Shade Zine

Founded by Azha & Apryl, Shade was cultivated out of a friendship between two creative people who saw a void in the world of internet art. Shade Magazine is a multimedia space for up & coming, young artists. Since our start in 2014 we are happy to have helped in successfully paving the way for other online zines to be created and run by yung people of color.
