Mudkiss is now an archived site, there will be no more updates. Mudkiss operated from 2008 till 2013.


We are not a dedicated monthly magazine, we'd rather let our creative juices strike as and when. So some months we might be overflowing with an abundance of ideas, whilst other months we might be taking it a little easier. Although that month I have yet to witness. Here you can read all our updates and news on a bi monthly basis.
