The cover of the latest HYPEBEAST Magazine Issue features exclusive artwork by Los Angeles-based artist Matt McCormick, which brings a tactile feel due to a grit effect over the charcoal drawing. The cowboy is an unofficial symbol of the human desire to reconnect with nature; manifesting in the obsessions with succulents and nature documentaries – the urge to slow down and to discover how we’d fare on our own without being hurried along by any external forces. The Rhythms Issue shows what may happen when we are siphoning every second of our time into serving a purpose.
"Ours is a world where we can never go fast enough: rifle with generalised anxiety and burnout plaguing an overworked, over connected population. When else in history were we able to learn a new language, answer an email, make dinner plans and walk a friend through an emotional crisis within the same 5 minutes?" - HYPEBEAST
