Acclaim Magazine Issue 24: FANTASY

The wait is over. The new issue of Australian creative lifestyle title ACCLAIM magazine is set to hit local shelves the first week of August, 2011.

The theme of issue 24 is FANTASY. Perhaps it was the cabin fever we’ve all been feeling from being stuck inside this Melbourne winter or perhaps we’re just a bunch of trippers at heart, either way we are excited to unleash the fantasy theme onto our readers. We felt it was time to take a step away from the tangible world and take a trip into our subconscious, with our editorial team digging into every mystical nook and magical cranny to create a psychedelic journey with each page.

As always, the issue has two very special covers. The short-run cover features the work of futuristic Swedish artist and illustrator, Kilian Eng. Kilian is featured in the issue also, along with his work which references the future and analogue culture at once. His retro-future girl graces our cover and on a very select number of issues, the cover features glow-in-the-dark ink. These will be available exclusively to Australian Magnation stores and subscribers (Please note this cover version will be out a week later than the standard cover, due to the special printing process). The standard version of Kilian’s cover is available from all of the boutiques within ACCLAIM’s BTQ network.

The general release cover which will hit newsagents across the country, features the polarizing figure that is Bay Area rapper, Lil B. Who better to champion the fantasy issue than the tripped out Based God. The issue features an exclusive interview and photoshoot with Lil B. Love him or hate him, B is prolific and very much an example of the new generation of music artists in today’s economy. An intriguing mix of strategic social-media savvy and his stream of consciousness rhyme-style and quotables, the rapper has the internet world entranced.

Nagi Noda

The late Japanese artist and director Nagi Noda had a uniquely imaginative way of looking at the world, which was evident in her dreamlike videos and artworks. We speak with a number of friends and collaborators of the artist, including Mark Ryden and Kenneth Cappello, on their memories of Nagi.

Mel Ramos

Mel Ramos paints every man’s fantasy: fast food and naked women. Using the mantra of sex sells, Ramos is one of the last original pop-artists, still eagerly at work even in his 70s. We interview the iconic artist of his work, family and painting Pamela Anderson.
