ISSUE 44 is here!
Members can tiptoe into the Secret Lair for a digital download!
The centerfold is in full color and is a sheet of secret message guerilla art to cut out and share around your community. Members can also download the digital file to use these time and time again.
Each month these will be created by a guest artist. This month the centerfold was created by Cassie. You can read her Lucky 13! interview HERE. (These same 13 questions will be answered on the 15th of each month in a blog post featuring that month's Secret Message Society Centerfold Artist.)
In Issue 44...
The artist leans into intuition this month and believes the things that pop into her brain or cross her path are there to be collaged into her zine. She incorporates interesting things like candle wax from a science experiment, the pattern from the bottom of a stranger's tennish shoes, a deer she found in a porta-potty and ash from the remains of a burnt snakeskin, as well as a replicated drawing of an image of Jules Verne that popped up onto her kindle and a vision of a raven that she awoke with one morning.
Inspired by the collage and cartoon artist Lynda Barry, she feels free to not explain her work, but to just run with what her life presents her with. This is how an artist goes about curating beauty. Everything is a secret message if you use your imagination.
Ready to join us on our #letsbeartists adventure? We have two months left to explore this theme! You can become a member HERE.
If you are already a member, grab an envelope to tuck all of your curated beauty into. In no time at all you'll be gluing down new collaged discoveries in the pages of your zine.
