For this issue the team decided to step out of its comfort zone and do something we haven’t yet done. In fact I was hesitant to dedicate a whole issue to “craft” for that very reason. Stache is not Frankie Magazine and nor do we want it to be. But actually meeting the challenge head on was at once terrifying and liberating, and we could not have done it if it weren’t for the team’s enthusiasm to make things happen.

Gracing our cover this month are Stache’s old friends Thea de Rivera and Gab Bustos, also known as The Girl + The Bull. We talked to them about food and relationships and the craft aspect of their business, among other things. We also interviewed artisans Benjie Torrado Cabrera, Anna Gorman, and Miguel Santiago of The Barista Box. There is an article about Marc Jacobs leaving Louis Vuitton, an article about the art of music sampling, and an article about the mixed mediums of embroidery and traditional art. We also paid tribute to the great Philip Seymour Hoffman. There are many more in the following pages of this magazine, and I’ll let you explore them on your own.
We didn’t create this issue because we wanted to show everyone we know a great deal about the subject; we do not, and that I suppose is the reason the magazine turned out the way it did: an experimental endeavour. Which is not to say it turned out a failure. It didn’t, at least we don’t see it that way.

Hi. I got a copy of your "Tea Quiero" zine at BLTX. Very impressed with your design aesthetic and comic work -- and hope to see/read more of the latter after you finish with school. The work reminds me somewhat of Lucy Knisley's ("Relish: My Life in the Kitchen"). Is she an influence? -- Sonni

Lucy Knisley was not an inspiration at the time since I discovered her about a year after I finished Tea Quiero, but her work is a great - if not the best - example of what I’ve always wanted to achieve in food writing + autobiographical comics. It’s frustrating in a good way because she executes it so well but I don’t want to stop making comics about food either!

That aside, a recurring inspiration is Proust’s madeleine since I am naturally drawn to stream-of-consciousness and memory as a theme? Even for something as derpy as Tea Quiero!

Thank you so much for the kind words and checking out my work, Sir Sonni! BLTX was a very positive experience as a first-time seller and your dropping by was a big factor in that. I’m pretty excited to make more comics once I finally settle the score with my thesis!
