Front Cover: Thimble by Pete Burkeet

Artist’s Note: Growing up in the rust belt was a huge influence on my work. The adjacency of factories with nature, oil wells in constant motion, and the forest behind my childhood home littered with shotgun shells are the birthplace of my aesthetic. I am drawn to dynamic places, eccentric characters, and abnormal situations that embody modern psychoses like magical thinking and escapism.
