Over at the LOAf blog, we are thinking of ways to wear bread. I found drawing this ninja a bit beyond me really:
Then I got interested in pitta breads. Anyway, there’s some better bread here. LOAf magazine has raised 89% of its funding now, but could use a few more pennies if you’re feeling benevolent.
Imagine if there was no comics magazine for 9-12 year-olds called LOAf and all the bread and children in that age group were forced to read just any old comic that might be about frogs or carrots or anything. Well, shockingly, that is happening right now. Fortunately, some illustrators are trying to make a comics magazine called LOAf to up-end this sorry status quo, and while we are waiting for it we can give it some monies to get printed and/or watch a video about animate, literate bread.
I may or may not end up in LOAf, but some extremely excellent people will be in it, like maybe this one or this one or this one. I am excited and I am not even bread or 9-12 years old.
As threatened, I have made a tiny magazine for kids: I have called it Pip and demanded that many copies be delivered to my house. The plan then is to leave little heaps of it in libraries etc and hope that some actual children end up reading it. I have learnt many things, such as that collage is not a sensible medium for representing trees whose apples are 2mm in diameter.
I’ve wanted to make a little magazine for ages as they seem to be either too branded and by-numbers, or too expensive (Anorak, Okido, etc). I particularly wanted to do it now as something more bitty and throwaway after my three-month attempt to achieve consistency in drawing Sizo’s head.
If you have Pip and you are SURE you want the puzzle answers, here are the puzzle answers.
