In between downloading/processing over 2000 photos from our autumn trip, I'm working on the upcoming premiere issue of Autumn Brilliance digital magazine, to debut fall 2020.
So thrilled to be working on this! I feel that with the unexpected demise of Art Doll Quarterly, the Halloween art community really had nowhere else to go to showcase their works. I spoke with many artists at Bewitching Peddlers of Halloween who expressed a shared sense of sadness and disappointment over this unfortunate event. We all looked forward to seeing what new wonders would be in that magazine's pages in every new fall issue.
Since I worked in publishing and promotions for over 20 years, I've decided to step up to the plate and publish this on my own. It will be digital for now, with the hopes of possibly having printed editions in the future. And, also, for now, it shall only be a once-a-year edition (that being autumn and Halloween of course) but a big, special one at that, filled with not only art, but all things Halloween and autumn, including articles on Halloween lore, old time recipes, a travelogue of interesting places all across the US, live events, and more.
Now as for all the amazing artists I got to meet along the way during our road trip and particularly at Bewitching Peddlers of Halloween, I'd like to say, welcome to your new home! We really are just a big interconnected family, when you think about it, so let's all congregate here and show the world what we do!
