LETTERFROM THEEDI TOR s e b a s t i a nm i c h a e l s It’s one thing to ip through the pages and admire the images. This is what most of us do. And the images are quite wonderful. Yet there’s a different way to approach these magazines I’ve found. But it takes a certain patience. Rarer still, it takes a willingness to slow down. ... A cup of coffee or tea helps. And a quiet, comfortable morning, or an hour well after the kids are in bed. Then come to these pages. Turn them but slowly. Linger.

If it’s a setting, allow it to come alive, and see what now might enter into view. If it’s a character we’re given, imagine the drama about to unfold, the action about to take place. Touch whatever is still and set it in motion. Then allow the story to spin into life as your imagination runs off with it awhile. For look here — we have a hundred or more images for you, a hundred mysteries and delights, each waiting to leap off the page and carry you away on its own unique journey.

And then (shhhhhh) listen … Each image is a story, you see. And if you look carefully, if you listen closely, the stories will begin to unfold for you. Because the frames captured here are only that: frames captured. The scenes from which they are drawn extend well before and well after the eeting dragon y blink of time shutter-snapped and pinned to the pages you nd here. But try this with me. Find an image that arrests your attention. (Almost any will do. They’re all alive, all waiting.) Now take it in. Breathe. Listen. And then … SEE. Let your imagination throw a spark to set the scene in motion for you.

You must be alert and attentive to catch it. But there’s a delicious sort of magic at play here, in which each image holds out an entire WORLD … rich with promise, suspended in time … and waiting just for you. ~ Sebastian Michaels

CONTRI BUTI NGDESI GNERS “ A WA K E � : L I V I N GT H EP H O T OA R T I S T I CL I F E Amanda Rockwell

http://www.brushworkshop.com

A professional designer with ScrapbookGraphics, Amanda Rockwell creates fantastic content for the AWAKE and KAIZEN groups. But I think her greatest contribution is in encouraging digital artists to get away from their screens and break out the art supplies now and then and actually have fun creating their own custom brushes.

Anna Aspnes

http://annaaspnesdesigns.com

Again and again in the work of my top students I was seeing one name turn up constantly when they were citing the source of the artistic content in their work: Anna Aspnes. When I visited her website I was stunned, and when I saw her work in Somerset Digital Studio magazine I knew that this was a talent I needed on my team.

Caroline Julia Moore

https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/CarolineJuliaMoore

Over the past two years, I’ve watched as the immensely talented Caroline Julia Moore shifted from cognitive neuropsychologist to full-time self-employed artist and conceptual photographer … all while also launching a successful content-design business. Her contributions to the group have been a delight and an inspiration.

Cheryl Tarrant

http://www.distressedtextures.net

Cheryl Tarrant is the brilliant creator behind the superb iPhone app Distressed FX and the immensely popular content design studio Distressed Textures. In looking at her artwork, one can’t but wonder if her images are paintings or photographs. And her textures are simply divine. We’re very lucky to have her working with us as a designer!

CONTRI BUTI NGDESI GNERS “ A WA K E ” : L I V I N GT H EP H O T OA R T I S T I CL I F E Janine van Holthe

http://jvanholthe.wix.com/janinevanholthe

Janine van Holthe is a rstrate painter based in the Netherlands. Our great fortune is that Janine is not only a proli c artist in her own right, but that she is also so incredibly generous with her time and talent, creating for the course some of the most impressive painted backgrounds I’ve seen.

Jen Maddocks

http://jenmaddocks.com

When some students introduced me to the work of Jen Maddocks, I was quite knocked at. Here was a digital content creator who was as fabulous an artist as she was a designer. We are lucky to have her in our community and MORE than lucky to have her material and tutorials here in “AWAKE” and “KAIZEN.”

Jill Catrinel

Jill Catrinel works out of her art studio just north of Asheville, making her one of the few designers here quite close to me. Her work is fresh and inspired, and it’s exciting to look ahead to everything I will be able to coordinate with her as the projects in the “KAIZEN” group evolve over the year ahead.

Katie Pertiet

The digital scrapbook world has evolved in a big way over the past few years, and Designer Digitals is a big reason why. While the Designer Digitals site hosts work by a wide range of talented content creators from all over the world, it is Katie Pertiet and her immense creative talent at the helm.

CONTRI BUTI NGDESI GNERS “ A WA K E � : L I V I N GT H EP H O T OA R T I S T I CL I F E Kim Klassen

http://kimklassen.com

Kim Klassen was one of the very rst truly world-class artists I had the immense privilege of working with when I rst launched the original Photoshop Artistry course. It was her textures (and her photography) that rst caught my attention. Only later did I realized how wonderful she is as a teacher as well.

Rebecca McMeen

Joining our team just this year, Rebecca McMeen has proven a tremendous hit with her extraordinary material, all of it so rich and complex, whimsical and artistic. Her unique style has made for a fantastic addition to the library of content our artists are now able to employ, and the resulting creations are endlessly charming.
