RVA NO.2 is turning zombies into people.

by | Sep 1, 2010 | POLITICS

Just realized we hadn’t put out an official post for the new issue. We are feeling good about this one. Check the press release and spread this thing around.

We are enjoying the last days of summer here at the office and sniffing the pages of the newest episode of RVA. Ahhhh, smells sweet as this is our best issue yet, hands down. No joke. Completely blows all others away. It is packed to the rim with relevant information on our city and we are pretty stoked to see it in your hands and preying in your minds.

In this issue of RVA, we have an exclusive interview with none other than the iconic Pharrell Williams of N*E*R*D and the Neptunes. He talks about the upcoming album and the love he has for the ol’ Cap City. We follow that up with words with metal/punk illustrator Will Towles, former Commonwealth and current Dominion designer Bryan Woodland, share secrets with pinup artist Erik Jones, stir up controversy with PUNCHLINE creator Pete Humes, weave a tale on the East End Fellowship in Church Hill, profile the enigmatic Diamond Black Hearted Boy, touch weirdness with Kemper, and understand the origins of The Gods Of The Bobbleheads. After that run on sentence, you have the latest and greatest incarnation of RVA to reach the masses ever!

So take a minute, flip through our pages, sip on your moonshine and find out what Richmond, VA is really about.

I created Richmond, Virginia’s culture publication RVA Magazine and brought the first Richmond Mural Project to town. Designed the first brand for the Richmond’s First Fridays Artwalk and promoted the citywide “RVA” brand before the city adopted it as the official moniker. I threw a bunch of parties. Printed a lot of magazines. Met so many fantastic people in the process. Professional work: www.majormajor.me
