Getting a chance to create a magazine of my own was an exhilarating experience. I chose the name Pineal, as it is a tiny, light-sensitive gland in the center of your brain that controls dreaming and other various things, as well as something revered by many cultures as highly spiritual. That is the essence of this magazine. The psychological, mental, spiritual and earthly topics that effect all of us in some way. All of the images used were hand drawn and then processed in Illustrator, and InDesign for the final piece. The exception to this is the cover image and the thumbnails on the contents page, courtesy of Thinkstock.
