.Hi guys, it's about that time of year again for me to start designing another magazine!

For those who don't know me, my is ahmad coltrain haynes and I'm a graphic design artist from. Chicago, IL. From the beginning of the summer untill about October every year, I design a magazine that encapsulates just how i feel, ideas i have, things i've learned and so forth. 

This year's theme is "intimacy" and I want to try to get together a few models for the imagery of this section of my magazine as well as getting some interview style questions answered.

DISCLAIMER: although. i'm still getting the official look of how I want the models together, this entry may include nude photography. a link to last year's magazine that i designed will be put in. the. discription for you all to see what exactly my previous work looks like (:

After sending your email/text regarding your interest in this casting call, we will decide on what photos I need you to take and what I would like you to. submit.

I'm a graphic designer that primarily uses imagery of the human body to express. and communicate ideas. For the last magazine I met for a photoshoot with all of the models, but this year because of COVID ad new ideas, I would like to. take a different approach. Please refer to the link in this description to see last year's magazine so you can have a more clear reprsentation. of my work, words can only do so much.
