Since its redesign of June issue, monthly supplement CD has my illustration on the cover (confirmed up to August issue). The redesign was done by one and only Matthew Ball, who has been extra supportive of my work since he first hired me for Rolling Stone Magazineabout 4 years ago. Thank you Matthew! (And I will come visit you in Scotland soooooon.)My first illustration in Turkey has appeared on the cover of Photoshop Magazin (June issue) thanks to kindness of Sedef An.
