You could easily imagine finding Anthony Quintal flipping through his copy of Frank Ocean’s Boys Don’t Cry zine under the hazy red glow of the colored lightbulbs he’s swapped for in the light fixtures around his room, while an Amy Winehouse vinyl serenely spins in the background. If you know Lohanthony as the prolific content creator he’s grown into over the years (and really—who doesn’t?), you more than likely could have conjured a similar image without much prompting, but maybe a Lana Del Rey or Stevie Wonder record instead. Read more about his story and other amazing creatives including Diana Amado, Nicholas Pakradooni, Sundara Karma, Women’s March and more in our February 2017 — Expression issue.

COLLECTIVE WORDS — EDITOR’S LETTER // The year of 2017 so far has been rough from waking up to upsetting news and more tears but it reminds me of how lucky we all are to have a voice in what’s going on in the world. Yes, I go to sleep even more worried than before but more than ever I’m appreciating the time I have with my family, friends and loved ones in my life—it’s all about those moments. Did I expect that life after university was going to be smooth sailing? A part of me felt I knew exactly what the ‘real world’ is like and trust me, it’s a tough love type of environment. I value the words: hope and freedom to express myself through creative projects and meeting other incredible people who share that drive to do better, learn more and challenge themselves. My copy editor (also, my sister!) Sophia really helped me bring together the entire concept of using red tones. We went to grab lunch with our fellow cover gem, Anthony Quintal and he shared that his favorite color is red—the rest of the content is for you to see. Thanks for reading Local Wolves, my team and I appreciate all your replies and comments—now go on, and enjoy this issue! – Until then, Cathrine Khom.
