG art direction and general graphic rules (or lack thereof) to live by in this web feature on Behance.com.
