Novice recently announced its fourth maga-book, a collection of some 400 pages of only the best-curated artworks, stories, literary works, essays, photographs, and features from local poets, writers, graphic artists, photographers, and illustrators.

Like its forerunner issues, the fourth issue of Novice also has a double cover. The fourth run features local artist Diende Noel’s winning artwork depicting the theme of “migration,” and francisgum, an LA-based multidisciplinary creative whose work has been featured locally and internationally in publications such as British Vogue, PhotoVogue, Mega Magazine, and Nylon Manila.

Inside, the maga-book has exclusive interviews with writer, storyteller, and content creator Mark Raywin Tome; designer-photographer Patrick Kasingsing, editor-in-chief of Kanto and co-founder of Brutalist Pilipinas; aquascape artist Jay Aromin; creative director and graphic designer Sean Eidder; digital artist Denver Balbaboco; type designer John David Maza; and cover contest winning artist Diende Noel, a multi-hyphenate creative, collage artist, writer, and graphic designer.

Novice, whose creative and art directors are among the brains behind the Creatives With Leni campaign and artbook, is a passion-driven project aimed at promoting the spirit of creativity. It also aims to strengthen the country’s artistic community by being a platform that celebrates young and aspiring creatives who showcase their talents as they make their marks in both local and international scenes.
