Isobel – Web Illustrator Instagram – Blog Shoutout to Iz for putting up with my long and very confusing instagram messages detailing new illustration ideas for non-existant posts. Literally any sketch in any post is by her, and she pulls everything together on the site. 17, from Dorset, England, finding inspiration in the beautiful things that surround her. Drawing is her form of escapism, a way of hiding from the business of life. She draws all sorts of things – from plants and people to cosy spaces and moons. She draws to create her own little world of freedom and peace.
Kyla Rain – Co-Creator and Music Editor Instagram [pretty much single-handedly responsible for keeping Abby sane] A 17 year old music junkie from San Diego, California. She runs an online music magazine, Pure Nowhere, which covers musicians, artists, and photographers from all over the world. Where you can find her: dancing her heart out at a local show, eating an absurd amount of pasta, or blasting The Kinks at a damaging volume (probably sitting on a roof somewhere thinking about the future).
Abby Strangward – Co-Creator & Culture Editor Instagram – YouTube – Spotify – Portfolio Creator and writer for Pure Nowhere, she’s 15, from the south coast of Australia.

LOVES: yoga, surfing, reading, film-making, speaking french, rain, thai food, print and flowy pants.
