It is with mixed feelings that we are announcing the end of Fine Line. We absolutely love the magazine and are so proud of what we have accomplished, but it is time for us to say good-bye. We have both been super busy with new projects and are feeling good about the paths we are currently taking. Of course, we want to say a huge thank you to our amazing artists and fans! It was such a pleasure working with all of you and we appreciate all the love and support you gave us!
As a way to go out with a bang (and perfectly timed for the holidays!), we are offering 20% off everything in our Etsy shop. We are quickly selling out of our back issues, so don’t wait! We like to think that Fine Line will be come a super hot collector’s item one day. :) Use the coupon code: FINELINE1

We absolutely love these photographs by Paris-based artists Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre. Rich textures, subtle pops of color and gorgeously soft lighting bring a sense of magic to these forgotten places.
We can’t stop staring at these wonderfully graphic paintings by Portland, Maine-based artist Joe Kievitt. Working on paper with ink and liquid paint, Kievitt isolates areas for treatment, working on a slow and meticulous process, creating these somewhat hypnotic asymmetrical works.
How great are these perceptual studies by Toronto-based artist Isabel M. Martinez. Spending her formative years in Santiago, Chile, Martinez’s work takes apart experience, time, perception and emotion in these simple yet mesmerizing photographs. Each piece is done using analog medium format film, multiple exposures, and in-camera masks to achieve the striped pattern, which at times renders the illusion of a three dimensional collage.
Brooklyn-based fiber artist Emily Barletta has us looking twice at her organically inspired pieces. At first glance we thought they were mere drawings, but each delicate line is actually thread, which makes us love it twice as much. Her careful use of color and composition weave textures that feel natural and inspiring - now if we could only see it in person!
We love these sweet pieces by Singapore-based artist Izziyana Suhaimi. Combining traditional illustration, watercolor and then adding embroidery, Suhaimi creates a subtle narrative between the traditional craftsmanship and contemporary subjects in these beautifully done pieces.
