Issue #2 Sneak Peek

HERE!*

 

 

*We pretty much don’t have anything else to say about this, because we’re so excited.

Layout Playlist*

We announced this on Facebook, but last Friday I got the final edits back from Tadd and Ian, made the last changes, and sent Issue #2 to the printer.

(BTW: Huge, huge thanks to all our courageous copyeditors.)

In honor of this momentous event, I’d like to give you a sampling from my Layout Playlist.

 


The video of this song is fantastic, but embedding is disabled.


I love Rihanna’s hair.



*And by playlist I mean I listened to each song on repeat for one hour, realized I’d been listening for an hour, and changed songs.

Boom

The Final Count

Thank you to everyone who helped out during our July Subscription Drive: the folks who hyped it, the many wonderful people who offered to donate things, and the many many awesome people who got subscriptions.

Now, though, it’s time for the final count. Did we get enough subscriptions to declare an International Artifice Magazine Pizza Party Day?

Ellipses, for suspense:

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

…………………..YES!

We got 64 new subscriptions total, 22 of which signed up on Mohawk Madness Tuesday.

What we have learned from this: A. You guys are awesome. B. If any of you need a quick fundraiser, purple mohawks are the way to go.

Since August 1 has already passed, we are now officially declaring Friday, August 6th International Artifice Magazine Pizza Party Day. We will probably be quietly celebrating with a few drinks at Inner Town Pub (“The Home of the Arts”); you’re welcome to join us.

International friends, please feel free to post messages about I.A.M.P.P.D. in your own language in the comments below. We’ll get you started, in Spanish: ¡el Día Internacional de la Fiesta de Pizza de Artifice es la fiesta mejor! Vamos a comprar una pizza para celebrarla.
