“Why the name Stache?”
Whenever someone asks that question, I always find myself torn between the truth and the embellished white lie. I tell people some complicated reason I made up six months after our first magazine release but as I leave my editor-in-chief post behind (more on this later), I want to disclose the real reason why I picked the name Stache; it was because I couldn’t think of anything else and it just felt right.
Call it a moment of clarity or divine intervention, but the name just jumped in front of me as soon as I decided that I wanted to start something for my own creative sanity. That one impulsive decision changed my life and, as some of you told me, other people’s lives too. It has been an amazing three years and all of us grew in more ways than we can imagine.
I just want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for being so supportive of us and our mission to spread the culture of creativity in the country and the world. We wouldn’t be where we are without you and because of that, we decided that we will take things to the next level. With Jared Millan, our previous Creative Director extraordinaire, taking over the Editor-in-Chief post, expect bigger and better things for Stache. I guarantee you that. I will still be here lurking in the shadows of corporate slavery (I’m kidding) as the new Sales-Manager-slash-Art-Editor.
We officially close our Stache year and my term as EIC with one of the best illustrators in the country, Daryl Feril. We’re so excited for you to learn more about his story and get inspired with his work. We also have articles on introspective travelling, evolution of music artists and columns on the US shutdown and routines.
We hope you enjoy reading our 17th issue as much as we did making it.
