REPOST from DAMN IT! Magazine :)
Hold on to your hats ladies and gentlebeans!
So there are literally only 9 days left to our Indiegogo fundraiser campaign and we have only raised a fraction of the $8,500 needed to print the magazine.
We are now in the final days and the future of DAMN IT! depends on you – we need your help to make it happen! Donate now and pick yourself up some of the amazing goodies on offer for your donations. To twist your arm a little further we are announcing the amazing line up we have for you for the very first issue.
Please DONATE NOW – We truly appreciate your help!
First up we have the amazing Greg Simkins. One look at his work with a paint brush and you will be hook, line and sinkered!
Next we have the incredible Lee Romao, who doesn’t often grant interviews but we got him! Lee has been creating breathtaking digital art for over 11 years, just check out his portraits of Popeye – so cool!
Failing health has meant that Patrick Woodroffe is sadly not too long for this world, however his beautiful art still stands as a testament to his life’s creativity. This issue will feature a tribute to Patrick through his art and the words of his loving wife and son.
Behind every piece that escapes from Adam’s talented imagination there is a story of equal goodness, and his intricate illustrations deliciously dark and detailed.
The very cool art of Chris Peters stands out amongst the crowd with his amazing use of our inner selves – literally!
There is only one word to describe Ken Taylor – Brilliant! Aside from simply being a king among men, Ken has been commissioned by musicians and movie promoters the world over to create the posters that will entice us to their shows – though more often than not it will be the poster you want more!
Poise is one lady we have long held in high regard and so we were completely stoked when she said ‘Yes!’ to being in the first issue of DAMN IT!
A force to be reckoned with on walls or canvas, Hancock’s amazing illustrations often feature creatures from the world around us rendered in awesome style.
Polar Bears of the Arctic
Each issue of DAMN IT! We will look towards conservation and environmental issues as these affect us all in one way or another. This first issue we focus on the serious decline of Polar Bears in the Artic – the only region they are naturally found.We speak to both Polar bears International and the WWF – plus we are adopting a Polar Bear for the year as well so your purchase of DAMN IT! puts more money towards a good cause!
Each issue we will also feature a charity/ not-for-profit who is doing amazing things around the world. In this first issue we are speaking to Skaistan, a bunch of brave folks who bring the joy of skateboarding to girls and boys in Afghanistan, Cambodia and Pakistan.
So that’s the line-up for now – but we do need to keep some surprises up our sleeves… and more will be announced in the next few days!
