LETTERFROM THEEDI TOR Something I never anticipated when I rst launched my Photoshop Artistry course (and later the advanced “AWAKE” group, whose artists create all the amazing artwork in this magazine each month) — was just how closely it would bring us together. And I certainly never anticipated how much GOOD we would be able to do in the world. But recently we saw the fruition of a particularly awesome project set in motion a year ago. As a group, and through pursuing the betterment of our artists, we managed to fund the excavation of a deep fresh water well in remote Tanzania. Partnering with the Care For Africa Foundation (the alliance orchestrated by AWAKE artist Dean Hohn), we at last got to see the initiative come together … And now, today, we have this incredible fresh water well in place, capable of supporting an entire community.

Because of this well, this community can now build a school and become a hub of learning and prosperity in its region, giving the children here future hopes beyond their former imagining. It really does make that kind of a difference. Might not change the world … but it HAS changed the world for these children. And this is just one initiative we’ve set in motion. There are so many great deeds ahead. I already see a dazzling array of adventures in our future, and so many amazing acts of hope and inspiration we can bring to life as our artists come together from all over the world and channel the power of their creativity and art to the task of enacting lasting change. It’s amazing really. And know what’s especially exciting?

We took a hopeful dream, and we made it a reality. Together. As a result, we now have the pride and excitement of knowing that we have truly engineered a major lasting change for dozens and dozens of families who until now were living in the most abject and desperate conditions. Because of this well, the women of this community no longer need to devote enormous amounts of time and effort walking great distances just to bring back enough water for the village to survive. Because of this well, the children no longer need to spend their days foraging with rusty cans for water found in dirty puddles.

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

http://www.katiepertiet.com/

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

http://www.rebeccamcmeen.com/

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.
