The Magnolia Review is an arts and literature magazine that publishes short stories, poems, art, photography, comics, and reviews. This time, their latest issue includes two illustration pieces I’ve done – “Two Ladies” and “The Star Sage.”

You can download it, for free, at this link.

Right now issues are only available online, but the editors are working to get the magazine to print.

I hope you enjoy the magazine and the art I made for it!
