Covers

Covers: Retracing Reggae Record Sleeves in London is a really cool project on Kickstarter, by London-based photographer Alex Bartsch, whereby he shoots reggae record covers in the locations featured on the cover. They make for some very cool photos! The Kickstarter project is to produce a book around Alex’s great photos.

TSOTW: NO DAPL

For this week’s installment of T-Shirt of the Week, I nominate this beauty from accomplished Los Angeles artist Patrick Martinez. Patrick has a history of speaking out on social and civil rights issues, and this time, he stands strong with the Standing Rock Souix, and the other tribes and protesters heading up the NoDAPL movement, which is in opposition to the proposed/ongoing construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, which would run from oil fields in North Dakota, down to the Mississippi, and which would potentially threaten the drinking water of several tribes whose land it would cross. The Army Corp of Engineers has all but ignored the concerns of the local tribes people, and so a large protest movement has grown around the issue. These tees are currently free for protestors, and not available for sale. #NoDAPL
