soUNDscores and more: End of Business 2Posted: July 16, 2011
Very happy to announce the publication of End of Business 2, edited by Ryan Funk.
Issue 2 follows a strong 1st issue that featured work by Kevin Killian, Parker Tilghman, Karen Brennan, and Claire Taylor.
A mash-up of (text) art and corporate design, End of Business gives new life to “borrowed time,” literally. Funk elaborates in his call for submissions:
“EOB is a phrase used in the corporate world to mean end of the business day. i.e. get this report to my desk by EOB! During a slow work day, I make an urgent call for submissions, and by 5:00 pm PST, you have the at-work journal of art and literature delivered to your inbox!”
Today at 11:38am (PST), an undisclosed number of “Artists, Writers, Poets, Designers, Friends” were invited to submit work.
The submission deadline: 3:30 pm.
At 4:50 pm (with “an extra 15 minutes to fight traffic!”), Funk emailed this document (pdf): End of Business 2.
What’s inside is a playful collaging of work by artists from the Bay Area and beyond.
Contributors include (in order of appearance):
Jeff Von Ward
Kudos to Ryan Funk for great design and an exciting second issue.
