Future You No.2 features six original pieces of short fiction and artwork by writer Nada Alic and artist Andrea Nakhla. Each story examines the suspension of disbelief so often required for romance through such means as: signs, astrology, dreams and secrets, etc. At first glance, each character’s rejection of reality in favor of their own, sweeter version of it feels absurd and obvious, but endears us to the universal desire to do just that: manufacture our own realities to avoid heartbreak at all costs.

Phoebe Kiely

Phoebe Kiely

Phoebe Kiely is a Manchester-based artist. Since graduating from Manchester School of Art, she has been constantly shooting numerous rolls of film. Taking inspiration from the world around her, the work she makes is edited to a highly condensed version, which allows Phoebe to respond and understand her surroundings.

She could be labelled as a street photographer, however, what Phoebe photographs is usually the last thing most people would point their camera at. She relies on an instinctive approach to taking photographs. Sometimes looking for human presence in the scenes she shoots, she also looks at the forgotten, seemingly post-apocalyptic environments.

Charlie Soffe | Castor and Pollux

Charlie Soffe is a Birmingham-based illustrator who runs an independent skate clothing brand called KOTB, which allows him to combine his passion for skateboarding, clothing and illustration into one entity.

In doing so he found himself depicting the story of Greek duo Castor and Pollux, one where the two brothers must alternate between Olympus and Hades forever. The concertina allows you to enter the barren limbo state the two brothers lurk. He has created an uneasiness between the two brothers and the viewer with the long spacing between each illustration. Lovely stuff. Feature
