LOUIS - TOAST FTV
SUPER LIMITED zine from a true graffiti outsider.
In his signature minimalist style, Toast FTV sings the song of Louis Shotwell, a name emblazoned on the cover, in a disembodied straight-letter, and on a paint stained hoodie. The zine mostly pushes Summer nostalgia in upstate NY with graff from Flood The Valley heads, YME, Noxer, Evak, and Toast. This juxtaposed with 40s of High Life, Chinese take-out food, redacted faces, and trashed locales. All this could seem stereotypical, but the placement, negative space, and pacing read like fuzzy memories from an aging youth, growing up 100 miles from NYC.
