Newspaper of the Month: Year in Refuse

Year in Refuse illustration newspaper by Alex Westgate

Our Newspaper of the Month for February is Year in Refuse from illustrator Alex Westgate. Proof that one person's trash is another's treasure, this digital tabloid newspaper is a collection of rejected concepts – ideas that were "too weird, unsettling and otherwise unpublishable," says Westgate. We love them all!

When the Toronto-based artist's work isn't getting rejected, it's being used by the likes of the BBC, Reader's Digest, AT&T, and the Washington Post. Westgate says he enjoys making images that are "both optimistic and irreverent" and word is he's been working on a new zine.

A few copies of Year in Refuse are still available for sale in Westgate's web shop and he's throwing in an awesome "Bad Seed" patch with every order. Now, who could say no to that? Thanks for printing with us!
