When I went to Desert Island to drop off our first Issue for them to sell, I picked up a copy of Scott C.’s Double Fine Action Comics Vol. 2. Scott signed it for me when I met him for the interview.
This Wednesday we wrapped up our interviews in New York with the always amazing Scott C. Scott invited FORGE. to his lower east side apartment, showed us art made by some of his best friends, and told us about what he’s currently up to. Scott was an incredibly chill person to talk with, and even left us with a few sketches to take home!
The interview will be released as text in Issue 3 of FORGE. and as a video in the next couple of months.
FORGE. is now in stores!!!
You can now find Issue 1 of FORGE. at Desert Island in Williamsburg Brooklyn!
Yesterday FORGE. met up with illustrator Courtney Wirth in her home studio, as a part of our New York interviews this week. Courtney gave us a look inside some of her new projects and some of the books that have impacted her since childhood.
The interview with Courtney will be included as text in Issue 3, and as a video (including several cameos with her affectionate cat Pi) on the site in the next couple of months.
Received gifts from Forge Magazine after they finished recording my artists spotlight interview yesterday. I’ll be in their next issue and you can watch Pi steal the spotlight on the internet soon.
This week FORGE. is in New York again, and we have a couple great interviews lined up that we’ll be posting on the site in the next couple of months. We started the week off by interviewing the incredible illustrator Victo Ngai!
Here’s a bonus video we made as a part of our interview with Dan Meth, where he gives us a tour of his studio and shows off a few of the books and artists that inspire him. All of the music in the video is from Dan Meth’s John Crave Bandcamp.
A few months ago we visited Dan Meth (illustrator, animator, and creator of The Meth Minute 39) at his home in Brooklyn. We sat down with him and talked about his career thus far, living in New York, working at Channel Frederator, and how his work has changed over the years. Dan also showed us around his studio, talked about what he was working on at the time, and even gave us a few goodies to part with.
You’ll be able to read the entire interview in Issue 2 of FORGE. magazine (coming out December 1st 2013)
Over the past few months we’ve learned a lot about the current and potential audiences for FORGE. We feel at this moment in time, it’s much more important for us to give everyone who would like to read our magazine the option to read it, rather than worry about how much we can make by exclusively selling the print version. Because of the financial advantages and convenience, it just makes much more sense for both the creators and readers of FORGE. to be published online. We hope that by doing this we can allow more people to experience the work and content that we put out, while also adding a level of novelty and value to the printed versions.
