I got a nice package from the wonderful people at Anorak Magazine and I am completely blown away. This is my new favourite publication and the craziest part is that it’s a freakin children’s magazine!
My beef with kids programming these days is that it is all soooo dumbed down and Anorak truly is a breath of fresh air. Imaginative illustrations, amazing hand-lettering, and beautiful page layouts. Apparently the Tate Modern and Colette agree with me as they’re included on the list of outlets stocking the mag.
The New York Times published an article/video last week about an Australian man named Oliver Percovich, who has worked hard for two years to create Skateistan – Afghanistan’s first skateboarding school. Hit “more” to watch the video and I’m sure you’ll be as inspired by the story as I am!
