A two-page print feature in the September 2018 issue of Playboy, where I interviewed nine artists whose work (specific to illustration, painting, sculpture, and mixed-media) had been censored by Instagram.

 

"For visual artists, Instagram is a blessing and a curse. We rounded up nine deleted posts and spoke with the artists who created them in an attempt to discern the platform's famously fine line between art and smut."
