For Dust La Rock

2015 Feb by Mike Davis

Just caught wind of the terrible news that one of our friends and fellow graphic artists passed away far too soon. Josh "Dust La Rock" Prince has been an inspiration since the early 2000s. His artwork is huge, not necessarily in size, but in breadth. It's clever, funny, dark, and dangerous. I've spent a lot of time trying to emulate his style and creative approach, especially the work he did for Fools Gold Records, the groundbreaking NY-based dance music label he helped co-found.

I don't remember exactly how we came into contact, but I was blown away that not only had heard of me and Burlesque, but was a fan of our work. Being someone that really looked up to Dust a lot as an artist, that meant a lot to me. I only had the chance to meet him once and he couldn't have been much nicer than he was.

Here are some of my favorite works of Josh's.

 

 


A poster he designed during his tenure as creative director at Scion A/V which we had the pleasure of screenprinting here in our studio:

More recently, Josh and his fiancée, a textile artist, started The Whirling Log Trading Co, an online store for indigenous art and vintage Americana goods, and a platform to take back the immeasurably polarizing icon known as the swastika. For years, Josh boldly fought the uphill battle to reclaim the swastika, also known as the whirling log, to celebrate its original peaceful meaning before being co-opted and bastardized by the Nazis during WWII.

Rest in peace Dust. You will be missed.
