Published!

Wah-hoo!
I just got an email that a piece of my art is being published in Featuring Magazine's upcoming issue.  They are running an article about mail art and put out a call for submissions months and months ago.

This is the piece I sent:



You can see a preview of parts of the magazine here.  (My piece is on page 18)
I've already pre-ordered my issue.

I'm not sure I've ever talked about how much I love this magazine.  This is only issue #4, but I've been reading since the beginning.

It's published in the Netherlands by Marit Barentsen (of Marit's Paperworld fame) and it is so unlike any of the other art journaling/mixed media publications.
It offers in-depth and original articles, interviews, and inspiration.  It's way more than just glossy eye candy.  It's a gorgeous publication, and a pleasure to hold in your hand, but it's the content that sets it apart and makes it worth every penny.  

I'm a huge fan, and hope they see a great deal of success, and even wider distribution.
Go check them out if you haven't already.  Back issues can be purchased from the website and the new issue can be pre-ordered right now.

  1. Congratulations! That is a beautiful piece and such a lovely magazine. Very different than the ones in the US that feature mostly ads!

    Great work Karen!

  19. OMG!!! You promised me you'd call me when you get published!!

    Of course, I don't check my messages.

    Anyway, I have been dying to get Featuring Magazine, but I just can't afford it right now. I just hope it's still publishing when I can. And that there are back issues!

    You deserve your places among these fabulous artists. And Marit is one of the fabulousest!
