Splash


“Splash” is an homage to WET, the gourmet bathing magazine originally published from 1976 to 1981. Like its inspiration, it features a number of artworks and stories "devoted to upgrading the quality of your bathing experience." Published for the 2017 San Francisco Zine Fest, it is available in Chicago at Quimby’s, Joshua Tree at All Roads, and the Bay Area at Issues, Pegasus Books, Down at Lulu’s, Dog Eared Books, and Needles and Pens.
