IS THIS THE REAL LIFE? IS THIS JUST FANTASY?

WELL HI.

We have a lot to catch up on. I guess I've put off writing this because there is SO MUCH.


It was always in the back of our minds that we* would do a yearly print edition of Rookie, and by the time May rolled around, we realized that we should probably get on that if we wanted to publish it in time for our September anniversary. After a call with Drawn & Quarterly (and years of admiring basically everything they publish), it was clear that they were the perfect publisher for this...book? magazine? of online content, edited by a minor. IT IS SO AMAZING THAT THEY BELIEVED IN US. I cannot think of better hands to have been in.

In early June, I spent the summer days I had at home living out the PG version of Dazed and Confused and working on the book. In late June, the Rookie Road Trip kicked off in New York. We went record shopping and banner-making in Philadelphia, got ice cream in Columbus, played arcade games in Ann Arbor, made zines and saw Girls Rock! Chicago in Chicago (and my WORLDS COLLIDED through a viewing of Superbad with my school friends and Rookie staffers), went vintage shopping in Iowa City, saw Moonrise Kingdom and crafted at Urban Outfitters in Omaha, raced go-karts in Boulder, made banners in a sculpture park in Salt Lake City, I was sick in Boise, made crowns in Seattle, got Voodoo Doughnuts in Portland, got ice cream in Eureka, got ice cream in San Francisco, hung out at the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur, and created an installation in Los Angeles, where we held a week of events.

These diaries on Rookie and tidbits on the Rookie tumblr might begin to give you an idea of how amazing it all was.

I realized recently that most of my memories are of things that never happened -- I rarely get nostalgic for actual events, just for book illustrations or scenes from movies or fantasies or unmet expectations. This summer created the kind of moments that I always thought would've only existed in my memory as fantasies. But they were real life! And they were shared with people who really wanted to be there! It's all too much for me to wrap my brain around, frankly. Last summer was when I really started transforming my room into my own world, and it became the school year's setting for feeling really happy and really sad and everything in between. Last summer I also started working on Rookie, and it became the school year's setting for a bunch of us for dealing with feeling really happy and really sad and everything in between. The installation in LA, Strange Magic, was basically a mutant teenage bedroom/gigantic shrine, with photography from The Ardorous curated by Petra on the walls, and teen bedroom arrangements by both of us everywhere else. The whole thing -- creating it, dismantling it, and all the events -- was heinously and overwhelmingly emotional in a way only silly teenagers crave and thrive off of. I'd shipped a huge box of stuff from my own room to the space for us to use, and we asked girls who came to our meet-ups to bring souvenirs from their own sanctuaries as well, and it was such a perfect manifestation of everything that's shaped how I see things these past few years that I feel like there's nothing else I can do to honor them all. Like it's time for me to get really into sports and black clothes and never watch The Virgin Suicides again. We ended up shipping home FIVE BOXES of everything accumulated, and I think I just need to put it all in a time capsule. Then I will simply lie on a mattress on my floor with nothing on my walls but a Pulp Fiction poster as a reminder to just be Mia Wallace. Then my parents will suspect I have turned to drugs, and then I will probably once again go back to all that Strange Magic stuff eventually. You can see photos of the installation here, and photos of our last event -- a prom -- here.

Rookie Yearbook One is officially out, available on Rookie, Amazon, at Barnes & Noble, and at various independent book and zine stores. Because it's a more unique situation than if I had just written a book, this is how it worked: I send the moodboards/theme/musings about the theme to our contributors for every month of the website, Anaheed and I choose from our contributors' resulting pitches, Anaheed and Phoebe edit everything and I put together the photo albums, I sometimes have a couple notes on written pieces. For Yearbook, Anaheed and I narrowed down the pieces from the site that would go in, I gave initial direction and feedback on how every spread should look, every photo story edit, every title font, every border, every illustration placement, I scanned my doodles and fabrics and handwriting for decoration, etc. Sonja decorated most spreads with her beautiful collage and illustration, and Tracy from D&Q designed it. I knew we couldn't just transfer all this content you can get for free online in a simple, minimalist layout, plus I get too excited about the look of each monthly theme, so this book was obsessively art directed with lots of love. I don't think I've slept since Rookie started last September, and I couldn't be happier. Not sarcasm!

Then I went on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to talk about it, and to teach him how to bitchface (and got to wear a lovely dress by my pal Rachel Antonoff, which had me feelin' like I could lead a ladies lunch seminar on DRESSING FOR CONFIDENCE):


I am also on the August/September cover of one of my favorite magazines, Bust, which you can get here. Support them! They rule! Anaheed did the interview, and Laia styled the shoot, and I just think often about how grateful I am that my favorite people are also the people I work with.


I suppose that's it for now? Life is very strange and very funny and I am very, very, very lucky that I get to do something I love and that you pay even a smidgen of attention to it, so thank you, times a lot, times a bunch.

*We = me, my dad (our unofficial business advisor), managing editor Lauren, and editorial director Anaheed.

the Rookie Yearbook is beautiful! just from holding it you can sense all the love and care put into it. thank you so much for creating this wonderful community online, and thanks to the road trip, offline too!

Ambar Navarro said...

So glad to see you back on style rookie! I love the Jimmy Fallon interview, and the LA rookie meetup was probably the best thing that happened to me all summer.

Xia said...

Oh my good grief, you have had a whirlwind. Congratulations, superstar! You deserve it all. I may or may not have waited outside my front door and stalked the mailman to see if he had my Rookie Yearbook. I mean, HELL-O, it's a massive accumulation of everything good life has to offer. Who WOULDN'T chase the mailman down for that? Oy.

Also, your Jimmy Fallon bit! Dat bitchfacing, so quality.

Hey Tavi,

I was excited to see when I logged on to my blogger account, that you finally posted on your blog. And reading your post really made me see how busy you really are. And read about the many wonderful projects you have been up to. When I read the editor's note back in July about the ROOKIE Yearbook One magazine coming out in September. I was screaming and jumping with joy : D

So excited for you Tavi : )
I also wanted to say how much I enjoy going to the meet up/event for ROOKIE at McNally Jackson Bookstore.
I couldn't really stay for that long ( long train ride to get back home alone : 0) I really enjoy hearing the readings and the many people that showed up to support.

But maybe one day when u come visit New York again for maybe a future event for a 2nd ROOKIE MAG. ( it would be awesome) I'll be sure to attend the whole event: D

Oh LORD! This is probably the best thing I have ever seen in my entire life. I've literally watched it so many times. I loved meeting you on the road trip <3 It was so surreal and awesome! The road trip meet up was probably the highlight of my entire existence! I'd never been surrounded by so many awesome people who I felt understood me and related to my interests and angsty teen life!

Norah said...

Tavi! It was awesome meeting you at Mcnally Jackson. I am that 12-year-old girl who asked the question about being a feminist. I could hardly believe I had enough courage to talk to you, I was so awestruck! I was smiling all week afterwards. You've accomplished so much, and you're going to accomplish so much more. And you are incredibly, amazingly, awesomely fantastic. I know this something people would usually say about Eleanor Roosevelt, but I hope to accomplish half as much as you. YOU GO, GURL. LOVE YA BUNCHES, Olivia.

Okay, I don't know why it says Norah. . .

YOU ARE POSTING AGAIN. This is excuse enough to celebrate and the fact that the yearbooks being published? GRAB ME SOME TULLE (and chiffon)I NEED A NEW DRESS. I would also like to add that I have been having serious Tavi outfit withdrawal and you should post one STAT. Thanks again for the letter by the way, it means alot.
PS; as you already know Rookie is the best thing on the planet other than polos.
PPS: I live in England but Rookie basically makes me full wholly American rather than just the half that I really am. I am rambling.

Hi my name is Ally I'm12 years old and I absolutely love fashion even at the tender age of five I would dream of going to places like fashion week, and I have been reading your blog since I was 7. I was inspired by you to start a fashion blog in august: http://drivewaystorunways.blogspot.com/. And was wondering if you had any tips to get people to read what you write after all you do get more than 10,000 hits a day. But so far the only views on my blog are the 300 from me going in and out of viewing my blog after editing or its from family members. Is that even normal? By the way i love your blog and wish you would post more because you're so fantabulous.

Yours Truly,

안녕하세요. 저는 한국 사람이구요. 당신을 정말 존경해요. 어떻게 말로 표현하지 못할만큼 존경해요. 내가 당신의 글을 읽고 완벽히 해석하지 못하는 것처럼 당신도 나의 댓글을 해석하지 못할걸 알지만 영어로 이상하게 적는것보단 이게 나을것이라고 생각해요. 난 당신처럼 뛰어난 감각과 천재성 혹은 도전정신을 가지고 있지 않아서 이런 길로 가는것을 포기하려했어요. 그러나 난 당신을 보고 당신은 천재뿐아니라 노력이 있어서 이만큼의 성과를 이루었다고 생각해요. 그래서 난 당신이 노력한만큼 오히려 더 많이 노력하려고해요. 내가 당신보다 고작 한살적지만 당신만큼 올라가거나 아니 못올라가겠지요. 그렇지만 내가 성공하려면 우리의 나이차이만큼의 일년이 아니라 십몇년 혹은 몇십년이 걸릴지 몰라요. 그렇지만 난 당신을 꼭 만나고싶어요. 그것이 지금이 아니라도 내가 성공한 후에라도. 우리 꼭 만나요.

I saw you in newspaper few years ago, you had short hair and you looked amazing. You still do. Since I've made blog I had to come here and tell you that I am impressed by your style. It fascinates me that someone so young can have such a defined style.

TAVI - at the risk of sounding condescending, I am SO proud of you! You were SO funny on Fallon, and I feel like you're living the dream. I hope you feel like all your hard work is paying off. :)

I was walking through Urban Outfitters shopping for some new skinnies and I saw your book by the checkout line. I had to stop and just hold it. It made me realize how much I miss your blog. However, I hope that you're doing well with other things and I hope that you will return and write more posts for us. :)

Hey Everyone,

I am not commenting to advertise my blog, I am merely commenting well…to make my blog known. But before anything I’d like to say I adore this blog to pieces, I read it every morning, and I love it! An inspiration! I have just started my blog, it is a mixture of Tavi Gevinsons (Style Rookie) and Rumi Neely (Fashiontoast)! My blog is called streetadore.

It will mean the world to me if you commented and gave me some feedback to improve my blog!

I believe in being yourself.. Enhancing what you have.. I believe everyone of us is blessed with something great.. and being in fashion is just enhancing that something .. making it noticeable and presentable.. And that’s why I say.. Do not follow the fashion… LET THE FASHION FOLLOW YOU….
