Wow! just saw a mention of the book How Sassy Changed My Life on NotMartha.org. Looks like someone made a book about the rise and fall of the former great teen magazine, Sassy.
In 1993 I was chosen to be one of the photographer’s for that year’s Sassy Reader Produced Issue. Every year they would set aside one issue to be written, styled, photographed, modeled, designed etc. by all readers. They flew us out to New York where we spent a week picking out clothes, doing photo shoots, hitting the town. It was fun, not quite as glamourous as I had imagined, and I naively thought it would be a big break for me.
In the end, my career has turned to graphic design and illustration, which I love! I’m glad I was I was lucky enough to be chosen.
Here’s me and the other contributers in that issue.
Some of my photos from the issue.

Oh my gosh, I remember that issue! I think I had them all. How cool that you got to be part of it.
