Student Narrative

YTB, a modified acronym for Why the Beef?, is a multi-format zine in biannual editions. The publication is a collaboration between art schools MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art) and RISD (Rhode Island School of Design). Founded in 2011 by twin sisters Alice and Daphne Tarranto, TYB now engages dozens of previously unconnected students on each campus. Presented here are YTB 6: TINY and TYB 7: PATTERN.
