I’m going to be as brief as possible because I don’t want to waste your time. Basically, we need your help, so we can launch a new issue of irevuo magazine in February. In order to obtain the much needed funds, we set up a new Indiegogo campaign here.
Why do we need money? Continue reading
Here’s my philosophical Christmas thingy:
We want what we want, and we do everything we can to obtain it. There’s no way to go around this. And even though we undoubtedly will cross paths with others, we often mistake their motives and try to make them do things our way. At times, we might even believe we’re alone. Bitterly alone in a world that’s trying its best to keep us as from achieving our destiny.
Sometimes we feel this life resembles a war. Every day is a battle, every day we have to wake up and choose to fight or not. We choose whether our own dreams and ideals are worthy of the tremendous energy we’re wasting just too keep them alive. Continue reading
<- This is the badge Adrian designed.
Anyway, on a more serious note. The website is fully functional. And, quite frankly, I’m starting to get the hang of it. Especially with that whole Midnight Muse thing. But I’m also searching for great artists, some of which I already contacted. I know Adrian is working on a little surprise for you, something like a Christmas present to all those that helped and supported irevuo all these weeks. Continue reading
So I decided to do a sort of daily thing on irevuo, called The Midnight Muse. Basically, every midnight I write a post about inspiration and art, or just post a picture, a video, a song, something that’s supposed to kickstart your creativity somehow. You can check out the first post in the series here.
You can also subscribe to receive the posts in your e-mail inbox via our newsletter widget in the sidebar (where you can also subscribe to our daily and weekly newsletters.)
A few sleepless nights and the website is looking better. And it’s got more functions. Or something like that.
So, basically, we’ve got the following things:
- The online magazine part, with art related news, interviews, and so on.
- The community. This part is what I’d like to tell you about. You can register for an account with your e-mail or use one of your social media accounts (including your WordPress.com account) What can you do with an account on irevuo? Well, you can start topics, reply, and stuff like that on our forum. You can add pictures (your work), you can interact with other users, create user groups, and so on. So, it’s kind of like a mini-social network for artists.
But wait, there’s more. More updates, that is. Continue reading
On a completely unrelated subject. I think I figured out what the funny noises my computer is making mean: something’s wrong with the hard drive. Or at least, that’s my theory.
What’s that got to do with anything? Beats me.
On more important topics. A couple of days ago I managed to irrevocably fuck irevuo’s theme (and most of the installed plugins.) Oh, sorry for saying fuck. Anyway, I bought a new theme, new plugins, changed a lot of stuff around, didn’t sleep. Continue reading
Yeah, it’s me in the photo. And I’m wearing an irevuo t-shirt.
So, basically I’m working like crazy on the site, trying to get it all ready before Saturday night. And I’ve still to send out e-mails to people, and last night I almost got some proper sleep. Oh, and this computer’s making funny noises… and I just changed practically everything in it a few months ago. How much I love technology, especially when it sounds like a desperate cricket. Or something. Continue reading
Here in Romania it’s already the 10th, which means that we’ve got 5 more days until irevuo.com will be up and running. Which also means that I’ll be sending out emails to contributors about the perks that are related to the website: the Donors page, banner ads, etc.
Also, the idea is to have a few artists to feature in the following days. So you can recommend an artist (but not yourself) – any kind of artist – by emailing us at contact at irevuo dot com. Pretty simple, huh? You need to include a link to a website/blog where we can see some works of art. Continue reading
Hi everyone. Today you get to meet another member of irevuo‘s crew. His name is Adrian Gabor, and he’s the guy who designed our logo. Also, I’ve worked with him on a number of projects along the years, including a gaming magazine, a movie review website, and some other stuff.
He’s also a great photographer. You can check out his stuff here. Continue reading
