Good to Know #2 Launch!

Good to Know #2

I’m thrilled to launch the second issue of the Good to Know project with not just one, but three zine giveaways!

If you haven’t heard, the Good to Know project is full of advice + inspiration from artists/illustrators/designers on creativity, business and life. For the second issue, we asked this question:

When does one know that a personal style has developed? Is it important to know what exactly that style is?

Twenty-eight answers were gathered, and along with that, many submitted their work alongside their thoughts! I’d like to thank the following participants for coming along:

  1. Xin of Doinky Doodles
  2. Belinda Kemp of Gretchenmist
  3. Brian Patenaude
  4. Emma Kidd of Benconservato
  5. Cathie Urushibata
  6. Claudia Pearson
  7. D.U.R.A aka i.itch.illustrations
  8. Dolores Wally
  9. Elizabeth Graeber

You can read their opinions here, where you can purchase and also download the PDF directly on the site (we still have our Etsy site if you prefer that option!) To see a preview of the zine, see our Issuu page.

To be one of the three random winners who will be sent a copy of the zine, just let me know in the comments section who is your favourite artist in the whole wide world, or what kind of style you are drawn to. Don’t have a favourite? Just comment away anyway and you’ll be in the running. :)

The lucky winners will be picked on Friday, 5th June 2009!

Have a great weekend everyone!


*The comments are now closed, and winners will be announced on Monday — thanks for coming along! If you’d like to receive future notifications of giveaways + more on Pikaland, subscribe to our mailing list!*

The Good to Know posse page! (issue #2)

Thank you so much for coming along for the Good to Know project!

As a token of appreciation, you can download the PDF copy of the zine above for free, and if you’d like to have a copy to keep, we’ll send it to you for just USD4.00 (I’ve tried to see if I could afford to send it to everyone for free, but I don’t think that’s possible — so this price will cover the minimum shipping + misc fees!)

Big hugs,

Thank you!

Thank you so much for supporting the Good to Know project, and we hope you’ll enjoy the read.

If you have purchased the downloadable PDF, you should receive a link to download the document shortly. If you have purchased the physical zine, it should arrive on your doorstep within 14 working days (most probably it’s sooner!)

Should you have any questions, please feel free to email us at amy[AT]
