    We've had six amazing issues of EMG-Zine now, and we're halfway through our first year!

    This month, because we don't do things by halves, Joleen Flasher talks about balancing an art career and a dayjob, I give you some problem-solving for print files, Liiga takes us further into digital art, Ursula tells us how to get a sketch to a final working surface, Janet gives us more dirt on papers that are good for us, Annie takes us through part two of color theory, Marina goes into colors, metals and furs of heraldry, we've got a gallery of art, some wallpapers, reviews, and more than half a poem!

    Be sure to check out the EMG news - we've got a three-day sale coming up later in the month, plus some down time while I go paint in the mountains, and there is a one-week extension on artwork and fiction for the July issue of EMG-Zine. If you have some existing work in the theme of mischief, please consider submitting it!

    Be well,

    Our opening graphic this month is thanks to Mandy Roberts - see the full piece in the gallery! The half an apple in the corners comes from one of my pieces.
