Happy 2008 from us here at Hi-Fructose

Ert O'Hara
Managing Associate Editor

Former website editor, writer, and photographer for Fecal Face Dot Com
and Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine, Ert has been blogging since 1997,
all the while showcasing work from emerging and underground artists.

Ert will also work closely with us in the growth and shaping of the magazine.
We look forward to her thought-provoking writing and harvesting fresh content.

Kirsten Anderson
Editor at Large

Kirsten has been the founder and owner of Roq la Rue Gallery since 1998.
The gallery has hosted exhibitions by almost every underground art heavyweight
as well as helping launch the careers of a new wave of emerging artists.
In addition, she compiled and edited the seminal survey of Lowbrow/Pop Surrealism

We look forward to more of Kirsten's writing and her eye for finding talented artists.
