What’s the best Christmas present you’ve ever had? I can still remember mine: a set of gliterry gel pens my parents gave me when I was about 10 years old. That was probably the start of my obsession with sets of coloring and art materials but I never got around to using them though because they were so pretty to look at! Since then, I fell in love with seeing color and the endless combinations of various things around you. And this is also one of my driving forces in creating Stache and maintaining it with the lovely and ever-hardworking Stache team.
This month, we went back to our roots and declared another all-out art issue for December. It is just a reminder for us that this is why this magazine exists. There are a lot of fresh and new talent out there and the market needs more creative people to inject a little more passion in the industry. We’re here to create a platform for our readers and we are more than happy to present 21 contributors who gladly lent their artworks and original songs (!) to us.
The past 12 months have been amazing to us and we just want to thank all of you for your continuous support. Here’s to another year with Stache (filled with major changes and better things too)!
