Welcome to Issue 4! The first of hopefully many collaborations between myself and our new design director, JG. Featured himself with his amazing erotic photography it’s been a complete pleasure getting to work with such a talented and driven individual as he’s brought a new dynamic to the magazine. Rounding off the first year of SKIN we’ve got some spectacular talent featured. The photographical talents of Omar Loi and Marco Malattia, the wonderful Playboy Playmate Floriana, Hellmaiden Scarlett Storm, and pin up model Laura Lynn. Swedish artist Benjamin Ahlman teamed up with fiction writer AMW Conner for some sci fi madness. I interviewed a real life hangman, got chatting with the chief of Torn Flesh Records, Rich Saunders reviewed a suspension night in Wimbledon that sadly did not involve the Wombles and loads more!
