Varoom Magazine relaunches

varoom

I’m going to get it out of my system straight away… Varoom has moved up a gear, raced ahead and is first on the grid! Right, that’s all my racing cliches sorted! Now to the facts. For those who don’t know, Varoom is a magazine run by the AOI (Association of Illustrators) and focusses squarely on illustration, talking to the artists and showcasing some great stuff. And for issue 10 they’re relaunching with a bright pink cover showing Liberty kissing Justice! They’ve also drafted in the skills of Studio Fernando Gutierrez for the redesign, so go check it out over at the Varoom site.

  • Nice! Been waiting for this. The previous incarnation of Varoom was interesting… but to be honest I wasn’t keen, it was overly ‘cool’ all super-cool text and uber-cool layouts, and very little heart, very little soul, and very little illustration. Not so much focus on truly talented illustrators, just the fly-by-night, fad following cool kids, who’ve not been heard of since. Man, I could rant sometimes, but I won’t. Anymore. Maybe I didn’t look at it or read it enough. I’ll wait to check out the new Varoom and hopefully enjoy it! I like the new title text, good start!

  • Great re-mix. Love the cover. Interesting points Ben, we shall have to wait and see what Varoom has in store for us!
    Des and Abi’s fantastic doodlezine is covered in this issue too!
