invited contributors to consider approaches to critical thought and comment,

appealing to all thinkers and makers to construct, critique and collaborate.

    Chris – good to hear from you. I’m not sure I understand your particular frustration, and I’m interested in knowing more. Is your ‘criticism’ above a supplementary reflection on your own work, or one concerning its representation in the zine?

    I thought it looked good in the printed edition. Although I did desire some context or blurb!

      Its a reflection on my work really, and I should have tested its representation at zine-scale. Although I agree with the need for some text, the portrayal of it as a sketch could have been developed through the image.

      It’s conclusion as a painting is being finished at the moment and will pop up on a blog of some sorts.

    I feel somewhat frustrated that i’m using my sketches publication as the point of serious self critique. The drawing was used like a sketch but scaled down appears more like a finished drawing, and a wretched computer drawing at that. Thankfully it looks better printed and it marks a starting point.

    Here’s to the next issue.
