Lose the bag!
I bought my first copy of ImagineFX in May 2014. It’s been a great resource and has gotten me drawing again digitally and traditionally. Since buying that copy I’ve gone each month to the newsagent and had a flick through the latest issue, and if I liked the topics covered I’d buy it. So far I own 22 copies of ImagineFX, plus the brilliant Anatomy Essentials special issue and the ImagineFX book SCI-FI.
But sadly I went into my newsagents only to find ImagineFX is now sealed in plastic and so only the front cover can be seen. I can no longer spend $20+ Aussie dollars per issue on a magazine based purely on the cover, I need to look inside first. This may be out of your control, but I had to let you know as a lover of the magazine. Pip, via email
Claire replies Pip, I think that you might be talking about issue 150, which came in a bag because it contained two free gifts. These would have fallen out if they weren’t bagged. We tried to put as much information as we could on the front and back of the bag so that readers can see what’s inside. Subsequent issues shouldn’t be in a bag, so you’re able to make a decision on whether you want to buy it right at the newsstand.
