Around our office, the smell of a freshly painted mural is known as the smell of success. You can put it up anywhere, anyhow, anytime and call it art. And within a minute or two this art piece will have rounded the globe through our extensive far reaching community network of integrated media. Permit me to introduce OFFLINE as the arbiter of all things good to come. Off Line will be published quarterly and globally. Our aim will always be to blend high brow expectations with low brow grit and authenticity. Off Line was formed because there is a void in the community that we know we can serve. Are constituents come to us through myspace, twitter, our live events ... Basically we are introducing street artists to people with deep pockets full of money! Or something like that! The pages of Off Line are brimming full with art and news from around the world. No corner of globe is out of reach for us. Our premiere issue will feature muralists from Stockholm and Sao Paulo ... Stencilists from London and Berlin to Tokyo. We have a special correspondent in Paris this week to cover the largest gathering of street artists on the planet. Get the inside hard core lowdown on street art laws all over the world, graffiti in Gaza and Hong Kong, school kids tasered and sentenced to hard labor in diamond mines for graf protests in Johannesburg, and the billboard liberation front dressing up in gorilla suits and charming the cops. We’ve also got the exclusive on the tragic epidemic of the IPOD DEATH SQUADS that have reeked havoc on young people. Okay .. not really but the visual of police tape in profile on the pavement is always hot! Like Whatever! Our Launch Party will start the season. Our invites have been sent out and we are planning a night of live DJs and an open bar sponsored by “insert sponsor here”. Our special feature will be a canvas were we’ve invited our audience and friends and artists to tag ... at the end of the night our canvas will be cut up into a billion pieces and you can take it with you. Yes People. We are giving you a piece of history. Our first commissioned piece will be mounted during the party and you can participate. The Offline Launch Party will be a special feature in a future issue of offline. And lastly ... don’t throw that match book away. The cover contains a special Q-barcode that will take you to our website and into the world of Offline.

From Tokyo to New York, from bathroom scribbles to commissioned public works, Off-Line is an international street art catylist. While other street art media is primarily photo-based, Off-Line literally hits the streets, keeping in touch with the street art community on a global scope through the internet and on the street. We believe, as does our audience, in countering the polished mainstream ideal with our raw, expressive, thought-provoking voice. Even before our official launch this early spring, when it was still too cold to hit the street with our paints and stencils, our parties and our website Offlinemag. com stirred things up on Bboy Social Network, Twitter, Facebook, and Myspace. We heard it all first-hand. “Dear Off-Line, how can I go to one of your parties?” or “Check out this tag” or “Feature my graffiti-inspired shoe line!”Of course, we were ecstatic. This is a project from our hearts and a project we are passionate about. Throughout this process, we have built a devoted, targeted subscriber list and audience.
