More than ever we appreciate the unique, unusual, weird in life and we’re willing to share it. The 22 Magazine brings together folks worldwide.
Different viewpoints equals fun art.
New York can be an intimidating place but it can also be a home. To keep these unique, incredible artists, writers and musicians from New York and otherwise around, we need your help.
Please consider donating, even something very small. We are still struggling to meet our goal and we know there are folks out there reading! We’re not asking for much. A few dollars goes a long way. We’ve added a $5 and a $250 option to the donation and you’ll note a very awesome tote bag or t-shirt is available at the $250 level from contributor and comic artist, John Jennison.
We know, it seems like a-lot but it’s just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many amazing projects we’d like to really give a jumpstart to and your’s could very likely be one of them.
Thanks for listening again and please consider giving today.
Volume 1 contributor Jeff Burns is prolific, to say the least. Jeff is currently completing his first feature length film, That’s Beautiful Frank and has helped found When History Attacks and Gratuitous Art Films. Read more about Jeff here and check out his interview.
Well folks, it’s finally here. The first issue of The 22 in all it’s beautiful, gritty, hard wonness and I for one am glad to see it foisted upon the world. For the moment it is available to view on ISSUU and this evening I’ll have everything embedded so the tentacles of publication stretch far and wide. There are some amazing artists in here, and their words and pictures are now all yours. Over the next couple of months I’ll be shining a spotlight on each of these artists and telling you the story of why the were chosen to be one of the 22.(Look for a special post tomorrow morning as well, introducing you to the 22.)
Lots of very cool things coming up in the following months as well, including video interviews and some really terrific events involving the contributors.
Thanks again to all the folks that made this possible. We couldn’t have done it without you…and you….and definitely you.
One of GAF’s favorite parings. Matt Lavelle and Francois Grillot tomorrow night at the Brecht Forum. They wrote a beauty a while back for GAF’s series on emotions and it’s no mistake that it’s called Love.

We hosted our first two events this past weekend and boy did we have fun!
Although things were a bit haphazard after a great game of musical venue’s we were thrilled to see all of you in the same room.
We hope you enjoyed yourselves and that you will come visit the future events we will be hosting throughout the year (including an upcoming reading on May 15th with one of 2011’s “Discovery”/Boston Review Poetry Prize winners!)
In the meantime all the photos are up online and video (and very likely more photos) will be coming very soon!
VIEW PHOTOS HERE.
