Sorry i’ve been absent again, i’ve lost the knack for constant posts on here. Though to be honest all i’ve been doing over the holidays is bust a ball for portfolio time…scary stuff. In between the ball busting and festive family fun time i had a little break to read ‘Oh comely keep your curiosity sacred’(Continuing to share the creative love) I only came across it while in a shop buying maps, and had a flick through and thought it looked new and different.
I was right this art magazine is very different from the ones i read late last year, those are full in your face pure art. Whereas oh comely is more crafts and illustration but is beautifully laid out with great random content. Such as their favourite light bulbs, a pen race over the pages & playing hide and seek in public places. With fan mail, music and recipes thrown in as well. Each piece just fits so well with one another, its very comforting. I love other art mags and find them inspiring but sometimes it makes me feel slightly intimidated, whereas this is just a comfortable relaxed easy read that has me inspired minus the intimidation. Its quirky and you can tell that those that work on the magazine are having fun from the content they produce, its light hearted..i dont know of any other magazines to write about their favourite light bulbs!! (Pure genius)
The layout of the magazine is very white, crisp and clean with lots of space. Nothing is fighting for attention on the page, even the brief double page of fashion is photographed beautiful minus the pouty model. I find it to be different and refreshing, quietly confident knowing of its place in the world. I would recommend this magazine to anyone who is even the slightest bit quirky or artistic, aimed at women but still worth a look for the photography and illustrations.
