For anybody wondering why Yassi Pressman's shirt on our Feb issue is free of any statements or graphics (despite that trend going on an all time high), the reason is simple—that space is reserved for you. We're dedicating the entire month to celebrate self-love, respect, and empowerment. With all the hate and negativity on the internet these days, we thought why not spread more positivity to start the year right?
When we revealed our cover we asked you, our readers, to write, doodle, draw, or create artwork on our cover with an inspiring or positive message or word you'd like to put out there on Instagram with the hashtag #WriteNowWithPreview. With the help of a few of our favorite artists, we saw hundreds of entries under the tag over the weekend. From intricate illustrations to cute and feel-good doodles, here are our favorite works so far.
