Submission Guidelines Reminder

Hey everybody, we’re extremely excited that we’ve received so many submissions for issue 4 already, but we’d just like to remind everyone of the submission guidelines. They’re not incredibly strict, but adhering to them would help out a lot in the review process and increase the chances of your submission being included. Thanks!

Due to the amount of submissions we’re getting, it may take us longer to reply to submission emails. We’d also like to mention that if your submission doesn’t meet several of the requirements, you may not receive any further information.

You can read all of the submission guidelines here!

The theme for Issue 4 has been announced!
We’ve decided that the theme for Issue 4 will be SENTIMENTAL. Submissions for Issue 4 will be accepted from today until May 1st. Everyone has two months to create and submit photographs, illustrations, etc… Make sure your submission relates to the theme, and follows the guidelines on our submission page. Issue 4 will be released in the first week of June, the same day submitting to Issue 5 will begin.
If you’ve already sent us work, feel free to resend it, or send in work that you feel more closely relates to the theme. Remember, we’d prefer if the work was produced specifically for the issue, but if you do have older work that you feel relates to SENTIMENTAL it will still be considered.
You can also go read Issue 3: ALLURE online now!
GOOD LUCK!

FORGE. Issue 3: Allure

We just finished pulling together Issue 3 earlier this week! This issue has turned out to be our largest issue yet, weighing in at almost 100 pages, so it’s taken a little longer to finish than we first anticipated. Despite the slight delay, we’re incredibly proud of all of the submissions and interviews that were included in it, and we’re really excited with the end result.

Issue 3: ALLURE includes submissions by Tim Frazier, Jennifer Muir, Declan Lee, Marta Monteiro, Clinton Van Inman, Eugénie Archambault, Hiromi Hatakeyama, Laura Claire Vogelgesang, Sophie Metcalfe, Tais Sirole, Naomi Nakazato, Dany Reede, Zainab Hassan, and Kent Andreasen. Issue 3 also includes interviews with John Malta, Scott C, Victo Ngai, and Courtney Wirth!

Back in November, FORGE. met up with New York based editorial illustrator Victo Ngai at her Manhattan apartment. We first noticed Victo’s incredibly detailed and intricate illustrations through her work for The New York Times and The New Yorker, and she quickly became one of the first artists we sought out to interview as we were planning our 1st issue. Although it took us about a year to get into the same room as each other, the wait was definitely worth it. Victo talked about her experience going to RISD, how she approaches developing a style, and how she ended up leaving Hong Kong to study art in the U.S. Victo was incredibly kind and easy to talk to, and gave us some great advice about art school and finding work afterwords.

You’ll be able to read the entire interview in Issue 3 of FORGE. magazine (coming out March 2014)

Here’s an interview we filmed back in August when we visited one of our favorite contemporary painters Jen Mann at her home studio in Toronto! I met Jen on a beautiful sunny day at a train station in the Toronto suburb of Mississauga. Once we got to her current (and childhood) home, the two of us drank tea and talked about what she was working on while she showed me a few of her enormous and incredibly detailed portraits. Jen’s warm personality was about as nice as the weather outside, which made the whole experience all the more delightful.

You can read the whole interview we did with Jen in our second issue now!

FORGE. Issue 2: Solace

This week we finished pulling together Issue 2 of FORGE. and it is now available to read online! We’ve been working really hard on this issue since June, so it has felt truly wonderful to finally have a finished version of it. Obviously we couldn’t have done it all without the incredible pieces that each and every artist spent time making for us, and the enormous support all of you have given to this project. We hope that each of you can enjoy this issue as much as we have enjoyed making it!

Issue 2: SOLACE includes submissions by Courtney Wirth, Jonny Ruzzo, Alexander Derwick, Maxine Crump, Sid Black, Lucas Lasnier, J. Powers Bowman, Ben Mcleod, and Zeke Rothfels. Issue 2 also includes interviews with Caldwell Tanner, Jen Mann, and Dan Meth!
