A Swedish surrealist artist with a psychadelic mindset and vision of what an interesting escapistic cultural magazine would be all about. Net-portal of USHiRimagazine is created in cooperation with co-editor Anna Karlsson and together they are the ULTRA-CARROTS!
Vision of the magazine
The idea is built upon that writers choose an artwork drawn by Ushiri and write fiction/poems/stories based on that. Instead of the classic magazines where the illustrator comes second. Interviews & reviews & carrot based text/art is usually not based on Ushiri art.
We want to spread new fresh perspectives in a deranged world with: Smart laughing, outside of the box thinking and also to open up creativity and networking for the people participating in the magazine so we can grow like giant carrots together in our creating. As for now lots of CARROTTRiBE members over the world has been published here and you are welcome to write us aswell 🙂
