Thank you to the amazing contributors!
This will be the final publication by The 22 Magazine! Thank you all again for your support! Bon Voyage!
First, thanks for being you.
Thanks for all your ideas, work, events, and gracious praise you’ve sent over the past years. It is with no small amount of bittersweet sadness that I’m officially announcing that Volume 4 will be the last issue of The 22 Magazine for the time being. After much discussion over the holidays between myself and others, we’ve come to the conclusion that as much as we love this project and the people who take part in it, our current opportunities and obligations elsewhere are making it impossible for us to take the time and patience needed to make this project A+. That being said, I don’t worry. There are so many publications out there doing great things, I’m certain this drop in a bucket won’t be missed, nor forgotten.
If anything changes we will certainly be here to get publishing back on track.
We are still in the process of discussing a possible book publishing project in the next few years (similar to what we do now, on a more lax schedule.) On that note. The final volume will be released in just a few weeks and we will announce it available for print and online. We will follow with the closing up of shop.Have we told you how much fun you were to work with? Have we reminded you how excited we are to see you future work?
Well we are. What an amazing collection of creatives we’ve encountered.
Please do not give up the good work.
Don’t hesitate to give us a shout if you have questions, concerns or just want to say goodbye.
We cannot thank everyone enough who participated and contributed to this project.
Editor and Publisher,
Well folks, it’s nearly that time. How do we know? Our inboxes are full, our eyes are strained, and our tentacles are a quiver with pure excitement for what is shaping up to be one of the most amazing volumes yet. As for you, oh dearly talented creative procrastinator, we still cannot wait to see what wonders you shall send us but please keep in mind there are merely ten days left to submit your work! As always submission is 100% free and we are thrilled to meet new amazing people who will always be considered for both the print volume and the blog. Thank you to the wizards of scissors, the mind melting soundscapers, and the scribes of clipped reason who have already sent work and thank you for keeping this project chugging along with your amazing talent. Now go submit!!
Due to recent events in NY affecting artists and studios, combined with general holiday malaise, we are obliging requests for a deadline extension on Volume 4 of The 22, the collage volume. THE NEW DEADLINE IS JAN 30th, 2013. We love what we’ve seen so far and are quite thrilled to see more! Read all about how to submit HERE.
We are thrilled/charmed/humbled and just plain happy to present the 3rd volume of The 22 Magazine. To continue to support such amazing creative efforts in Brooklyn and the world and act as a collector of each contributors story is a role we never imagined we would have the luck to play.
We cannot thank enough all our contributors, interns, volunteers, funders, and everyone else who makes this magazine happen. It is with great honor that we present the contributors for Volume 3/III/Three of The 22 Magazine.
THE 22 MAGAZINE: VOLUME 3/III/THREE
It is with no small amount of honor that we present the contributors of Vol 2/II: Sign & Symbol. These works are potent and it is with great awe, wonder, shock, respect, and pride that we raise The 22’s banner to pay tribute.
The contributors in Volume 2/II display an uncanny ability to manipulate context. Artists, writers, and musicians often stand at the forefront of cultural change, reflecting visions and revisions of our shared history. The contributors in this volume prove that icons come in many shapes, sizes, and media. At The 22, it is not our job to decide which is more correct, but instead to showcase a spectrum of interpretations. From the brash innuendos of Alexander Barton, the subtle humor of Captain Panda Pants, the visceral statements of Kikuko Tanaka, the humorous apocalypses of Marcus Kenny, the bold words of Nancy Flynn, the pressing urgency of Robert Kulesz, the enduring marks of David Bailin, the mementos and monuments of Kyle Coffin and Joseph Leroux, the clockwork perfection of Emily Ginsburg, the quiet intensity of Edwin Rostron, Mario Kolaric and Thera Webb, the humanity of Jonathan Wood Vincent, the minimalist seduction of James Gallagher, the perfected symbols and sounds of Yuko Otomo and Steve Dalachinksy, the strange surrealities of Derek Larson, the gut-wrecking prose of Ventral is Golden and Damien Knightley, the unabashed beauty of Robert Lucy, to the professed arbitrariness of Colin Oulighan, this volume covers the gamut of symbology and speaks to the underlying notion that we all are highly aware of our public and personal icons-whatever they may be.
Thank you to each and every person who made this volume possible including our generous fundraiser contributors.
~Cat Gilbert, Editor and Publisher
There are some amazing (and expensive) things coming up for The 22, including the rather mad attempt at publishing THE 22 REVIEW, our first print incarnation of The 22 Magazine: Vol I and II. Encompassing a year’s work of work, this volume is testament to the first year of the 22 and the contributor’s (both in the magazine and on the web) that have made it possible.
So HOW do you get a copy? Well, one way to ensure you do it to GIVE US MONEY. There are a plethora of things we’ll reward you with for donating (besides our undying devotion) and you’ll also help stroke our fundraising egos so in the future we can do bigger and better things.
We truly thank you for whatever you can give.
