I’ve been a fan of Brooklyn-based Slice Magazine ever since  the idea was floating around the brilliant minds of Maria Gagliano & Celia Johnson (also know as my friends + zombie editor). Twelve issues later, the magazine has had tremendous success, increasing in circulation and award-winning writers, while also connecting many first-time authors with agents and books deals, bridging the gap between emerging and established authors by offering a space where both are published side-by-side.



I was very happy to be the illustrator for their newest project, In The Telling. This latest installment from Slice is a weekly literary podcast hosted by Tim Mucci and read by various authors. It’s pretty excellent, have a listen!
