Thank you to all our new supporters coming in 🌈✨ it means a lot and it spurs me on not to give up on the dream 💖 I know a lot of people are looking for black owned/ran zines & independents to follow at the moment so here’s just a few of our faves: @galdemzine @brickthemag @plantainpapers @yellowzine @ashamedmagazine @sakinamagazine @rootedzine @black.hair.stories @thiiirdmagazine Head over to @beyondthecommons for a list of more zines you need to follow! Thank you to everyone who’s been reposting and sharing it - let’s keep the momentum going 🙏🏽‼️🌎☄️🌸✨✨For everyone who’s new here: Aether has been running for the last 5 and a half years, and is independently funded and published. It was created to give young creatives and emerging talent the chance to be in print - something which back then, I noticed, was often only given to a lucky few. I’ve never had any investment, sponsorships or ads in the magazine - nor do I come from wealth. Everything I have built and created so far has been solely funded through working all sorts odd jobs. When putting the magazine together, I have no team- just me. It has been incredibly lonely at times, so to see Aether suddenly grow so immensely over the last week means a lot to me because I give it everything I have. Thank you ✨- @miasakai95 💋 link in bio for resources 🦋#aetherzine #aethermagazine

Flash Art Covers: Philip Guston, Tomb, 1978 for Flash Art no. 105 December 1981 – January 1982 told by Giancarlo Politi (@politi.giancarlo). Link in bio.⁠⠀⁠⠀ "Philip, despite being considered an abstract expressionist, maybe because of his and Pollock’s friendship, never lost his interest in comics. This influence is evident in his more recent works and often made him more original than some of the other more famous yet repetitive expressionists."⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #PhilipGuston⁠⠀⁠⠀ #GiancarloPoliti⠀⁠⠀⁠⠀ #FlashArtInternational⁠⠀⁠⠀⁠⠀⠀⁠⠀⁠⠀ #FlashArtMagazine⁠⠀⁠⠀⁠⠀⁠⠀ ⁠⠀⁠⠀⁠⠀⁠⠀ #art #contemporaryart #artmagazine #magazinecover #cover #archive⠀
