Sybil’s Garage No. 3 Update

Baby CarriageI received the edits from Jim Hans on his interview and the illustration from Kris Dikeman, so now it’s entirely up to me to finish the magazine. I can no longer point my finger at others. I had used images from Comstock.com when I realized that even though there was no watermark, they were most likely copyrighted. A quick search to their terms of use confirmed this. My friend and fellow writer, Fred Cataldo, works for them and he managed to get me a trial image (worth $90, thanks Fred!). But he and others pointed me in the direction of iStockPhoto.com which has lots of images for $1 each. Though their quality is not as good, you can’t beat their price. So anyway I set out to replace all the copyrighted images with ones I had purchased.

Long story short, we are in the home stretch. When we opened the submission process in September, I never thought I’d still be working on it in March, but that’s what happens when you’re a perfectionist.

I am not bragging when I say this is the best issue yet. The table of contents is rock solid, and the artwork (not including the downloaded photos) is just amazing. This issue will propel Sybil’s Garage from more than just a magazine to a work of art.

    I was looking for art of baby carriage and saw the one on your site. which led me to your magazine. I think it is great. I want to look more thouraly into it. I am a graphic designer and photographer and my husband is an artist.
    maybe we’ll get something in your magazine sometime.
    I am really excited to see your idea come through! the Design is too cool.
    Sincerly,
