Silver Lining

Last year I had this idea to make a magazine that was all illustrated. And then a couple weeks ago while at McNally Jackson, my most favorite bookstore, I found this magazine called Fashion Tale...

... and I am in L O V E.

It's almost like a book in its content (and its price, about 40 buckaroos, ack!). It's all editorials, each made by a different illustrator with no advertising to distract you. There are collages, watercolors, and graphite drawings, which means all the pages are filled with 100% certifiable magic. MAGIC!


Well, the awesome thing about having an idea that turns out to already exists, is that at least you know you aren't crazy. (Granted, the thing that I wanted to do was very different from this, but hey, my brain is not crazy!).

I think you should still do it. Your magazine would be totally different. I'll contribute.

i like this because that's how designs are born - illustrated on paper.
