The Tilburg posse sent in these scans from a free Dutch magazine called Glamsterdam:
Pim Hendriksen was one of the winners of a photoshoot to show a different look at how to see Amsterdam. The theme was Small Things.
The shoot shows Jon’s Gardunny from the Ye Olde English Dunny series at various locations in Amsterdam.
Actually, unlike Plan 9 from Outer Space, Plan B magazine is from Croatia. It might as well be from outer space though. Very cool to see interest in Jon’s work (and a shout-out to Doodlesplatter) from different parts of the world. Also: you are really famous when people add extra vowels to your name. I’m talking to you, Jona Burgermana.
Jon did a great glossy cover (which can be easily turned into a landscape-oriented poster) for Freeq Magazine. There’s also a 2-page interview you should check out. I didn’t scan it because it’s an inexpensive little zine, and they put it all online too, so the least you could do is click over their way and maybe they get a nickel’s worth of ad revenue, right? Check out the interview with Jon here and the whole issue here.
In August of 2009, I interviewed Jon for Heeb Magazine, and he mentioned how he was anxious about writing a guest piece for a UK publication called The Anxious Times. Well, the magazine came out, and boy is it glorious. I had no idea magazines like this existed. Sporting a celebrity cover, it includes stories with tantalizing titles like “COMPULSIVE HOARDING PODCAST” and “Anxiety UK Joins the British Toilet Association (BTA) Campaign for Better Public Toilets.” The fact that you folks across the pond have both this magazine AND a BTA just makes me want to sanitize my hands, walk in and out the door 3 times and board a plane ASAP.
Anyhow, enough about me. Jon got a two-page spread I’ve taken the liberty of scanning below. He talks about the role of anxiety in his art shows like Because I Can’t Sit Still and Anxiety Room. He lists 21 Anxieties, including #7: “My favourite pens being discontinued.” My favorite bit is this quote, which I, maybe some of you, and most likely Mr. Woody Allen, relate to:
I’ve started trying to harness [anxiety's] debilitating energy into something useful. If it’s going to make me act in a strange way, I might as well use it for the entertainment of others or even myself.

Jon snags another Computer Arts cover with issue 169. The issue features a psychedelic full color cover, an interview, a print and the “essential Jon Burgerman.” On newstands in the UK now. Coming to the US soon. Subscriptions with exciting gifts available here. Thanks to Amir for the hi-res scans. If you can’t find it in your country, and you don’t have a helpful Neon Hive to send you a copy, drop me an email, and I’ll forward you the digital version.
It’s character design time again over at Computer Arts Projects, and issue 126 delivers big time. Thunder Chunky has a nice preview of the magazine, which includes: Peskimo, Mark Verhaagen, Tado, JamFactory, Niark 1, Mijn Schatje, 123 Klan, Triclops studio, Jeremyville, Lunartik, Alexis West, Loworks, Sourbones, Skaffs, Aaron Miller, Eboy, Superdeux, Misu2020, Motomochi, Meomi, 64 Colors, Supakitch and Kozyndan.
Jon, who has graced the cover of C.A.P. before, has a “My Career So Far” spread in which 9 years of doodling are whittled down to a couple pages of chronological highlights. The biggest highlight for me was seeing Doodlesplatter name-checked (pg. 93: 2009 section or click to enlarge image below). Thanks for the shout and the scans, Jon!
Computer Arts Projects 126 (August issue) came out July 16th. U.S. bookstores are still carrying the July issue, but keep an eye on your favorite local news stand or Borders to get a copy in the next few weeks.
Jon’s work has been featured in several issues of Arkitip. Though I can’t place the exact issue in which this doodled envelope was found, it fits perfectly with the magazine’s commitment to site-specific artwork: Arkitip delivers original, site specific artwork in every issue. The assignment for the artists who contribute is to create something original to run in the magazine. Artists have the opportunity to design and layout the art they contribute as well. Making a contribution to Arkitip is like creating your own “installation” that is then distributed around the world. It’s like a traveling exhibition that you can take home.
[UPDATE 1/2/09: Thanks to the comment below from Ian, we think this image appears in Arkitip issue 26 which is long gone, but a few appear to still be available for $100 directly from Arkitip here.]
While the likes of Mickey Mouse and Spider-Man have hogged the character limelight for many decades, a new generation of character designers–weaned on comic books, Star Wars films and Japanese animations – have been busy creating new characters that reflect their own environments and the fast-changing nature of modern design. Computer Arts Projects Issue 82 puts these characters and their designers under the microscope and takes a look at how cutting-edge character design works–from the vinyl toys of James Jarvis to the highly individual world of Jon Burgerman. With tutorials and tips from some of the best in the business and profiles and features on those leading the way, we bring you everything you need to know to get characters into your work.

Jon has done two covers for Computer Arts: issue 127 in 2006 and issue 151 in 2008. Issue 151 was entitled Build a Better Portfolio, and it examines the theme of self-initiated work and how it can boost a creative professional’s portfolio. You may be able to get a back issue here.
