Urban Molecule

After almost a year's worth of ideas, planning and running around, Urban Molecule launched into cyberspace tonight. The brainchild of editor in chief Christopher de la Torre, UM is a new quarterly webzine that will focus on modern culture, with emphasis on the visual arts, fiction, poetry, music, film and how all of these aspects of todays generation have been affected by technological advances such as the internet. This online literary journal will push the envelope and question our generation's way of life. Featuring great thinkers and fresh new voices in the arts UM is sure to develop a great following in a short time.
As an artist it is a great privilege to take part in this project, and the first issue of UM features my work as cover art. Henna Seated is a figure drawing I did while attending the Art Students League of New York early in 2007. "At long deliberation, Henna was chosen for the launch cover because in many ways it represents the publication, perhaps most seen in its pensive nature and raw quality", Christopher states in the UM blog.
Please take the time to follow the links and explore this new publication, and please voice your opinions to the the UM staff, which happes to be composed of many different talented artists.
