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.

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.”

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.”

Aaron James Draplin, Graphic Artist
“I like to get the client involved. Fuck all the standoff-ish, “This is my creative endeavor and you better pick one” stuff. Work with people. Let them guide you as much as you guide them. That makes for ownership from all sides, you know? Designers are so good at bitching about changes, and how many hours they had to work, and all that shit. Whatever. Spend a summer trimming trees for a rural electricity company, and you’ll never lament another client change, ever. I don’t miss those bald-faced hornets that use to come after me.”

"For us, as long as it seems well thought out, has good design sensibilities, feels like it has emotion and feeling in it, and is interesting to look at."

12 Analogue Questions with Duane Fernandez

I’m honored to be featured on Lomography… 

When you live in L.A., you’re bound to rub elbows with celebrities often. Just ask photographer Duane Fernandez who has shot A-list stars like Jamie Foxx, Taylor Swift, and more. We recently caught up with the Californian who tells us how shooting analogue keeps him grounded in Hollywood’s hyped-up hills.
