So whats new ?
There are some new developments in issue 2, including the 3 new Paper X directories. These directories contain a real mix of works – this means more work gets in, its like 3 mini group shows. Also the directories give an overall flavour of what has been sent in.
Plus there is an extended writers platform with some fantastic pieces including Catherine Paytons Moustaches, Gemma Nelsons Ecstasy Stacy, Oli Higham – Am I of sound mind, and Chirly and Chancer the talking fish, and many more.
This issue will be looking at the Ego and sort of explains how it actually works. Read the Ego Manual for more. Plus, free inside, your very own death mask template by Ink and Mess. also Paper X asks “what kind of artist are you?”, with some flippantly hilarious results.”
