Greetings to all that take the time to read this!
My name is Khrystian McCalister, and I am the creator & Editor-in-Chief of DRiP Magazine. DRiP started as just an idea that I came up with in the summer of 2015, but I didn’t actually put anything into motion until the beginning of 2016. After a couple months of preparation, I dropped the first issue in spring 2016. Since then, I have gained the support of many great people and organizations that motivate me to keep grinding. The purpose of DRiP is to promote artistry and entrepreneurship amongst our generation, and inspire others to exercise their talents. Positivity is one of DRiP’s core principles, and I do my best to make sure it is translated into every component of this magazine.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to be able to meet and work with all of the wonderful and creative individuals I have come across thus far. One of the most rewarding things about this experience is watching the growth of all of the artists, designers, models, and entrepreneurs, myself included. I love to see talented people getting the recognition that they deserve, so DRiP has become a great passion of mine. I want to see this movement spread across the nation to leave a lasting impact on our current culture. We need more positive people leading our youth down the right path. DRiP is making the wave for those influential leaders that can change lives.
I want to give special thanks to everyone that has contributed to DRiP in any way. I also want to thank the people that have supported me since the very beginning, as well as any new supporters. Without you, none of this would have a purpose. Lastly, I thank God for giving me the abilities to make this happen and for leading me as I continue to make sure everything is mad fly for you guys. From here, we will continue to create and express our love of art and creativity. There is so much more to come, and I hope you all will continue on this journey with me.
Peace & Luv,
