Plastikcomb Magazine 2.0
“Digital is Dead,” says Dusty, the magazine’s mascot.
Plastikcomb Magazine (PCM) is a biannual alternative art magazine, that explores experimental editorial design based on featured artist’s work.
The founder, a self-taught artist/graphic designer Aaron Beebe, created his own magazine after being constantly rejected by publications and galleries. He was heavily influenced by RayGun and knew that the magazine’s editorial content would be framed in a chaotic, abstract style. Its main focus is featuring artists’ work, short stories, and thoughtful interviews.
PCM 1.0 was released in November 2020 and was designed by Beebe, along with Thomas Schostok, who lives 3,292 miles away in Essen, Germany. They produced the magazine solely through texts and emails. Their first issue was voted one of the top 10 self-published magazines in 2021 by Adobe and PAGE Magazine (Germany).
PCM 2 is perfect for all art and design communities, who crave certain aesthetically pleasing publications from the past!
