»I like to say that creative people are confident in only one thing: their own doubt.«
— John Maeda
and welcome to the first »anniversary« issue in 2016! For this special occasion, Spanish illustrator Antonio Páramo contributed this week's illustration. His work focuses on the beauty and bodies of the unconventional, non-standardized ones. Paired with a pin-up style, it's what makes his drawings so unique. If you want to see more of Antonio's work, you should definitely check out his portfolio!
