Hello, Fig in The Newer York

5 of my collages have recently appeared here, here, here, here and here, in LA-based online / print experimental Lit-Mag The Newer York

apart from a couple of macros on steve roggenbuck’s live my lief blog, and a handful of lovely reblogs from my wordpress pals, this is the first time my visual work has appeared anywhere other than here

The Newer York was recently named one of Dazed Digital’s ‘essential online lit-magazines’

the work they publish is weird and strong and brave so i’m really happy to have been welcomed ‘onboard’

enjoy the rest of their stuff YES-YES!!!

      thanks zoe! how are things with you?

      • zoeelitaker says:

        They are pretty good! I had a short shoot this morning and am doing some editing work this afternoon 🙂 I’d love to do a joint post again soon – let me know if you have any ideas? I could do a doodle – mildly elaborate – and you could do a collage – we send and then mix up the two together and see what happens – like you did in a recent post? Or something else?

      • Hello, Fig says:

        hey zoe, yeah i like the sound of that.. or maybe you could send me a few photos / other materials you may have? or i could do a collage and you could do a painted version or something like that? let me know what you fancy most! glad you’re good and hope the shoot went well 😀

      • zoeelitaker says:

        I’d be happy also to trade a few materials and see what we come up with! Whereabouts are you?

      • Hello, Fig says:

        i’m about 60 miles outside of london, zoe.. will email with details soon! 😀
