Faesthetic Magazine (2001-Present)
Faesthetic has grown from a photocopied zine to a high-quality arts magazine with international participation and readership. I provide artists with compelling themes and the challenges of a limited color palette, to create exciting results. Since 2001, I have published over 600 artists!
In 2015, I collaborated with the Toledo Museum of Art for a special edition of Faesthetic, that was also used as the catalog for their summer "Play Time" themed show. It was truly an honor.
In 2018, I alongside Karen Ingram, collaborated with SXSW for a special edition, that was also used as the catalog for their art programing.

Artists included Novel, Wasp, Eugher, Spud, Exhaust, Timmy, Jig, 404 Era, Wruk, Snack & Fatigue.
