The Art of Storytelling
I just picked up the premiere issue of Taost: The Art of Storytelling Magazine. At first, I didn't know what it was about. I was just intrigued by the cover artwork by Bigfoot. Based on the title, I thought it was some sort of writing or poetry magazine until I flipped through it. That's when I saw the graff pictures inside. Covering the colliding worlds of graffiti, skateboarding, music, tattooing, and more, this New Jersey-based magazine looks like it's off to a great start. The first issue includes interviews with Rime, Suga, Bigfoot, and Iron Maiden cover artist Derek Riggs.
Here are some sample pages...
The magazine is available in Chicago at Quimby's, as well as at Barnes & Noble's and Borders nationwide.
