Hi, my name is Mario Hugo, and Recently Rejected is an editorial experiment dedicated to unearthing and celebrating previously unseen works by creatives I admire. 

Showcases take the form of unfinished concepts, process sketches, unpublished creative, terminated artwork, and rarely seen personal projects. This is a project about old, artful skeletons and peculiar closets. 

Look out for contributors including Andrew Holder, Anna Wolf, Deanne Cheuk, DR.ME, Emily Forgot, Mogollon, Hisham Akira Bharoocha, Hvass & Hannibal, Jesse Auersalo, Jim Datz, Josh Conchran, Jules Julien, Leslie David, Leta Sobieraksji, Lotta Nieminen, Magnus Voll Mathiaasen, Melvin Galapon, Merijn Hos, Micah Lidberg, Michael Cina, Owen Gildersleeve, Petra Börner, Saiman Chow, Santtu Mustonen, Rizon Parein, among myself and many others. Thank you!
