As creatures of habit, we create systems to provide comfort and ease. Be it life’s trials, we all find escapism in some type of routine. This issue is an exploration into all of the things that make us the same. We exist in a culture that obsesses over art while ignoring the madness of artistry. Not everything we see is what it seems and this magazine is positioned to offer truth to those who seek it. We’re all just trying to find the perfect footing between life and vice.
