So it’s nearly completed. Finally after months and months - my little magazine baby is almost ready to enter the world and leave my academic womb.
I have had the best time producing this magazine. Interviewing talented creatives such as Tinsel Edwards and Isabel Rock was a highlight. I have always admired Tinsel’s work and so to have the opportunity to have a chat with her was really insightful. The honesty of her work provokes a playful attitude which I personally find very charming in the somewhat pretentiousness of the art world.
Second, Isabel Rock. I went to see her show once when I was interning as Art Editor of Amelia’s Magazine. The exhibition stuck with me, and so when I decided that interviews with inspirational artists would be a feature for Treehouse magazine, I got straight in touch with Isabel in hope that she would remember me! She kindly agreed to answer an interview and her personality in the interview reflected her imaginative and obscure fairytale likeness of her works.
I also got to the chance to interview two of the music industries, what I would like to call them, finest wizards. Jesse Quin and Dan Solo of the Superimposers. Jesse Quin, a very talented man with his hand in a lot of musical pies. Jesse told Treehouse magazine of the many ventures of his musical career, how he got to becoming the bassist for popular band Keane, talks of his own band Jesse Quin and the Mets, The Wedding Guests and new supergroup Mt. Desolation.
You can hear the wonderful sounds library, record label home to The Superimposers, by clicking on the link.
Other interesting content featured in the magazine was articles written by two of my lovely contributors Jenna Seal and Harriet Beesley. Jenna, writing about East London based film society Today is Boring and Harriet - a very interesting piece on the history of Quilts and their position in Society today, with regards to the current exhibition on at the V&A.
I’ll be putting the magazine up online after next week which I will post a link to so you can see.
For now I’ll leave you with the front cover, designed by my extremely talented art director Rose Nordin:

“Close your eyes to corral a virtue,
Is this fooling anyone else?
Never worked so long and hard to,
Cement a failure.”
