Art up­side down

ImagineFX - - Imagine Nation -

I’m a pain­ter in Aus­tralia and picked up your mag the other day. It’s great – a fan­tas­tic pub­li­ca­tion! Here are just a few im­ages of my work. I’d re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate your opin­ion. I mainly work on a com­mis­sion only ba­sis, but these are the start of a body of work I’m do­ing for a show. Thanks for your time and, once again: great mag! An­drew Si­ambis, via email Beren replies Thanks An­drew. Great to hear that you’re do­ing a show. You def­i­nitely cre­ate strik­ing art. The only ad­vice worth giv­ing is to keep at it! Look in mag­a­zines, online and got to art classes for more ways to cre­ate the art you want to cre­ate. Be a sponge, soak up all the tips and tricks you can find, and never give up. Good luck!

I re­ally en­joyed is­sue 124. Re­gard­ing the let­ter from Kris con­cern­ing an is­sue fo­cus­ing on car­toons and car­i­ca­tures, I would whole­heart­edly sup­port this and hope enough other read­ers do too, so you can give it se­ri­ous con­sid­er­a­tion. For in­stance, I re­ally en­joyed the is­sue on comic art some months ago (117), but it did rather fo­cus on the su­per­hero genre. How about look­ing more closely at other style of comics and graphic nov­els? Chris Dyson, via email Beren replies Hey Chris! It’s funny you should say that. Our next comic art is­sue will in­clude car­i­ca­ture art and a var­ied look at comic char­ac­ters. I’d love to say more, but you’ll have to wait for is­sue 128!


I’m writ­ing about this gen­der bias topic and in par­tic­u­lar the ef­fect it had on is­sue 123. We can’t deny that this in­dus­try is dom­i­nated by males and I’m not re­ally in­ter­ested in dis­cussing why it’s the case. What both­ers me is this twisted thought
