ISSUE 43 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 Brittany. 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 43...
The medium of pen is explored and the artist finds herself tracing around stencils as a good starting point. She also draws her beverages, creates a wheel of choices inspired by her 7-year-old (because she needs possibilities!), curates some of her favorite quotes from the first few chapters of The Night Circus, a novel she is reading, and plays a game with her daughters where they watch a Netflix show and pause it every now and then to draw a character on the screen.
Through the actions of people watching and interacting with a couple strangers, she uses her zine to process topics like complaining, suffering, changing and creating boundaries. which helps her create alternative possibilities for herself, different from what she observed in others. Art is helpful to process her collected data and gain clarity on what she personally values.
Ready to join us on our #letsbeartists adventure? We have three months left to explore this theme! You can become a member HERE.
If you are already a member, find your pens and maybe even some stencils, fold a few pieces of paper in half into a booklet, observe your world around you and we're off! It's time to create some alternative possibilities for yourself!
