Now that issue 15 is starting to arrive in mailboxes, it is fun to see your reactions. (If you haven't received your copy yet, keep in mind that the world is a big, big place and the mail is often a test of patience! Canadians seem to be receiving theirs now, Americans to follow. For Europe and Australia, please know that it will likely take a few weeks.)

"I think @uppercasemag and my painting like each other."
I quite agree! On a grey, snowy day it is nice to see some more pops of exuberant colour. Belinda is a Calgary-based artist with a surprising Etsy shop. She poses with her art! I thought this was an unusual and charming way to showcase her work—her personality definitely shines through. I spend quite a bit of time on Etsy and though you often see people who make clothes and accessories posing with their work, I don't think I've ever seen someone presenting their paintings and drawings in this way!
