1134 Press Hits a New Milestone

3 Feb

We don’t usually post here in the middle of the week, and I don’t have a new comic for you today. I did want to take a moment, though, to acknowledge the growth of our main platform. It’s not a lot in comparison to other YouTube channels, but 1134 Press has recently passed 500 subscribers. We started the channel some years ago; 2017 if I’m not mistaken. However, we only started posting videos with regularity over the summer of 2020. Since then, we’ve seen fairly steady growth in viewership.

I’m compelled to reflect on the history of 1134, but I’ve written about that previously. I’ve most recently written about our journey here. Instead of rehashing our journey, I want to look forward to the future. With the channel growing, our goals for 1134 Press and 1134 Comix seem that much closer. While we continue to produce more and more videos about bookmaking and journaling, we have so many more ideas in the works.

If all goes to plan, here are just a few of the things we can look forward to:

  • A new book of fiction
  • Premium content for 1134 Press subscribers
  • More videos for the 1134 Comix channel

If you happen to be interested in bookmaking, journaling, paper crafts, or writing in general, become a subscriber to our main channel. It costs you nothing and gets us that much closer to achieving the goals outlined above.

Thanks, and come back soon for a new comic!

Channel Update

18 Nov

Hello everybody,

Well, we moved house (and the studio spaces). Unfortunately, though, putting everything back together has been much more of a process than expected. The bookmaking space is nearly together, but we were unable to execute a new video for YouTube this week. We expect to be back up and running in time to create something for next week.

The drawing studio is also coming together, but it is still a bit of a disaster area. So, no new webcomics this week either. Depending how it goes, there might be something new for 1134 Comix this coming Sunday. Anyone who has followed this page for any amount of time likely expects long lapses in new content. So, has anything really changed here?

In conclusion, we’re working to get our stuff together. We can’t wait to start putting new content up as soon as possible.

Thanks for your patience!

In Her Boudoir: An 1134 Press Journal Collection

15 Oct

 

This collection of handmade journals, Boudoir, was inspired by Victorian grandeur and kitschy eclectic styles. From images of decadent furniture, traditional portraits and jewels, I not only wanted to capture what I saw happening in fashion this fall, but to create journals that inspired me to write.

Of late, I’ve been thinking about the intersection of the act of journaling and the physical journal. Aside from the journal being a place to jot down ideas and observations, and its use a therapeutic tool, there is something about journaling that is sensual. What you doodle, or write in your journal are presumably for the self—like an act of cognitive masturbation. When thinking about my personal journaling in those terms, I wanted to create a journal that created a romantic atmosphere. Thus, in this collection there are rich pinks, deep blues, golds, and floral patterns that adorn the covers. Boudoir is nothing short of feminine. The choice to use images of furniture grounds the journals in a home of magnificence.
