Pick your Poison
Whether you are a crazy painter, a hoarding assemblage artist, encaustic lover, street/graffiti wannabe, printmaker dynamo, sculptor, photographer, film maker,etc. There is a magazine for you!
Which are your favorite Arts Magazines and why?
Do you get annoyed when you buy an arts magazine and it is filled with 80% advertisements and promotions? I know magazines make a lot of revenue on this but come on, we don't buy the magazine for the adverts now do we! We want content, interesting stories..RIGHT?
I like 'Artist Profile'. Its an aussie mag but filled with interviews with up and coming artists. The ydescribe their process,motivation and there are great images to look at as well. There are ads, but hey they are about art stuff so I am interested. Loads of content and they have a good web page
too be honest I dont read them any more and yes mostly I find tooo many adds annoying,
when I did look ar arty mags it was usually architectural ones as well as interior/jewellery/photographic design and I have been known to enjoy Harpers Bazaar for its design and photography but the mags politics suck .....all that fur and child labour sewing on sequins on famous brand runners etc ;) ........I have a passion for exhibition catalogues tho:) ..
I generally like to look at other styles of creative pursuits other than what I am working on /with at the time sooooo I enjoy engineering mags ;)..joke joyce!
I love looking at boat building orthographic drawings...now that IS true:: ....and i totally go ballistic with unashamed pleasure over a movie's list of credits sorta joking ... i love fonts ..!
I am ALWAYS the last one to leave the theatre /movie
i watched a video last night in which the artist used a harper's bazaar and citrasolv! looked interesting
diana oh sounds intresting.. would you be able to post the link ???
gary its a 'high'end fashion mag or rather its a mag full of high end adds ;) aparently there is a lot of soul selling to be able to pay for the fee to have a full page spread ..but I, m a tad cynical ..so please excuse me :) the fashilon photography is amongst world best ...very Bizzare often :)
