Creating a Clamor Magazine Digital Archive

12:41 pm in art,community,faesthetic,life,web,zines dustin hostetler

There was a time when Toledo, Ohio (home of Faesthetic) was a hot bed of zine publishing. While now long gone, Clamor magazine was at the forefront of the publishing revolution. Filled with aggressive & forward thinking politics, it defined a generation’s belief system and helped many of us find our political voices. To this day, I credit Clamor with motivating me to publish Faesthetic on a regular basis. Clamor impacted many people’s lives. Hell, they were one of the first magazines to publish my illustrations.

Archives of the entire Clamor library are available for free online here. Now the publishers are back, and looking to make the entire archive more user friendly and searchable, and they need your help. Please consider supporting making Clamor more accessible for the next generation of zine publishers and political extremists. 😉

RIP Justin Van Hoy & The Dutch Press

I am deeply saddened to pass along the news that a dear friend has passed away. Justin Van Hoy was one of the most motivated and focused designers I’ve ever had the privilege of calling my pal.

I met him when I first started publishing Faesthetic and producing my own artwork. We both starting hustling right around the same time and often shared stories and experiences related to the industry. When he relocated to Los Angeles I would pick his brain about all of the amazing people he was meeting.

Early on he worked for and with Shepard Fairey, and through Shep ended up having fantastic artistic relationships with crazy creatives like Mark the Cobra Snake. He also worked very closely with our mutual friend Roger Gastman.

He worked on several of Roger’s books, and through that experience he caught the publishing bug. Only recently did Justin’s brand new book make it to the shelves… Milk & Honey: Contemporary Art in California.

The publishing of this new book wasn’t Justin’s only proof that LA had accepted him as one of their own. His involvement with THIS gallery proved he was completely dedicated to his adopted city.

My heart goes out to his beautiful wife Holly. I am seriously seriously bummed about this loss. His long battle with cancer inspired many of us. He fought to live, and lived life to the fullest. Take a moment to remind yourself how wonderful it is to be alive, and tell all of your friends you love them.

Our friend Zach Gibson said it best… “so many people will be so sad today.”

Believe it or not, Scott Bakal has been working as an artist for almost 20 years. His work feels as fresh and energetic as something made by a twenty-something year old, which is something that all artist want to accomplish. If you haven’t seen Scott’s work before, check it out!
