RELEASE TBA, ETERNAL SLEEPOVER

Emma & Cybelle realized they had been on a 500 consecutive day long sleepover. With no plan on stopping the streak, the term “Eternal Sleepover” was jokingly coined. Meanwhile, at their 400 square foot apartment In New York, they started throwing art nights bringing together artists to stay up making collaborative projects, videos, photos, large scale drawings. Most of the work created from art nights are archived, but the connections & feeling in the community propelled the creation of Eternal Sleepover. Anything goes, the only rule was that everything included in the project was made between the hours of 10 pm and 10 am.

After ending their lease in New York, Emma & Cybelle went sleeping over at friends’ places in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York, & Atlanta, creating content & collaborating for an Eternal Sleepover summer. During the process, Cybelle shot over 2000 photos on film, narrowed down to fill 80 pages of Eternal Sleepover. Emma wrote over 40,000 words on the summer, which are currently archived.

In August, Emma & Cybelle went to Atlanta, to work with Shamshawan Scott who was signed on as assistant producer for this project after being a standout photographer in Jawbreaker. With his artistic direction and dynamic approach, Sham produced a 20-track mixtape (in collaboration with Jacob Theriot) featuring unreleased music from 15 artists. Sham also shot a 4-part, 40-page dream series on medium format.

In addition, Eternal Sleepover also includes work from Paige MacCready, Jheyda McGarrell, Jess Farran, Henrik Purienne, Izzy Commers, Brandon McClain, Samuel D’Saboia, Clairo, Erika Bowes, Shelby Hamilton, Kimari Hazward, Julissa Ramirez, Leo Horton, Landon Yost, Eugene Walela, Zoe Gilligan, Michael Thorpe, Carlos Semedo, Jazz Ingram, Lone The Ghost, Aquadolls, Nouria Bah, Zy Henny, Bluemarze, & more.

WINTER 2017- JAWBREAKER

After going back to New York City, Emma & Cybelle dropped the previous magazine model and were more inspired by coffee table books, and an exciting emerging independent print market. They turned the focus to portraits & interviews, and asked 60 people “who are you when no one is looking?” Messy released the findings as Jawbreaker, a 416 page project photographed by Shamshawan Scott, Jheyda McGarrell, Paige MacCready, Brandon McClain, Jess Farran, Curt Saunders, and Kehan Lai.

1000 copies printed. Sold out 2018.

2016-2017 ISSUES 1, 2, & 3 (the start of Messy)

Upon dropping out of school at 19, Emma went to Los Angeles to work on what would be the first magazine for Messy. Cybelle, 16 at the time and taking night school, came down from Portland. In three weeks they put together Messy Issue #1: the Self Issue. This magazine established a curiosity and defiance of the magazine norm both girls had grown up with, and asked the reader to redefine the self.

Over the next year and a half Emma & Cybelle also curated & created Messy Issue 2: Rebel, Rebel, and Issue 3: Home. Both followed a similar format to the first issue, 130 pages, reimagining teen girl magazines. They were submission based, and edited and curated by Cybelle & Emma and graphic designed by Michelle Peck.

The first issue printed 2000 copies and was released and sold out in 2016.
