Over the last several weeks, I have been traveling and working on moving the business but I was also lucky enough to squeeze in a little museum hopping as well as catching up with a number of artistic friends so I was seeing and talking about a lot of art. I thought that this week […]

Easily the all-time favorite cover and one of the best-selling issues since 2012 was the Fall 2013 – Organics issue. I think this was, in large part, due to this fabulous cover art by Kathrin Neumaier. Kathrin was the most prolific and arguably most interesting artist working in translucent polymer clay. She created hollow forms […]

Another cover that really seemed to knock people’s socks off was the Tammy Durham cover for the Fall 2014- Play issue. I’m sure it was the color and the detail but perhaps it was simply because it was about a subject very near and dear to most of our hearts: playing. And that is something […]

As I wind up the final packing of the Colorado warehouse, I have been thinking about some of our more memorable covers and issues and had to stop and wonder what a few of our cover artists have been up to lately. So, I hope you will indulge me, if you are not curious yourself, […]

After all that reminiscing about my first Facebook posts before the blog, I thought I’d bring us back to the blog itself and unveil the absolute most popular post we ever had.

Here is the original post in which I was promoting the popular Summer 2012 – Recycle and Reuse issue: With our focus […]

While still off working out the last details of moving the business to California, we’ll continue looking at past posts in the days before the blog, when I was just sharing daily on our Facebook page. This piece’s popularity surprised me a little. It is not sleek or colorful, might be slightly disturbing, and it’s […]

I’m so glad that this artist became easier to find and to read up on since the day I originally posted this. Cecilia Button does amazing work but still, she doesn’t sell it. Rather this is a hobby for her that she does in the very early hours of the day before running off to […]

Ah, some things never change. Debbie never does something just once. Instead, she does it over and over until she has extracted all the secrets and possibilities of a technique. Here is a post from March 3rd, 2012: “My Aussie friend Debbie Crothers has been going flower crazy for the past month. This pic in […]
