I started Royal Flush Magazine as a fun art project for my college friends and I to stay in touch in early 2000. I have created all 6 issues out of my apartment on the Lower East Side of New York City. Now as Royal Flush approaches its tenth year in publication, it's read by more than 50,000 of the most serious fans of music, art, comics and Rock & Roll the world over. We celebrate the best in art, film and rock and roll, but more importantly, we make fun of everything else!

The realities of print publishing in 2010 are rough, no matter how we sugarcoat it. We know Royal Flush is a project that many people enjoy and would like to see keep going. In many ways we're the last bastion of hope for illustration, comics and frankly, a non-mainstream force-fed opinion on the news and the culture around us.

The world needs us, and we need help to keep bringing you the best book/magazine ever!

All funds will go to cover the printing costs. Royal Flush has always had a goal to break even - create art for art's sake, and of course, show everyone else what time it is. With your generous donation, you not only can get some really cool, rare and exclusive Royal Flush products, but, keep over 250 illustrators, writers, designers and photographers working, creating and innovating.

With your support, over the years Royal Flushhas sponsored national tours, all-day festivals, concert events, boat cruises, art exhibits, and student seminars. In 2009 the Royal Flush Festival debuted in NYC. The Royal Flush Festival is a 4-day celebration of art, film and Rock & Roll culture in multiple venues throughout NYC and is run by an all-volunteer staff. We're very fortunate that Royal Flush has garnered rave reviews from The Los Angeles Times, Entertainment Weekly, The New York Post, PerezHilton, AOL, Village Voice, Ain’t It Cool, Publisher’s Weekly and Time Out New York among many others.
