Inside this issue:

Does the time and date we were born influence our creative process? We challenged 12 artists – each with a different star sign – to create a piece of art to find out! Find out more about the Project (and the artists!) inside this issue!

• We asked Designer/Illustrator Tanya Johnston to create a cover for our ‘Cosmos’ issue that transported us to a secret world! Inside we follow her creative process as she created the cover art for Issue 22 and find out more about her career that spans over 20 years.

• We interview Blanket's Featured Font designer Ivan Khmelevsky

• It wouldn’t be the ‘Cosmos’ issue if we didn’t include an Astronaut somewhere! We interview photography artist Elaine Duigenan who had a close encounter with Astronaut Leland D Melvin that lead to a once in a lifetime opportunity!

• We feature a fun collaboration project with artist Kaitlin Beckett who used a photograph to inspire her to create a little character we have affectionately named ‘Randolph the Adventure Hog’.

• Blanket writer, Jonathan Hulme, inhales patchouli and explores his own cosmic shortcomings to find out if your personality and future are tied to when you were born.

• We catchup with Jessica Wilson {aka Jek} as she embarks on a three month road trip around the US!

• Blanket writer, Gwendoline Watson, let’s us in on how we can experience a far-flung dusty planet inhabited by outlaws and aliens by staying on our very own planet.

• Blanket readers show us their ‘Creative Spaces’

• Re_action!
