Many of you may remember the recent entries on SlamxHype regarding Rostarr's Wreckless Abandon art exhibition that recently took place, well now, we would like to inform you of the book that has been published O.H.W.O.W.

Adam Neate's The London Show will be taking place on November 14th at a rather gargantuan gallery. The gallery in this case: the streets of London. A team of people will be in charge of randomly distributing 1,000 hand screenprinted paintings in the evening prior to the show. People are welcome to take the paintings and make them their own in this unique style showing. The show is now only 4 days away, so hopefully we will be able to present more news regarding this show after it has taken place.
Visvim's T.W.O. Boots Folk is something that might come in handy for those in cold weather climates, or just straight up fans of boots and Visvim in general. The suede upper and high-rise cut makes the boots look rough and rugged for trudging along in inclement climate conditions. Slipping in and out of these boots should be easy considering the side-zip feature. Check the detailed images inside.
Photographer Rick Rodney has been a busy man since the last time we wrote about him. His site has been updated with a lot of great material ranging from election day images, portraits with the Gas Lamp Killer and Jason Dill, to a day at the Santa Anita racetrack. In addition to that, you can also see some nice images of Q-Tip doing an instore performance (not sure about the location, but I am assuming Turntable Lab in Los Angeles). Rick is capable of a broad range of styles from photographing inanimate objects, to portraits, and picturesque landscape photography. A great all around variety of images are always available for viewing, which is exactly why I make it a point to check the site every now and then. Have a look inside at some examples of his work.
The "Imaginary Friends" show opened over the weekend at Gallery 1988 in San Francisco. It was definitely a busy weekend for Gallery 1988, as their other location in Los Angeles played host to Craola's "It Wanders West" show, but more on that later. The show at their S.F. location featured work from Scott Campbell, Andrew Bell, Cherri Wood, Israel Sanchez, Ken Garduno, and Yoskay Yamamoto. Have a look inside at what was on display at Gallery 1988.
Here is something of interest for those that DJ or are simply looking for a bag to tote around records. Head Porter does their thing with the DJ bag and presents this nice product comprising of some heavy-duty and rugged ballistic nylon that is sure to last. There are two compartments: 1 large one equipped with padded lining that is designed to support records and a laptop, and another smaller compartment that can be utilized to store CDs and other smaller pieces of equipment. Other amenities include the mesh compartments on the side that can also be used for storage and the padded shoulder straps. Have a look at the images after the jump.
