SuperSelf-making 101 *_^ Issue 8 has arrived.

Update: Print can now be purchased through Magcloud (best quality... still working on finding more affordably priced printers though...)
The 'Twigs and Berries' typo-amended update can be downloaded here.
Click here or visit the purplemag.com mag listing page.



Update: Please Read regarding Print Issue 8.
Read on below to acquire the digital version.

Peace Starlings ^_^
Issue 8 (technically issue 9 if you include the half-sized Out-of-box issue 7.5), the first in the Dream Definition series, has finally arrived. It gave layout-issues like no other before it, but it was worth the difficult birth, from which the layout faeries are still recovering. Intent on reminding us of the importance of creating your path as opposed to letting it happen to you, the dream definition issue focusing on heart-fueled identity is glowing with metaheart light. The feisty brainchild includes Modern Myth by Tonya Moore, Valjeanne Jeffers and Dazjae Zoem, lovely talks with Aqua Islanders Startist and Bacchanal, Samax Amen, Robert Trujillo, Corinne Stevie! (painter of the cover image and femcee extraordinaire), and Valjeanne Jeffers to name a few of the gems.

Download here, and check back for the print link in this description's update within 2 weeks.

note: We're testing out a new printer who, if all works out, will have issues available as low as 6- 8 beans an issue vs. Lulu's insanity which is usually 17 beans an issue with no mark-up... If we have to use Lulu, we will, but we are steadily looking for the best alternative to stick with for the long haul. Your patience is appreciated. We've tried a few printers that just didn't work out, but we're not giving up, and this new one looks veddy promising.

Peace Inspired Sis ^_^

Thankyou!! This one was hard to layout for some reason (the page limit was rough... there was more I wanted to include this issue). I'm so glad it's well-received. The aim is to keep growing aesthetically w/ each release.
I got my feet wet with illustrating more seriously, and discovered I dig it. Practice will make perfect.
Your tutorial is beyond fabulous. I'm so glad you contributed.

Shine on Queenie
