It took awhile to get through all the pictures. If you don’t happen to see your ride feel free to click on any of the pictures and browse my flickr uploads with more than 300+ pictures from the show. It was a gREAT turnout for the 1st annual Smoked Out Summer Showdown. Thanks to Mark Evans for getting this shiz together!
In support of a good friend of mine in Los Angeles I asked him if I could copy and paste his recent blog about his upcoming collab show. So if anyone out there browses my blog and wants to see some dope photography and chit chat with an A class guy and his wife. Please check this show out! And visit his Blog www.jaebueno.com
When my friend Melloe Won from Brooklyn Projects approached me about collaborating on a event, I agreed to it even before he could finish his pitch. Melloe and I have worked together before so I knew we could produce a sick event and when you add the legendary Brooklyn Projects to the mix who would say no?! We started to plan a few weeks ago and reached out to some great people to help with the event. Sino Tequila will be pouring their excellent Tequila for those of age in attendance and DJ Wrex will be providing the music to add to the event vibe. Clothing brands Labels and Acrylick are also on board with the event. Together we hope the event on 9/25 will be a memorable one for everyone in attendance. There will be a limited edition tee for sale at the event and Brooklyn Projects will be open for business for those of you that want to pick up some new kicks are denim to go with that limited edition tee! This is an all ages event so if the baby sitter cancels on you, bring the kids! I hope to see you on the 25th! Support those that support you! Jae Bueno
DUB Magazine and Hot Wheels/Mattel collaborated on a project a few years back called Dropstars. I really dug a lot of the models and had everything to date. But as the line fizzled out there were a few of the import cars that never seemed to reach the East Coast. I nabbed this Scion tC off ebay and after getting it I had found the same model dipped deep in one of my many boxes o’ cars. A nice opener for sure!
