Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari

Italian-born artists Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari have crafted some of our most iconic covers to date. Naturally, we turned to them when we needed an extra special cover for the first issue of our recently redesigned magazine. When not making meat creations for us, the duo stays busy with Toilet Paper, a biannual publication that has gathered a cult following. They've also collaborated on campaigns for Kenzo fashion house and have been featured in magazines such as T, Dazed, and Wallpaper*, to name just a few.

Daniel Clowes

Daniel Clowes graduated with a BFA from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn in 1984. In 1989, he created the seminal comic book series, Eightball, which includes comics such as "Art School Confidential." In 2001, the adaptation of his graphic novel Ghost World, based on a script by Clowes and director Terry Zwigoff, was released to great acclaim, earning an Academy Award nomination for best adapted screenplay. For this issue, we're thrilled to premiere an exclusive excerpt from his forthcoming graphic novel, Patience.

He's reported on LGBT refugees in East Africa, stateless people in the Dominican Republic, and corruption in global aid. His e-book, China's Congo Plan, won the Atavist Digital Storymakers Award and was favorably reviewed in the New York Review of Books.
