Faesthetic #9 dropped last week, and man, it’s a beauty. The theme of this issue is UFO’s, something that scared the shit outta’ me when I was a little kid, so I have this sort of masochistic love for it. As you can see in the top photo there’s and AMAZING cover by MARS-1 (he did the back cover as well) and features over 25 artists including:
Mark Pilkington & Prateâ„¢ Computer Channel , Rachel Gottesman, Julia Heglund, Gluekit, Paul Sahre, Mark Rubenstein, Arbito, Blonde vs Brown, Garrett Vander Leun, Adam White, James Unwin, PEAP, Jan Kallwejt, Joel Speasmaker, Sam Gilbey, Daniel Cantrell, Think Faest with Brian Roettinger by Forest, Joe Van Wetering, SnakeHawk, Joshua Agerstrand, John Solimine, Adam Cruickshank, Zeroten, Matt Curry, The Artists Guide to UFO’s, Becca Kacand & Thomas De Santis.
There’s one name in there that’s really close to me that I wanted to showcase as well. His name is Garrett Vander Leun, and he’s my roommate and best friend of 18 years. He did the other piece above called Fight Back, which features a little boy who’s sick of the probing and ends up kicking some alien ass, leaving quite a mess behind. Expect to see more of Garrett’s work in the Kitusne Noir universe and the larger art community as well!
