The artwork used for the Insects & Angels website is created by and copyright to Bethalynne Bajema. The decorative insects used for the blog’s design and the woman in the background (Quill) are from Bethalynne’s book Sepia.
*The blog portion of this site features the artwork of a variety of different people. Each piece of artwork or photography comes with a source link or/and name credit. Having had work of ours lifted and used without proper permission over the years we want to be very sensitive to other artist’s rights and work. When we feature someone’s work our desire is to promote them and the incredible work they do. However, we understand not everyone is going to like the site or having their work featured here even as a review. If there is an item of yours you find here and want removed please just contact us at the address above and we will remove it.
When it comes to public domain or vintage photographs, I try and link to sites related to them that offer more information about whatever that old photograph might be featuring. When it comes to old photographs I keep trying to find where they originate from or where to find a way to collect them (be it books, old photo sales, etc) –so if you happen to know something about an old photo that pops up here that might not be available in the links provided with that item, please email me! I would appreciate it greatly.
Frequently Asked Questions
Our collective of squirrel ninjas have calculated the questions most asked:
01: How many squirrel ninjas do you actually have working on this thing and do you need more? Oh I can always use more squirrel ninja minions! But right now all my minions are off being not-minions. The layout and design of the magazine and website are my creation and I do them myself. I’ve been a graphic designer offline and online since the early 90s so I’m pretty good with that sort of thing. I’m always looking for contributors though -this would be people willing to help me track down content (artists, photographers, interesting this and that) for the issues and blog, as well as helping me contact those people. I do I&A in my spare time and sometimes it has to be put on the back-burner while I tend to my every day life & career concerns. This is why deadlines and publishing dates can be shifty. If you’d like to help me out with contributions just email me. I will proudly give you squirrel ninja status in the I&A pantheon.
02: Do you do wholesale orders of I&A? Yes. I offer wholesale orders of each issue. Wholesale orders get set up directly through my printer so that magazines are delivered directly from them to you. I’m always looking for stores or convention individuals who’d like to carry Insects & Angels. Contact me at the above email.
03: How do I model for I&A’s original issue artwork? I’m always looking for models. There are events/conventions that I travel to as often as I can. I’m always looking for people that I can photograph for my own work when I travel, or people local to Michigan. This includes the original artwork created for the magazine and site. If I can’t photograph you personally, I’m also happy to work with other photographers –either to have them photograph the models as I need them or work together on a joint project. This is a calendar of events were we will be vending or at. If the mate and I are traveling to events I’m not actually showing at or vending, I try and note it here as well.
My stipulations for modeling are simple: I work in trade. I offer my models prints of any of the work they’re featured in and the use of the finished artwork in their profiles or on their websites. Photographers whose work I use (when the photos are done specifically for a joint project or directly for me for the magazine) get shared credit for the pieces created. Bethany is able to help me with costuming and hair for some shoots when she’s available. When she’s not available I need models to be able to provide their own hair and wardrobe, unless I have specific costumes for them to work with.
