My Blog In The Art Magazine.

Hi there,

Yes The Rambling Expat as been cited in an art magazine.
And not any art magazine, but the very good Art Monthly Australia, which as its name's point out, is an Australian magazine.
Could we deduce from this, that fishing is starting to be recognised as an integral part of the Australian culture?

Now why did they feel the need to write about the blog in the magazine?
Was it for my writing talent?
Was it for my photographic talent?
I think that it was because of a post I did last month about a fishing exhibition being prepared by the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, often referred to as MAGNT.

So do you want a proof?
Here is a little photograph of the short piece in which the blog was cited:

Cool, no?

This was a simple, funny and very kind way for the editor to announce the upcoming exhibition. 
This is published in the "Sultry Summer Issue", for December 2011 to February 2012.
Here is a copy of one of the magazine cover for this issue:

One of two...

Yes I did write one of the magazine cover for this issue, and then captioned the image with "One of two"... Why? Simply because for this very issue, the editor choose to have two different cover for the magazine. Depending of your luck you could have this one or the other one when you buy the magazine.
What does the other cover look like?
Just go to the newsagent to find out, or check them out online, they have an electronic version of the magazine available.
And no, I do not get any royalties on the sales or subscriptions to the magazine.
Even if I have to say that yes, this is among the few magazines that I enjoy reading, so this is great.

It is true that after being cited in this magazine, I better have to lift my game in regards to fishing photography. And this worry me a bit, as when I am happily fishing, I do find it hard to focus on the image making thing too... 

But hey, it could be worse.
Have a good day,

It was difficult for me to believe that "fishing in Australia" is only now being considered "culture".

I have considered fishing as part of Australian culture for many, many years.

Some of the best Fishing Television was from your part of the world.

Once again congratulations and keep up the great work.

Happy Fishing. Frank

Hi Frank,

Yes but to go from popular culture to recognised culture is often require an arduous effort.

Thanks for your comment.

Have a good day,

Aren't hand painted lures lovingly crafted art?
