A Peek Inside Lone Wolf Magazine

Ten issues later and I am somehow just now discovering the beautiful genius that is Lone Wolf Magazine. Better late than never though because Lone Wolf has created something absolutely vital to the world of fashion publishing. Described as a print fashion publication for intelligent, creative women, Lone Wolf caters to the artists, the business women, the creative freelancers, and the dreamers. They are a new breed of style publication with a goal of clearing the clutter, offering a curated, positive and enlightening reading experience. Instead of diet tips you will find history, instead of red carpets you will meet inspiring women you never even knew existed, and instead of sex tips you will find fantastic works of art. From the first page to the last, Lone Wolf is filled with gorgeous editorials and illustrations, smart stories, and real advice like how to achieve professional success in a historically male centered work world. 

As an avid collector of all things print, I can't stress enough how important it is to have magazines that celebrate women's intelligence and style, that uplift and empower, rather than profit from our insecurities. Lone Wolf along with the gentlewoman, and Riposte are absolutely leading the charge in this change and on behalf of smart, ambitious, publication loving women everywhere, I say HELL YES and thank you!   

Here are a few of my favorite pages from Lone Wolf Issue 10:

Two Odd Birds. Just The Good Times.

Last month I was gifted this adorable debut comic by Los Angeles-based filmmaker and musician Peter J Brant ( aka the dude who co-directed Solange's Lovers in a Parking Lot video).  Using incredibly charming risograph illustrations this comic chronicles all the good times during the relationship of two little birds. In fact, it's so freakin' charming that I'm going to share some of my favorite pages with you. Here's a little peek at Two Odd Birds

Girls Like Us

Beautiful design, smart articles, and themes that exude female coolness, the Amsterdam/ Belgium based GIRLS LIKE US is "turning the spotlight on an international expanding community of women from all genders within arts, culture and activism. Through personal stories, essays and vanguard visuals GIRLS LIKE US unfolds feminist legacies in arts and writing. Mixing politics with pleasure, the magazine is mapping new routes towards a feminist, post-gender future."  Can I get a collective HELL.YES? 

Issue 5, themed "Play" just came out and features a digital conversation with performance artist boychild, writer Chris Kraus on beer brewing and BDSM, music producer and artist Fatima Al Qadiri on her 1989 haircut, Californian surfers by Eve Fowler & Mariah Garnett, curator Annick Kleizen recapturing the artist residency circuit from a hammock in Brazil, artist Jesse Darling paraphrasing Drake, musicians The Knife dissecting their communal experiment ‘Shaking The Habitual’ through the eyes of their collaborators and MUCH MORE.
