There are so many things I’d like to rant and rave about that it makes my head want to explode.
The country is completely divided, the Kardashian’s still live, Matt Harvey sucks (he’s finally gone) and
I can’t find beard dye that matches my pasty face. Yeah, there’s a lot to talk about. But I think I’ll use
this space to give some props to the reason this magazine look so awesome.

Mark McNabb our Art Director. Mark is the reason I’m able to publish this magazine while I live
in Ireland for reason’s I’ve already addressed in past issues. I’ve been publishing magazines for 30
years and a year ago was becoming increasingly frustrated by the revolving door of artist who came
and went. Some much faster than others. But in their defense the job is thankless, time consuming
and can age you 10 years per deadline. So I don’t begrudge the fallen who have tried and been defeated
by the demands of designing a magazine from scratch which includes creating professional
looking ads, captivating editorial and dealing with yours truly which has to be a nightmare on to itself.

Mark came to me after I had put an ad on Craigslist and without question his portfolio was indeed
impressive. However, we ended up going with another artist and once again how the mighty feel.
Lucky for me and the magazine Mark answered my call and without missing a beat stepped in and for
the past year has virtually created a monthly masterpiece. How he does it I simply don’t know the
answer. But I’m thankful.

So after one year of busting his creative ass for MN magazine I would like to say thank you Mark.

Now get to work!
