“When Life Gives You Volcanoes, Make a Magazine”


Writer and editor Andrew Losowsky has come up with a pretty neat idea for all “designers, writers, photographers, illustrators, art directors and anyone else who is stranded by the ash cloud, and would like something to do. If there’s one thing my ol’ ma taught me, it’s that when life gives you volcanoes, make magazines. And so we shall.”

That’s right, Losowsky wants to make a magazine “(working titles include Grounded, SkyFail and Someday We’ll Fly Away)” with the help of stranded contributors.
