Aran Quinn, designer at The Mill in NY, was asked to bring his signature illustration style to Guts Issue 2: I Know You Are, But What Am I? You may recognize the title as your favorite childhood comeback line via Pee-wee's Playhouse, but when taken out of the schoolyard, the line turns into a question of self-reflection and the lens through which Guts Issue 2 explores feelings of alienation, identity and (not) belonging.
Using only Photoshop, Aran illustrated the issue's cover and accompanying story imagery based off a brief synopsis of each of the nine stories. His usual playful illustration style takes on a naughty tone, complementing the raw and revealing confessions with visuals that let it all hang out.
