We don't know where you live, but here in the Northern portions of California, it feels a lot like summer at the moment. That has put us in a certain mood where watching the Mollusk Surf Shop produced short film, "Knost Split" by Jack Coleman just seems like a good way to relax and feel the lazy summer days ahead.

It feels like we have been following the work of Alex Kopps for years, but finally, in our new November 2013 issue, we have an exclusive interview with the ... well, elusive artist. Kopps has done a bunch of work in and with Mollusk Surf Shop, a ton of surf art, a ton of fine art, video, photography, and other forms of documentation... and we just get our own creative juices flowing when we see his work. Get the issue, and perhaps look at Kopps' eclectic work.

This past March, we checked out the solo show of one Nat Russell at Mollusk Surf Shop in San Francisco, sans camera. That was not smart. Now on the eve of Russell's showing at Ed. Varie in NYC, we wanted to showcase some of the works of the Indianapolis-based artist. With wit and abstract graphic elements, his new show will feature large scale paintings, watercolor, and silk-screen works on paper, a multi-dimensional installation, and fine art lithography prints.

Mollusk's Venice surfshop location threw a limtied edition kick-off party for the Hurley Rick Griffin collection, complete with—what do you expect?—free drinks, tacos, and soundtrack by legendary surf rockers Denny Aaberg and the Cheater 5. Photos of the festivities after the jump. Stop by Mollusk (online or in SF and Venice) to grab Rick Griffin threads.

We were recently introduced to Augustus Thompson's work while looking at magazines at the fantastic San Francisco surf store and art gallery, Mollusk. Thompson's faces have a life to them, a poetic style that harkens back to some of the classic eras of San Francisco art and literature. More images after the jump . . .

As we prepare to release our Juxtapoz Presents video profile on Sam Bassett, we look back at some of the great Juxtapoz portraits shot by the photographer. Mr. Bassett has been our contributing photo editor and integral part of our visual appearance for over 3 years, and seeing his a body of work in near full shows his common threads and experimental nature.
