The Indie Mag

The Indie Mag is a non-profit magazine dedicated to all things independently done and made. We have launched our second issue featuring Nikki Misery of  New Years Day.
Mr. Misery went into the world renowned Musicians Institute graduating fully with a degree. Years of working his butt off and working the entire time, paying rent in Hollywood, wish was no simple task. All the while still having time for all of the people around him that were important.  He was just finishing up his schooling at The Musicians Instsitute and his playing was just in another league. More exciting was a new interest in his music world by the name of Ashley Costello, whom he just met at a local goth club and ended up trying out for this band called New Years Day.

 Our artist feature was Darcee Lynn a female artist from Las Vegas, NV. Having served time in the Navy as the ships Culinary Specialist, this sultry and sweet gal had a pretty amazing story to tell. The love afar with a passion for food and art crosses paths in a wonderful way in her art. The sensual play of food and body parts comes together in a retro-modern twist that just blows you away. The use of a 1950's color palate mixed with modern content creates some fantastic art that will take this gal to the top.

The next feature we had for February was the photographer Leslie Tucker. When we asked Nikki Misery about doing an article on him, he sent us some photos to use as well. We fell in love with the one that is now our cover picture, which was taken by Mrs. Tucker. I reached out to her to get her permission to use the photo. As I was trolling through her social media, photo after photo was blowing my mind. It was love at first picture. this gal had major talent and I wanted to feature her not just the one photo she took.
        Last but not least, Jackie Michel a Las Vegas female skater. An interesting story of how we happened upon this rock star of four wheels. My partner who works late nights, would frequent the grocery store after his shifts and became friends with the graveyard workers of the store. One happened to be Jackie Michels mother. This woman, Lorie, was nothing shy of mother of the decade. She battled cancer, worked nights to support her kids dreams and was an amazing soul and person all around. Always talking of how wonderful her child are and what they did, it was only suiting we do a write up on Jackie's major talents and skills.
