New Season, New Issue!

Hello spring, hello new issue! Number 29 is done and is on its way to subscribers worldwide! I received my advance copies and they are lovely. Here's the stack of subscriber copies waiting to go through mailing:

Can you smell the ink from where you are?

Each issue has a couple randomly inserted bookmarks featuring the illustrations and designs submitted by twenty artists. They were sent a stack of 50 bookmarks for their own use and thanks to quick couriers, some have already received their sample bookmarks, like Gabriela Larios and Pippa Shaw featured in the photo above. It was really fun to pair the front and back illustrations with one another!

The reader participation in each issue is really integral to the magazine. The open call for the summer issue is open until the end of March and I look forward to your submission. I love the surprise of what you submit!

I'm attempting to finish up a truckload of work today so that I can spend the rest of the week at home since Finley has the entire week off from school. I have some sewing plans, too!

Have a beautiful week!

Use the code "hoorayforspring" for CAD$15 off subscriptions and renewals. Select the two-year option from the dropdown menu and save another $30 off. Combine that with the discount code and you can get a two years of UPPERCASE for just CAD$115 ($88 USD) for a North America subscriptions. That's just CAD$14.38 ($11 USD) per issue.

We've moved and had a few days to settle in. Not much crafting happened (ie none) but I have lots of plans for making things now that we're home. It feels good to be home!

I'm back at the studio today and designing the spring issue. Check out these amazing sculptures by Alexis Arnold! Look for Alexis and dozens of other book artists in the spring issue (#29) of UPPERCASE. Subscriptions start with issue 28 (the current issue, all about wire works, doodling and numerals) or you can start with the spring issue #29. Thanks!
