The wait is over… a new issue of OFF LIFE is out now in print and digital!
Man, are we late with this issue. Like, months and months and months late. We could carp on about how busy we’ve been, about other projects and the realities of publishing independently. Truth is, after putting out Yellow last December – our book of one illustrated year – we were physically knackered and creatively barren.
Sure, we could have half-arsed an issue in February. It would have been dripping with indifference, but we could have done it. Thing is, as we’ve said in the past, we feel a huge weight of responsibility to the artists who trust OFF LIFE with their work. Putting out a half-arsed issue would be a betrayal of both those artists and the reason we started this rag in the first place.
But none of that really matters now, as OFF LIFE 13 is now here and ready to be read! The issue features comics from some of the most exciting artists working in four colour – including Till Lukat, Aleesha Nandhra and Molly Bounds – plus an interview with the one and only Chester Brown and columns from Nobrow’s Sam Arthur and Make It Tell Everybody host Dan Berry.
It’s also out first ever wrap cover, with artwork from the awesome Melbourne-based artist Ellen Porteus. Anyway, enough reading this… go get your eyes on the issue!
