New Art Magazine Launches: The Black Harbor

The Black Harbor Is a New Online Art and Design Publication Featuring Illustrators, Designers, Photographers, Filmmakers, Musicians and Dreamers From Around the World

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - February 2, 2010) - Launching today is http://theblackharbor.com/, an online art and design publication featuring illustrators, designers, photographers, filmmakers, musicians and dreamers from around the world.

Started as a side project of the San Francisco-based design firm, I Shot Him, The Black Harbor was the brainchild of Mike Jeter and Carl Bender. "The Black Harbor's main goal is to create a community around the exploration of innovative commercial art. Aside from showing the individual work of our artists, we work to foster a collaborative spirit with the belief that two heads are better than one," says Jeter.

The Black Harbor hosts events, initiates social art projects, celebrates the power of creative thinking, and above all promotes the sharing of ideas. Top features on launch day include a video interview with photographer Justin Fantl, whose ultra clean, ultra designed photographs have been seen in Dwell, Fortune and the NY Times T Magazine. Also featured is an interview with Alex Robins of the band Or, The Whale in the site's Auditory Viewings series.

Initiated as a means of pulling together the many talented people that Jeter and Bender know outside their own firm, The Black Harbor accrued an exclusive group of collaborators that are, according to Bender, "making waves as artists and should definitely be in your sights."
