I like people, dogs, food, bikes, skateboards and sleeping.

Campbell Milligan is the co-founder of Monster Children, something that, in my opinion, is so much more than a magazine. It’s a cultural movement. Campbell is a nice guy, sure, but he might be a little insane. Monster Children has the audacity, in this day and age, to create original stories and produce photographs and spend quality time working them into a tangible medium.

I asked him, what makes a good magazine? The answer may shock you.

Alex Bogusky has been called many things throughout his career: designer, marketer, author, creative director- even an idea man. All great things, but none of which I think will accurately define the body of work Alex leaves behind. In my opinion, Alex will be best known as an advocate. Not just for the work he has recently done for consumers, but for the work he will do for the human race. Wow, what a grand statement! I hope for the entirety of the human race I’m right.

Since Parenthood premieres tonight, I thought we could spotlight our photo essay with actress Erika Christensen, aka Julia Braverman Graham. 

1. Erika is an avid cyclist. Using the word “avid” is probably an understatement. Her bike was the first thing she wanted photographed.
2. Her favorite tote is this Rapha shoulder bag.
3. 
She started collecting Super 8s, so be on the lookout for a fun film project in the future.
4. 
A gifted porcelain tea cup from her grandmother.

Tavi Gevinson ”Lately I’ve found that I’ve been saying ‘This is how this is supposed to feel’ to myself a lot. So I guess keep your expectations low and know that this was never meant to be easy and the world is huge and people are many and now is such a small moment in time so learn about science and let it put everything in perspective instead of making you feel insignificant. But also, be okay with feeling insignificant. And also, consider what every situation is truly about, even if it’s unpleasant. This requires a lot of energy, so sleep often and don’t waste time on dumb websites or with bad friends who make you feel lousy. Most importantly, don’t listen to me.”

Being attacked by this dog.

Michael Christopher Brown, Photographer
While in Libya, Michael was hit on two separate occasions. “I lost almost half the blood in my body, needed two transfusions with shrapnel nearly piercing a lung and a major artery in my arm.” He was also kidnapped in Benghazi, saying of the ordeal, “These experiences made me question if what I was doing was meaningful enough for myself to continue doing it. Eventually I discovered yes, it is, but only when listening to myself.”

"A feminist to me is someone that believes in equal rights and equal opportunities for all people regardless of gender (or sexuality, or ethnicity, or socioeconomic status). And hell yes it applies to me. Feminism to me goes beyond just gender issues- it encompasses everything.”
