After an inexcusably long hiatus, Elbow Pads Magazine and back and ready to release our long awaited November 2012 issue. Of course, it would now have to be consider the July 2013 issue but nonetheless, it cannot wait for you all to get its hand on it.

Before we jump head first, however, we have discussed the most rational route to see to it that your work gets the attention it deserves. Long story short, we need advertising. New York City isn’t the most listening place in the world what with all the starving artists and cynical narcissists (however much we love the Big Apple). We started a project on Kickstarter with a goal to advertise through various channels.

Please help us reach this small fund so that Elbow Pads can nourish and, in turn, pay you all back for your wonderful support.
