Long Island has more than its share of publications -- too many in fact (and this coming from a guy who writes or has written for several of them). So many of them are the same -- too many advertisements and too few interesting stories.
Long Island's newest magazine, canvas, is a little different. For one, the production value is through the roof compared to so many of the ad-supported papers in these parts.
Two, the editor isn't some just-out-of-college rookie or crazy person without any real talent. canvas' editor, Ramin Ganeshram is an experienced journalist, editor and cookbook author with strong ideals and integrity.
Of course, I may be a little biased. A good friend of mine is the associate publisher and I'm working on the project as well. But, bias or no, I'd never laud -- or participate -- in a project I didn't believe in.
Check out their preview issue. And keep an eye out for their official launch in December.
