BIG Kids Magazine...

It arrived! Ebi-kun scuttled off with it before I had chance to look at it properly...


BIG which stands for Bravery Imagination Generosity, is a pretty unique type of magazine, it consists of work which pairs and adult artist of some kind with a child artist. For example, this issue there is a 'person tree' drawn by a child and a poem written by an adult that goes with the drawing. There is a lot of contributions from artists of all sizes from all over the world and collaborations such as the treasure boats. Ebi-kun's treasure boat was included in the poster that Lilla A put together, can you spot it?


Ebi-kun was very excited to find his ship in the magazine, he says that he feels happy and like he is famous! The magazine makes good reading and it laid out in an artistic fashion plus the paper quality is lovely too. They encourage you to write in the magazine, complete drawings and your own projects, this is the only problem I have with it, and just because I can't bring myself to write in books, it just feels wrong!
To get your hands on the latest edition of BIG kids magazine, you can purchase it here

The cover is by artist Jacqui Stockdale and Makaela aged 8

  1. Ahhhh, now I can't wait for mine to get here! I can't get myself to write in books either. I'll just copy those pages and write on the copy instead.
