Uppercase: A magazine for the Creative + Curious

First issue of Uppercase magazine. Already sold out!

Second issue due out early July.

I was asked to contribute some work to the next issue of uppercase magazine. For those not familiar with it - the magazine is the brainchild of Janine Vangool: a Calgary based designer + entrepreneurial dynamo who appears not to sleep! In addition to producing the magazine Janine also curates gallery shows, runs a design shop and maintains a blog which is full of curiousites such as vintage typewriter manuals. I love her sensibility + sense of design which definitely falls under the category of 'librarian chic'.
Check out the website and be prepared to be inspired.

My Binoculars created for Issue 2.

My scissors will appear alongside an article on the history of Fiskers scissors (those famous orange scissors from Finland)

Hello there, Alanna. I followed Janine's tweet link over to you and very glad I did. I love your fresh, freestyle illustration! Kudos on your cheery Fiskars being featured in UC! –Amy/Aqua-Velvet
