So here I am, creating Bear Beautiful.
I knew this would not be an easy project, but I just kept imagining how beautiful it could be, unable to let it go. Til eventually I listed all the reasons I couldn't create a magazine. Wrote them all down then one by one ticked them off, starting with a graphics design course to learn the art of publication printing. Now with the support of many wonderful artists we have created issue 1!
My vision for a high quality, luxurious magazine created from the best quality paper, beautiful photography of the most amazing bear artistry and wonderful creative layouts is real! This magazine will bring a new level of sophistication to our industry. I hope every artist aspires to be on the pages of Bear Beautiful. Many artists I have spoken to, say they would love to see their work showcased in such a way. Bear Beautiful will showcase bear artists, where artist create, storage and organizational ideas, and of course projects. While I will include bear patterns, I will also include easy sewing projects that bear artists might find 10 minutes on the weekend where they need a break from bear making, and can create a treat for themselves or as a gift for their crafty friends.
While this started off as a one time publication, I have found myself creating such a beautiful world within these pages that I want more. Collecting every beautiful issue. If you love Bear Beautiful and want more please email me, your comments, ideas, I would love to hear from you. Please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
