Cool Uncle Magazine

an ode to that one uncle that encourages you to be yourself

Cool Uncle is a creative lifestyle magazine that I developed & designed, featuring my original artwork and photography. Just as any cool uncle would, the magazine embraces individuality and free thinking. Here are a few of my favorite spreads that demonstrate the ethos of the project. Enjoy!

A Doper Donald. Mixed media caricature illustration on cold pressed board.
I wrote this article to celebrate the Donalds in this world who are better than the one who was in charge. Donald Duck is next.

This department is a compilation of modern terms that I consider to be "mumbo jumbo."
