< Previous issue | Next issue >

“COVER: This month’s cover is by fabulous Charlie White of the Fluid Drive Studio. That’s Fluid Drive Studio. F as in flotsam, l as in low rent, u as in you get the idea. Charlie White is the husband of fabulous Linda White which is how he got his start. Charlie looks like a squeeze toy, sounds like a squeeze toy, paints like fucking Ingres (look it up). Charlie came up with the idea for this cover during a chat with kenny Kneitel (also of the Fluid Drive Studio) and another young man too modest to mention his hame here.”
