We had Gabriel Coke draw SVCreates Laureates in the 2020 issue 12.3, which was great, but not for the cover. I thought that Cuong Nguyen’s portraiture style, which has a classical old-school feel, would be an excellent juxtaposition with budding 17-year-old musician Jack Pavlina—and a great way to showcase both of these artists. In addition to Cuong and Jack, we present Ryan Carrington, Krista Fay, Dox Black, and Derrick Sanderlin—each with unique styles worth exploring.
