Issue 24 – The Landscape Issue

We have another big issue for you to enjoy {yep all 152 pages of it!} In Issue 24 we are exploring the power of a landscape and how it can be manipulated, changed, re-constructed, shrunk or viewed from a different perspective. Scroll down to see what we have for you in this issue!



Blanket’s Cover Art

We introduce you to our Blanket cover artist for this issue, Jo Cheung, whose ‘landscape’ illustration was influenced by her childhood holidays in Hong Kong.

The issue would not be complete without our Blanket Featured Font! This issue type designer, Darim Kim, brings us her font ‘My Fair Cody‘ which was designed as a tribute to her dog.

I will also be showing you an easy Photoshop Tutorial so you can create the illusion of Tilt-Shift Photography {it will have you turning all your holiday photos into miniature landscapes!}

Artist Interviews

In our feature article we interview five very different artists that have all looked to the landscape for inspiration and are interpreting it in their own unique way.

1. Erin Tyner’s, photographic series Half Awake are carefully staged miniatures that depict 
an unfolding scene of a lone figure in the landscape.

2. New York photographer, Matthew Albanese, can spend months assembling his model landscapes using everyday materials such as faux fur, steel wool, ground parsley, paprika, sugar, and table salt. His photos are so realistic that at first glance many people mistake them for actual landscapes.

3. If you were a garden how tended would you be? It’s the question, Frank Plant, asks his viewer in his seriesHow does your garden grow?

4. The contrast of an urban/rural landscape is a constant theme for photographer, Lindsay Blamey.

5. In her series You Are Here artist, Megan Scheminske, paints canvases using Google map reference images.
• Collage artist, Jesse Draxler, chats to us about his work and collaborating with other artists.

• Blanket writer, Jonathan Hulme, teaches us The Road Rules we should know before we take our next roadtrip.

• Gwendoline Watson embraces her fear and spends a night camping in the wild Welsh landscape in her storyFeel The Fear.
