Joni Mitchell Paints Cameron Crowe, Orlando Bloom & Kirsten Dunst For Paste Magazine's Oct/Nov Issue

NEW YORK (By Tiffany Shipp/ Ken Sunshine Consultants) - Iconic singer/songwriter Joni Mitchell is the artist behind Paste Magazine's Oct/Nov cover. The watercolor rendering of Cameron Crowe, Orlando Bloom, and Kirsten Dunst, marks Mitchell's first use of watercolor in 30 years. Her last use of the medium was in 1974 for Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young's "So Far" album. She even used the exact same painting kit she had used 30 years ago.

Mitchell said: "I haven't painted [like that] in years. I opened up the caps with trepidations. I thought they'd all be dried up. Some colors had, but many hadn't. I had a limited palette! But I think all the elements are there - the black fences, the green grass of Kentucky, and an indication of those flowering fruit trees. It's pretty abstract."

Also in the Oct/Nov issue:
- A Paul McCartney Q&A on his collaboration with Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich and the album that resulted - CHAOS AND CREATION IN THE BACKYARD, which Paste hails as one of Sir McCartney's best in years.
- Features on Iceland's Sigur Rós, Big Star's first album in 30 years, and on-the-road with the Kentucky-fried boys of My Morning Jacket.
- A behind-the-scenes look at the technology and special effects of Tim Burton's Corpse Bride, Joss Whedon's Serenity, and the Harry Potter series.
- And Paste's take on the latest from Kanye West, Franz Ferdinand, Bjork, Ryan Adams, & Herbie Hancock.

This issue's PASTE MAGAZINE CD SAMPLER contains: My Morning Jacket, Death Cab for Cutie, David Gray, Cary Brothers, Ozomatli, the incomparable Shel Silverstein & more.
This issue's PASTE DVD SAMPLER includes videos from The Flaming Lips, Pixies, Josh Rouse, OK Go, Kathleen Edwards, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Jamiroquai and more, along with short films, Elizabethtown and Serenity trailers, and video game previews.

Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Paste Magazine covers music, film, and culture for discerning tastemakers interested in new music and media. With the tagline "Signs of Life in Music, Film & Culture," Paste has enjoyed the same grass-roots success of many of the artists they cover. Music bloggers, critics, and fans hail the magazine as a go-to source for info on what's just under the radar.
Featured on The Chicago Tribune's annual list of top magazines, Paste has been called a "must read" for young urban professionals with "indie" tastes by the New York Post, and Jim Farber of the New York Daily News wrote that "Paste resembles the top British music magazines like Q, Uncut and Mojo, publications that leave most American counterparts looking tone deaf."
Paste Magazine also presents a weekly "Paste Picks" segment on CNN Headline News. Each Tuesday, at 1:54pm, Editor Josh Jackson and Publisher Nick Purdy weigh in on the new music and movies that are just under the radar.
Paste Magazine has featured cover subjects such as Death Cab For Cutie, Sarah McLachlan, Billy Corgan, filmmaker Wes Anderson, The Roots, Wilco, Bright Eyes, and Ben Folds. Every issue includes a CD Sampler of new music, selected by the editorial staff, which allows readers to instantly hear the music they've just read about. Additionally, Paste distributes a special DVD Sampler with short films, music videos, clips from music & TV DVDs, movie & video game trailers and more.
