I founded Ammo Magazine and publish a range of printed art books, magazines and other items under the Ammo brand. This was the first in a new series of magazines focusing on interviews with leading artists from across the world.
The magazine is A5, litho printed, perfect-bound and 84 pages long. All the Ammo output is printed on high quality paper and this issue was no exception. It features uncoated stock with a 300gsm cover and 160gsm internal pages. Each copy also comes with an A5, 2 colour screen print featuring artwork by Rilla Alexander expertly printed by Yeti Screen Print.
For the cover I was lucky enough to enlist the help of a Canadian artist whose artwork I'd long admired - Winnie Truong. Winnie's incredible artwork was perfect for the cover and I also interviewed her inside the magazine. Other interviewees included Felt Mistress, Isabel Greenberg, Kristian Jones, Luke Drozd, Sandra Dieckmann and TADO! There were also several double-page artist profiles featuring Eva Galesloot, Caleb Simmons, Mat Roff, Monica Garwood, Rob Kemerink and Sonny Ross. The quality of the artists involved was outstanding leaving me with the difficult task of deciding what images to leave out.
I take on a variety of roles for each publication - from deciding on the format and paper specifications, to selecting and contacting artists, liaising with printers, maintaining and updating the website and promotion via social media.
