A visual arts magazine distributed on demand published bi-monthly. Think of us as a tactile and digital platform to share your work—Digestible visual and written information for artists by artists. Rocketlight is our escape.

How we started

A Venezuelan Creative Director and veteran US Airline Pilot made one of many crazy ideas reality. Rocketlight started out as a personal collection but soon evolved into a compartmentalization project of curated work. Today Shane and Juan take pride in hosting and archiving work with the artist in mind. Advertising and monetization is not our priority—less distraction, less noise, squelch adjusted. 

Juan Nino and Shane Qureshi play in Houston, Texas USA.


Our creative team decorates the best of published work. Rhodium, Platinum, Gold, and Palladium—Four precious metals awarded each issue for demonstrating professional skill, communication, exploration, and innovation. As a submitter you also receive credibility in the form of a digital tear sheet which can be traced back to us in the event you need a reference. Our goal is to eventually send every submitter a free physical copy of their issue. 


Submit your best work

Submissions are free. We value what you submit and in return you get tools to succeed, like a digital tear sheet(s) for free. Some works will also include video animation for social media. Not all work is accepted.
