The Animals Issue has finally landed! I have been very busy putting this issue together over the last few months. For this 11th issue, I have decided to set in the ‘Animals’ theme as we all love animals, right? Issue 11 consists of 16 carefully selected exposures including Gabriela Romagna who is featured on this issue’s front cover, followed by 10 detailed interviews. This magazine is so jam packed with so many awesome works, a must read if you’re bored or simply want to know what goes on behind each of stunning illustrations.

INSIDE THE ANIMALS ISSUE
Exhibition: LOLCAT – TEH EXHIBISHUN
I visited LOLCAT Teh Exhibishun at Artefact Gallery in Windmill Street, London in February. The gallery was filled with amazing yet funny illustrations created by over 40 different artists. I had a quick chat with Jenny Theolin aka Soapbox & Sons, the brain behind LOLCAT and asked how it started.
Question: Do you have a pet?
As part of The Animals Issue, I have decided to create simple statistics based on one simple question; Do you have a pet? I asked 28 artists (including Jenny and myself) if they have a pet, the outcome is very interesting and certainly opened my eyes!

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
I really love this magazine. More like a fanzine to me, but lovely anyway! I can’t guess why this is not a lot more famous. You deserve it!

It’s looking great, loving the animals issue too. We have some big fans of dinosaurs over here, and giraffes, and cats (obvs)

I absolutely LOVE it! I can’t find one thing I don’t like or that I love more, I want to hang all the illustrations on my wall.
