    We've got around 80% done, but we would need some more minor things to be done. If you wanna help us Mike, you're welcome.

    oh ok, that's good!

    ok, well I'm gonna do a whole series on the basics of Gimp such as the tools, filters, etc: (kind of like a book, I was working on it before, but I lossed all the images, and sh*t, and forgot to back it up.)

    Cover is done Arzo - going with the tat cover
    we don't need the interview imo (maybe next issue)
    O is finished
    that leaves

    Font section - Arzo it's your font sooooo -- lol
    Submitted Artwork to fill 2 or 3 pages.

    Griatch does some nice stuff, wonder if he would mind letting us use it if we guarantee security?
    I thought Greg was going to get us the art fill but i guess he is pretty busy lately.

    The rest is done and ready for final edit.
    Where ever our senior editor went i have no idea. :p

    O is finished - check. I thought she might wanna do a bit of a final touch-up.

    We don't need an interview - check. Even though I think it might come cool if we'd ask some real pro about his/her attitude towards art, skill, practice and so on.

    Font section: mine? - NO check :D I'm doing the tutorials, that should be it. Somebody just present his top 10 fonts and talk about them a bit (where to use, where to download, copyright things and so on)

    Artwork section .. well, if everyone recommends 1 artwork done with Gimp (dA is a great place), then we already have 4/5 more pages filled. That shouldn't be as hard.

    Anyway, we can discuss stuff like this in the Magazine forum, so I'll leave this topic with a big shout out to anyone who wants to do an interview/font section + design his page like he wants. Anyone up for it?

    That's the only thing , we need to get permission to use the art.
    So go ahead and talk to some Gimp users over there Maffe if you want.

    NOTE: Be sure it is only Gimp related work.There is a lot of Photo Shop material over there also, and i wouldn't want to throw a piece in the Gimp mag created in PS, or some other image editor!

    Thanks Maffe

    In the hidden section of this forum that only people from the magazine-staff can see ;) The first issue is still hanging, mostly because we can't get everything together, but with some luck you'll see it soon.
