Our current issue is obviously full of ridiculously talented people and our models are no exception. We're not against being really good at wearing clothes, walking up and down a runway and waiting for six hours until your makeup is done, as long as that's not the meaning of your life. But for this issue we chose models who are probably too busy with their art/music/photography to even know what 'smize' means.

First up is multidisciplinary artist Aza Shade. She shoots and illustrates covers, fashion stories, beauty pages and skate features for us, makes videos, paints and has a band called Manflu. She was skating on a roof for this shoot, so close to the edge we were too scared to take a picture...
