Rough Draft is a magazine I designed, illustrated, compiled, and wrote for my MFA thesis project. I wanted to create a magazine, centered on topical articles, about persistent and/or perennial current events. Rough Draft is broken up into three sections: “The World Observer,” “Getting Better,” and “Creative Freedom.” The first section deals with issues on a larger scale, such as pollution and global climate change. The second section contains stories of people helping others, and working together to create something positive. The final section showcases contemporary artists and their inspirations/aspirations, through my own interviews.
