About Almost Real Things

Celebrate creative exploration.

It all started with an idea for a highly sophisticated conceptual zine titled Boobs of The Louvre. And now, four years later we find ourselves 18 issues deep into ART delirium with many more on the horizon.

Almost Real Things has grown from a pocket sized magazine filled with our most sacred weirdness to a pocket sized magazine filled with ideas, insight and projects from all creators. We have come together in a unified pursuit of simply making to make, and sharing it to inspire others to do the same.

Since 2016 we have:
  • featured 800+ artists in print, online and at our events
  • paid artists nearly $20,000
  • hosted 40 community events
  • ordered 1,716 mini inflatable flamingos
  • argued for a total of 26,820 minutes
  • written / edited / designed 1,080 pages

We love to publish work from artists who are sharing for the first time. Giving others the same opportunities we yearned for as emerging artists is the ultimate accomplishment for us. It’s the very reason we started the magazine.

Here’s the dilemma: we're two stubborn people who have poured our soul into creating this platform, opting for Craigslist gigs rather than full time jobs. We've dabbled in all sorts of money-making ideas to fund the print issues but it's hard to balance creative integrity with cash money. We do not want to stop but, equally, we do not want to die. And Betch Tease or Animal Puns can only rake in so much.

So, to prevent Almost Real Things from becoming a book of ads for Gucci and real estate, we're switching it up to get you more involved in our content, promotion and passion.

We're here to make it super easy to communicate directly with you and achieve our creative goals together. We're going to have fun on this page—we hope you'll come along as a patron.

Love,
Natalie Earhart and Zachary Zulch
