Starlight Dreams (SMC Magazine Ad)

abm ad in SMC december issue 2015I’m kind of floating today—much like the island floating within the pages of Starlight Music Chronicles’ freshly released December issue. As my first-ever full-page magazine ad, the image wasn’t planned as a personal emulation of SMC, its content and editorial vista. Yet after enjoying the magazine’s latest collection of artist interviews, fashion features, tributes, reviews and more, I can see how the image is aligned with SMC’s larger vision of community connected by the incredible richness and power of music.

All helmed by Editor Candice Marshall, SMC’s skilled and spiritual center, I can see how it all points readers out there, just a bit more beyond the horizon, saying we are stardust, we are golden, and by whatever grace with which we imbue ourselves, we’ve somehow, fantastically found our way back to a new garden where the wandering can come peaceably to rest under starlight.
