T.O.F.U. #11 | Meet the Vegan Illustrators

Cover for Issue 11 Meet the Illustrators

Now that I’ve shown you who the writers are for the next issue, and even posted the first article, I think it’s time for me to introduce you to the illustrators who helped to make this upcoming release look great!

For a number of years, I worked closely with my good friend, Amanda Rogers, who was always kind enough to help me out with design work, despite having a full-time job doing similar things at Subcat Studios in Syracuse, New York, USA. Of course, for those of you who have been following along with T.O.F.U.’s history, you probably recognize Amanda’s name from more than just the Creative Director credit in issues 7-9. During both The Wild T.O.F.U. Tour and the first T.O.F.U. tour in 2009, Amanda also shared her music to help promote the magazine. In fact, for issue eight, we even offered the first digital bundle for T.O.F.U. and an artist when she added her double-album, Wild, to the mix.

Needless to say, Amanda is a rather creative individual with her fingers in many pots (and a green thumb or two in the garden!), so when it came time to work on illustrations for issue eleven, I offered to give her a break so she could focus on things like her upcoming album, Heavy Blue. Of course, she didn’t quite take said break, and ended up involved with doing the artwork for one piece, but I’m glad she did and I look forward to all of our future collaborations.

So, with the stage set for new faces, who ended up offering their skills to pair the articles with some great artwork? I’m happy to say that the cast is as follows:
