Free Illustrated Newsletters

Even though it wasn't funded, thanks so much to those who jumped into the Kickstarter campaign. 

The campaign didn't reach its goal, but the Journal shall yet be published! I hope many of you pictorial enthusiasts still see the value in this venture and will want to participate in some way.

Please click anywhere on this sentence to receive free illustrated newsletters keeping you informed of the future of Pictorial Arts Journal:

Cheers and best wishes! So long for now.

Damnable Hour Glass


When I was a little kid, watching Wizard of Oz, it was those damned flying monkeys that scared the spit out of me. Now when I watch, it's that damnable hour glass running out of time that gives me nightmares.

Time is nearly up for Kickstarter, and even though we're not going to make the goal, it would be nice to close out at a few more percentage points to gain a little moral support.

So Important

Like an NPR pledge drive, I'm sure this is getting irritating, having me push and push this Kickstarter campaign, but I'm doing it because it is so important—not only to me as publisher, but also for the terrific lineup of editorial content waiting in the wings to fulfill the vibrant premiere issue.

First off is this fabulous cover, by Kinuko Craft, and we have her gracious permission to have a pictorial essay on her work that will be special in showing her process steps for the cover image, as well as other images. Yes, step by step!

This images shows the artwork in low-res, but the final Journal will sparkle with detail.

But ONLY if the KS campaign is successful! We've only raised 5% of the goal with 20 days to go. I understand if you can't afford a lot, but even 5, 10 or 20 dollars per pledge is helpful if enough people feel this project is worthy. ($20 gets a reward of a high-res PDF of the final journal (as opposed to the online middle to low-resolution). And early contributions are SO appreciated, to keep the ball rolling!

Over the next 20 days I'm going to risk irritating you more by continuing to tell, and SHOW, you how worthy this project is.
