Hi all, I wanted to share a bit of exciting news with you all. Issue #5 has been so well received with lots of word of mouth that I have just had to order a THIRD printing! So, if you recently ordered, please be patient while I wait for them to come in and get them bound. If you order both issues 4 & 5 together they will ship when the 5's come in. Thank you to everyone for your support and patience as I have tackled this project on my own. Also, I have had MANY inquiries as to ordering BACK ISSUES of volumes 1-3 and Eye Candy. I have decided to release my stock on back issues in Mid-August. I promised them to Shosh at Hannah Grey for her vendor booth at Art Unraveled first and then I will be posting them on Portals-Zine.com for everyone to purchase upon her return around the 16th. I will post here the day before they go up for sale. Some issues are extremely limited so please check in early for best selection.
Finally, I am mapping out issue #6, the HOME issue and as always in need of artwork and articles so please send them in!! Submission guidelines may be found here.
First of all, as of today I am completely caught up on orders. There are no orders in my box AT ALL so woot woot for me! If you are waiting for issues 4 or 5, please begin stalking your mail man and don't email me for at least a week :). The feedback on issue #5 has been great. Thanks for those of you who have taken the time to write and let me know how much you like it. It really means a lot to me.
The other piece of news is also very exciting but to a smaller number of you. I have finally received the missing Portals fatbook pages from Joleen so that project is back on track. Unfortunately, I only have 8 sets of pages out of 30 so I am looking for fill ins. If anyone is interested in doing some pages I would love to have you. The pages I have are really great and it should be a wonderful book.
Although I JUST finished #5 I am thinking about #6- the HOME issue. Please consider sending in artwork and article ideas so it is as great as the current issue.
Yeah, they haven't even hit the mailbox and my hubster noticed a boo boo. Shoot... Anyway, page 14, the first page of the Museé, SHOULD have credits for the work shown as follows: Danielle Muller, Marilyn Healey and Gail Cowan. I'm so sorry gals!
Production continues on Portals v 5. I am so glad I decided to go the stapler route!!! It has really sped up the process for this one woman show. I can actually even sort of feel my right arm!! Hannah helped stuff envelopes for all of about 5 minutes. (you can see the little pile in the green box) Our director of production is a hard task master.. she gave me the glare eye when I paused to take a picture to prove to you all that I AM WORKING ON THEM!! I am off to make address labels.. watch your mailboxes!!!!
Just a note to say my shipping has been help up by a mis-print on one page. Its involves advertisers so I HAVE to fix it. It will be re-printed tonight. Due to the hold up and uber fat size of this issue I am seriously considering stapling them. Would everyone totally hate that???
