The latest surprise package to land on my doorstep, Plazm Magazine. This thing is heaaaavy – I’m bicep curling it right now. It’s pretty new too, it’s only been around since 1991!!! Yeah, that kinda speaks for itself. The Portland-based magazine has had contributions from roughly a billion artists and musicians (proof)! Thanks Sarah, you’re awesome!
Another great magazine showed up at my door, Living Proof. It’s got a nice selection of art and photography, even some design. Interviews with Ron English (cover art), Mars-1, Kevin Lyons, and House Industries among others. Great print and paper quality, and it’s as thick as an Archie double digest. Oh yes, this little guy’s FREE!
Two photo contest giveaways to tell you about from two magazines I like. Theme Magazine is giving away a Rome women’s snowboard! Just send them your best photo from this snowboard season and they’ll pick their favourite submission! You only have until January 31st to get it in so hurry! Send photos to: email@example.com
Beautiful/Decay is also hosting a photo contest to celebrate their new apparel site – send them a photo of yourself wearing any B/D apparel and they’ll send you a free t-shirt. Deadline: February 20th. Send photos to: firstname.lastname@example.org
I was recently asked by my friend Bob Kronbauer to be a regular contributor over on his new site, Club Mumble. Bob is the talented guy behind the Little Giants series which I mentioned before and I jumped at the opportunity to be a part of his latest project.
To give you an idea of the Club Mumble roster, let me just rattle off a few names: Michael Leon, Thomas Campbell, Don Pendleton, Angela Boatwright, Geoff McFetridge, Andrew Pommier, Kevin Lyons, Todd Bratrud… you get the idea, this list is no joke. If you’re into the art/skate scene you’ll want to bookmark it immediately.
