What’s the skinny?

Ok, I’m going to let the cat out of the bag. I’m starting a magazine, well an e-zine to be technically correct.

Each issue will feature a single creative in their creative space and run 10-15 pages. While you’ll probably see a few finished pieces the focus is to document their creative process and spaces.

Each issue will have an accompanying interview, a DIY craft tutorial and look book, it’s part The Selby part Design Sponge.

Today I got to shoot the first issue with Heather Moore of Skinny LaMinx at her studio and got to be a fly on the wall, well better than a fly because I received a cuppa tea and biscuits and there wasn’t a flyswatter in sight.

Above are a few off camera shots. I shot 180 frames, whittled it down to 87 and from that will probably feature 15-20 in the mag, whew.

I’m shooting, writing, designing and publishing it so bear with me, though I’m hoping to have the first issue out mid-August and then every two month thereafter.

    Great idea Matt! And Heather is the perfect creative to begin with..can’t wait to see/read/absorb it.
    I recently did an online course & one of the lessons was the how-to’s of creating e-mags. My brain has been on creative overdrive ever since imagining all the possibilities!
    All the best,
