Stick to this! GROSS Magazine is about to break new ground
“GROSS Magazine is a new publication of stickers that is hoping to keep the craft alive and kicking” writes HYPEBEAST on this successfully funded Kickstarter project that is about to hit the shelves anytime soon. “The roots of this magazine come from what we’ve experienced. We got started with GROSS Magazine about a year and a half ago, after both of us had been operating in our own artistic areas. As designers and creatives ourselves, we both thrive on discovering new, out-there brands, creators, artists and musicians”, says the team of this fresh, vibrant publication.
GROSS’s first volume is inspired by the beginnings of artists, when creatives were still wide-eyed and had no clue what they were doing. The founders have rounded up contributions from a range of diverse creative individuals, including the likes of Aaron De La Cruz, Barney Cools, A-Trak and more.
“We have been obsessed with stickers since we started skateboarding in our early elementary school days; that obsession has never left… Let’s put some tangible life back into print”, they say. “We put our heart and soul into designing high-quality layouts, curating out of the ordinary content from a wide variety of contributors, and sourcing the best materials and printers; all to create a publication that our readers will cherish for years to come. We want GROSS Mag to be a piece of art that lives on your coffee table and inspires engaging conversations.”
On the event of their first 60-page debut issue Victor Gonzalez and Kevin Peth, (the duo of GROSS, an independent publishing company based in San Francisco, CA), are throwing a release party in San Francisco on Saturday, December 10th. “We hope to meet you all there!” they say. So, GROSS party anyone?
