Bragging Rights

January 31, 2006

We debated a lot of images and ideas for the cover of The Body Issue, but in the end it was Stef's friend in Jennifer's bathtub in a shot by Seng. A winning combination, clearly.

I'm especially psyched that the winning cover featured a cute Asian American man cause let's face it: the Asian man gets no love in mainstream media.

After our win, we met up with our friends from Heeb for some serious karaoke. All in all, a good weekend.
