Editors note:

Yep, there are two issues number ten. Why? Because it is much more easier to compile two issues at once - one with all-new contributors and one with tried and tested fellas. And since both are spawns of one editorial cycle - i see no reason to artificially split them.

So here is Issue Ten Part Two. Overall, this is much more visual issue. There are many great asemic pieces and there are a lot of boundary stretching things here and there. I like the way it flows - it is very abstract impressionist.

Without further ado - enjoy!
