IF WE DON'T MAKE IT, WE DON'T GET TO KEEP ANY OF THE MONEY (If we don't make it to our goal you are not charged!). So if you can stop by our page and simply donate a dollar or send some traffic our way, we can stay on the websites main page/ keep a good momentum. More info here:

CARRIER PIGEON MAGAZINE
Hey everyone, this is one of those side projects I've had the pleasure of being a part of. We've finished the first few issues and now we're preparing to launch.
Now for the hard part. WE NEED TO RAISE MONEY. We've joined Kickstarter to start the fund raising process, but we have a long way to go. THERE ARE SOME AMAZING REWARDS FOR CONTRIBUTIONS TO OUR GOAL.
Check out the site here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/929428847/carrier-pigeon-illustrated-fiction-and-fine-art
SPREAD THE WORD. Ill be ranting about this pretty often. We have an amazing lineup of creatives and we genuinely believe in this. We're fighting to make this happen. We have until August 6th to raise the funds.

Statement of Intent:
Carrier Pigeon is a magazine of illustrated fiction and fine art. By giving full creative control to the artists, illustrators, designers and writers, this magazine hopes to level the conventional perception of the singularity of each artistic discipline. Carrier Pigeon provides artists with a venue for telling stories in an undisturbed environment by offering the chance to show full bodies of work and unconditional artistic freedom in both direct subject matter and the interpretation of text. This publication will be printed quarterly.
In the last year we've put together three issues in our spare time and will soon start on the fourth. Our main goal is to allow artists complete freedom with their artwork, and to have it commercially distributed so the gallery wall would not have to be the only place left for sincerity in the art world. There are taboos put up between fine art, illustration and design that we would love to destroy with Carrier Pigeon by allowing everyone involved the chance to present a narrative in an undisturbed fashion. We also believe that most people are smart enough to understand art that is not packaged for the lowest common denominator but have nowhere to go for such an outlet in the commercial print world. We hope to be that outlet.
