Summary (Main point and key ideas): “Hi-Fructose is a quarterly art magazine, founded by artists, Attaboy and Annie Owens in 2005. Hi-Fructose focuses squarely on the art which transcends genre and trend, assuring readers thorough coverage and content that is relevant, informative and original. Hi-Fructose showcases an amalgamation of new contemporary, emerging as well distinguished artists, with a spotlight on awe inspiring spectacles from round the world all of which help to define the future of art in our culture.” – (about)

Usefulness: Being a contemporary art magazine, HF features interviews with current illustrators that could be helpful. A different issue (of HF or another contemporary art magazine) may be more relevant though, in regards to portfolio building and contacting art directors.

Source Location: Hard copy

Credibility: Hi Fructose was created by artists for artists. It is in many large bookstores and is distributed worldwide.

Response:  HF is current and engaging, and features artists that are high up in the art world.

Validity:  This resource is consistent and useful. It is similar to some of the other resources that I have posted.
