ROCK, PAPER, SCISSORS IS NEARLY FINISHED - HURRAAH HOOOO!
There are still little fiddly bits like headers, proof-reading, page numbers, and probably lots of other annoying mistakes (kerning has become my biggest enemy) but I am about to bestow upon you a very exciting sneak preview...
I am printing the first batch next week but this will be primarily for my uni project, family, friends & contributors. After this the magazine will be available to everyone and anyone! They will be printed to order so if anyone wants a copy - go on, you know you want it - you may have to wait a few weeks for orders to build up. A proper preview will be up soon and all these details will be cleared up in the next few weeks after the storm! Also, due to the project being entirely funded and created by myself (what a gruelling project! You better appreciate each and every page, stroke it a lot and stick the magazine in a frame afterwards!) this one-of-a-kind publication will not be your bog-standard £3.99 - it will be a LOT more expensive due to a short print run, very nice textured paper and the fact it is being hand-bound, but it's definitely an investment - just thought I'd warn you fellow poor ones first! BUT BUY IT ANYWAY, PLEASEEE! THERE'S A FREE BUTTONS POSTER!! Anyway, keep your eye on the blog should you desire the first ever copy of ROCK PAPER SCISSORS.
Can I hear a drum roll.....????!!!
p.s. the images are all low-res screenshots for a reason - BUY IT TO SEE IT BETTER ;)

As I have been writing and layout-ing (?!) like a mad woman, I haven't really done too much to post images about. However, when I went to meet Juliana again on Wednesday regarding her new knitwear book (DEFINITELY GOT SOME PHOTOGRAPHY IN THERE - SCORE!) I got to relax just a little whilst waiting for her in the V & A. The sun was shining, the John Madejski gardens were calling, and I sat in peace for a little while with my feet in the pool.
Ahhh - isn't this nice, though slightly wonky - great photographer Jo!
THEN as I closed my eyes and tried to catch some shut eye, some 'cute little kid' only blimmin' steps on top of the openings of that dribbly fountain thing, promptly aiming it (though unintentionally I'd like to think) at me, my spread out phone, camera and prototype magazine. I actually thought the heavens had open and grabbed all my stuff, dropped my phone (as if it wasn't broken enough) and ran to safety with three very smug looking Korean girls laughing at me. Turns out, a girl can't catch a break - FACT. I then had to meet Juliana in all my soaked glory and looking pretty sheepish.
Moral of the story - don't trust kids in water. x
Wet hair is not a good look - at least the lippie stayed on.
Please excuse tired miserable looking face.

Sorry it's taken so long for these to appear AND I don't even know if these are the final edit - I sorta just bunged together my favourite ones for now but they might be different shots in the final mag! I haven't even thought up a name yet. ARGH. Anyway, hope you enjoy the lovely pick-your-own frutiness of it all and a MASSIVE thanks to my peeps who were helping with the shoot as the weather/organisation was a bloody nightmare - oops. You'd think I was getting better at this...
