Megazine’s Loren Kramar and Daniele Frazier explore tape faces
Over the years, Megazine has found itself in quite a few New York City hotel rooms. Arguably the greatest result of these overnight stays is the hundreds of drawings created by a colorful cast of talented friends and strangers. It is our pleasure to share with you the first installment of Megazine’s Hotel Drawings!
Drawing by Katya Tepper
Drawing by Ben Seltzer
There’s a lot more where that came from!
Let us state it explicitly: Megazine loves sex. Up until this point, however, our erotic desires have only managed to manifest visually. For the first time on the site, we give you a taste of the sexy and the written. Put on your silk pajamas, light a candle, and enjoy Bennett Webster’s “First Mating.”
Here is a selection of drawings by February’s COMIX Contributor, Austin English!

Here is a series of photos that were contending for the cover spot of our March issue. The idea behind the shoot was college basketball’s March Madness. We made special hands for Mr. Madness out of foil and spoons that were lathered in peanut butter and bird seed to attract the friendly fauna of Washington Square. To everyone’s dismay, the critters didn’t come! A failure in more ways the one, these photos were never going to see the light of day! Enjoy!
That’s Mr. Madness laying in the dirt!
There he is sitting on a bench!
There he is trying to attract a squirrel!
Mr. Madness gets tired too!

As you can imagine, working on Megazine creates a lot of run-off: writing, photos, videos, strange drawings, failed features, bad ideas.
We can’t help but share these things with you. Fortunately, the internet really facilitates this type of impulse. So check back early and often!
