Born out of a single great idea, the Tepsic magazine is a poster-sized, pictographic publication that covers everything about your favourite musician, rappers, MC’s and groups. Now you must be thinking what is so special about this magazine. Well, here’s the catch – all the pictures covered in the magazine are taken by the artists and celebrities themselves. The magazine does not feature any album reviews or interviews; it’s just a creative platform for celebs to show their lives in pictures.

This large format publication is the brainchild of Morgan Tepsic, who sends out customized disposable cameras to artists and asks them to document their lives. All the poster-sized spreads are private and never before seen images. The first issue of Tepsic got released in the spring of 2012 and the magazine currently prints bi-annually.

Till now, they have printed images taken by artists such as The Flaming Lips, A$AP Rocky, Anthony Bourdain, Das Racist, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Toro Y Moi, Twin Shadow and Casey Veggies etc. They even managed to send a camera to Korean Pop Star, Jay Park in Seoul. He sent them pictures while on tour as well during his time at the studio. With the magazine gaining in popularity, many more up-and-coming artists will be featured in the future issues.

Currently the fourth edition of the magazine is under production and a kickstarter campaign has been started for additional funds. The amount will cover the printing and camera expenditure, as well as the cost for a new eco-friendly bend-proof magazine box. Backers who pledge more than $250 will get a chance to be the guest-editor for the next issue. They can select the photographs from the artist’s camera and will also receive full credits for their contribution.

The magazine is an excellent concept and a great platform for artists and celebrities. Fans will also get a glimpse of the personal lives of their favourite artists.

Tepsic will also be coming up with an exclusive collection of shirts and stickers for all the previous issues. Head over to their website and purchase these once in a lifetime collectibles before they go off-air.
