Jake & Crash Magazine

I had made some art for Jake and his publication. However, we could not agree on when payment should be made:

nathaniel,

looks good but can I use the original copy instead? I love that raw art. I will pay 2-3 days after I print it. Cool? Thanks!

Sure, you can use the original image. I'd feel more comfortable if payment was sent before it was used though.

If you want, I can give you the original and we can make the exchange in person. Let me know.

Fyi 1296 people read my zine last month over 650 have subscriptions. You obviously don't understand how the art business works bro. Exposure is key plus what kind of artist holds his work up like its merchandise on the shelf?
Just had to enlighten you homeboy.

I think that's really cool that a magazine would try to stay print only in today's digital world. Keeps it more real and "raw" as you had mentioned. I'm glad you're not trying to be a jerk by saying I have little experience and laughing at me. I appreciate that.

Is this your magazine?

Maybe this modern day text lingo is not to be taken literally? That is a fashion magazine

So is it a fashion magazine or is it a punk rock magazine? Those don't seem to mix.

Oh, okay. Dude=modern day text lingo. Dude, it's rad of you to differentiate what you have because I was having difficulty discerning it for myself. I don't think music and fashion are linked in any way either. I mean, it's not like the musicians in one genre dress in a similar style to each other and produce similar music either. Kudos on your observation. I hope there's an article about this in your fashion zine.

Best,
Nathaniel

In all my craigslist responses I've never had such an untalented person have such a cliche vocabulary. Kudos? Your like almost amusing (but not really). Go kick rocks picaso

Your observations are even more keen than I thought! Kudos IS part of a pretty cliche vocabulary. Kudos.

Do you need an editor at your fashion zine? I found a few errors in your last email including but not limited to using "your" instead of "you're" and the lack of capitalization and a missing S in Picasso.

Also, there were some confusing statements where you referred to me as "untalented" and then as Picasso. Are you trying to say Picasso was untalented? Furthermore, in one of your initial emails you referred to my work with "this is really good i would like to print it in the sept issue."

As editor, I can help you keep track of these errors and amend them. Let me know if there is an editor position available.

Best,
Nathaniel



Sadly, this exchange did not lead to an editor position. Still looking though.

  1. people never really have to try to be jerks ... they just are.

    these experiences are hilarious... 2nd issue? he can make statements that seem like his print only mag is of any proven value? hahahaha
