The Skinny - Why Did I Create this Magazine? This is body of work is a culmination of styles that I have been slowly working on for the past year! Scouring DePoP, Goodwill, Salvation Army, E bay, Joan Fabrics, Amazon, etc for cheap creative props and clothes. I used nostalgic anime, 90's fashion, and sci-fi elements as a base for this (as well as Leyla and Anna's own personal styles).

The Story - I moved out of my Parents House in January after a long-running triptych of misfortune and that has left me to reflect on the value of my childhood and how it shaped my taste - the clarity of the memories, smells, emotions are now more distinctive to my senses and I'm trying to channel them into pictures. My foundation of amusement was Saturday Morning Cartoons all the way to Adults Swim's late shows with the sound turned down low... I was glued. My social life as a kid? Playing with Yugioh and Pokemon cards to no end. Creating, drawing, and cutting out our own game cards with my friends and cousins. The love was all there and I can still feel flashes when looking at the old imagery - be it on a 42" Tube TV or a holographic card glimmering at me from behind a plastic sleeve. 

Hope this gave you some insight into what I'm getting at. I took pictures because I know I can't say it right in words. Bless for reading and I hope you can support if you enjoy the imagery.

Love,

Trent

Risks and challenges

I put down the money for the first 50 magazines to be printed and I am looking to make a small return on that investment while giving everyone some good coffee table material - hell, cut a page out and pin it to your wall! Take it to Starbucks and look at it in public to make passerby's jealous even?!
