Dose Magazine is a printed artifact created to showcase young and talented artists, musicians, writers and thinkers.

By creating a cross-disciplinary collaboration using the work of the featured artists Dose Magazine hopes to reflect the changing landscape of our culture. One of the ways it strives to accomplish this is by living outside of the printed form with the accompaniment of concerts, releases parties, and issues on multiple platforms. In addition to working with artists and musicians, Dose also collaborates with businesses for support, web designers for an online existence, graphic designers, and printers.

The Idea

My friend Sean Dwyer and I had came up with an idea to showcase all our talented friends in a printed format. We wanted to revolve each release around a party that presents all the contributors in a live setting. A merging of the arts, music, photography, writing and other sources would come together to hang out for a night as well as live in a printed edition.

The Plan

We worked for about two months getting enough artists and musicians together to come out with enough for our first magazine. By contacting local business partners, we assembled enough funds to self publish 250 copies. Sean Dwyer contacted the bands and dealt with much of the managing, while I designed the magazine and contacted artist.

Execution

We hosted our Release party in Georgetown at Machine House Brewery. They were kind enough to let us display art, play live music, and hang out for an evening. The art also displayed for 2 weeks.

A Word from the Artists

Ian Bremner

Ian Bremner runs Old Rookie, an entertainment website dedicated to shedding light on music. New and classic music with no genre bounds and the continuous search for art with “soul n rock n roll.”

Cassidy Depew

Cassidy is an accomplished visual artist from Seattle, studied at Cornish College of the Arts, and uses many mediums; but her favorite is paint and canvas.

Mac Hubbard

Mac Hubbard is a writer in his Senior year of studying English Literature at the University of Washington. He wants his words to inspire peculiarity and curiosity. He tells stories because they are of use to many people he has met.

Quinton Maldonado

Working digitally, my color fields are constructions of ones and zeros ordered, degraded, and corrupted at random; interpreted by programs to show a visual of something intangible. Disrupting the normal functions of the images on a coding level and allowing the programs to mend them back together exposes an unintentional beauty that is not normally ascribed to unconscious programs. Personality and expressions can be seen in the images, but is ultimately an illusion of programs hiding errors I have created; exposing a purely digital aesthetic devoid of the reference to the physical realm.
Karl Max

Stoned and alone in a Georgetown basement. I get my zen from lines and dots.

Dasha Medvedeva

Dasha likes to draw, eat and sleep. Along with her favorite illustrators she is heavily inspired by comic books and recently old horror films.

Hugh Rountry

The universe is matter and energy, the atomic flow is constant, and there is a give and take in all sense and action. Within these grandiose parameters this camouflage is an indulgence of sight and expression, created with the goal of essentializing tree bark and capturing the flow of matter within and without through gestural mark making.

Christopher Walsh

Originally, I conceived of angle symmetry as a means to map states of consciousness during experimental drawing tests which utilize unicursal line. Since I can encode a continuous sequence of feelings as differentiations of angular direction in the plane, to varying degrees of magnitude. Each drawing becomes a geometric map of the process, in this sense. But here the line between mystical thought, art, and mathematical pattern matching starts to blend.
