When I set out to make Faesthetic #1, I knew who I wanted to do the cover. I had already been collecting screen prints (and tattoos!) from Mike Giant since early college, and was stoked when he said yes. For issue #13, it only made sense to ask him again.
Ten years later and Mike is the international phenomenon I always knew he’d be. Faesthetic has grown as well. From a hand stapled – xeroxed zine, to a full color offset printed magazine with international readership and participation.
For the 10th anniversary issue, I focused on the theme of LUCK. Each of the 40+ contributors created black & purple LUCK based work. In addition we have thoughts on the past 10 and upcoming 10 years from an amazing cast of characters: Jeff Staple, Jason Polan, Tiffany Bozic, Cody Hudson, Roger Gastman & Porous Walker.
We also have a short essay and photo spread from Molly Dilworth with thoughts on her stunning 2010 Times Square installation. And, to top off this 10 year anniversary cake we have some punch out cards from one of my favorite artists; Mark Mothersbaugh.
To celebrate 10 years of independent publishing, for a limited time I’m offering the new issue for only $13 with the entire available back catalog (issues 7-12) for only $13 more. That’s 7 issues for only $26, and a $39 savings! We’re also offering laser etched keychains designed by Jennifer Daniel to the first 100 copies of #13 sold.
My heartfelt thanks goes out to everyone that’s supported Faesthetic over the years. I hope you are as excited about this new issue as I am. Heres to 10 more years.
