The new magazine that's receiving lots of buzz around the web is Featuring. While I haven't bought one myself, I've seen the magazine at my friend Jenn's home - it's a beautifully done magazine. Professionally printed and filled with interviews of artists from all mediums, beautiful photos and more, it's worth adding to your library.
The second issue of this fledgling publication is ready and you can read about the contents here. While shipping is a little pricey to send to the US, they are offering a discount for multiple issues, so now's the time to order both 1 and 2.
Jenn from Just Add Water Silly is now one of the contributing editors/writers and she'll be adding her delightful prose to lots of upcoming issues. From her site:
Once again, FEATURING is a highly readable, colorful and interesting spread. Of course, we have our regular sections, "In The Spotlight" where we highlight one inspiring artist, this issue we turn the spotlight on Michelle Reussand "Into The Studio" where we explore an artist's place of work. This time the artist's space we invade is Jennifer Beinhacker's. (I wrote this article!) We also have a "Featured Blogger", Tammy Garcia of Daisy Yellow and don't forget our "Theme Gallery" where we publish art from our readers, this issue's theme way The Road Ahead. There's a huge selection of other interesting articles on Zentangling, photography, Twitter & henna art, with lots more to keep you reading.
Did you know that FEATURINGmagazine wants YOUR art?? Yes we do!! With every issue we choose an inspiration for our Theme Gallery and we ask our readers to send in artwork to represent what that theme means to them. Our theme for Issue 3 is "Soundtrack Of My Life". You, as the artist, can take this sentence literally or metaphorically, we just want to see your interpretation of our theme. Click here to read all about how to enter your artwork to FEATURING Theme Gallery. The deadline forIssue 3 is November 30. There are a bunch of other ways to participate and be in our publication, read all about that here.
Hopefully you'll take a moment to check out the magazine and realize it's chock full of artsy stuff you need to know!
