LETTERFROM THEEDI TOR s e b a s t i a nm i c h a e l s

Hard to believe we’re wrapping up our second year of the worldwide phenomenon we call “AWAKE: Living the Photo Artistic Life.” Over 14,000 students have now come into the Photoshop Artistry course, and of those 2,000 have been allowed into AWAKE ... But from the imaginations of these amazing artists we’ve now seen over 2,200 PAGES of stunning original art published in this magazine, and over 4,000 of their nest images uploaded to our creative portfolio site ArtBoja.com — which just this past month of cially went live as a platform from which our artists can now sell their work as prints and canvases. These are exciting times. And they’re only going to get more exciting with the new AWAKE 2017

group about to start its journey in January. This time around, much of the top talent from the AWAKE alumni will be taking on the roles of coaches and mentors to the new students coming through. The possibilities this kind of encouragement and support will open to the group over the next twelve months should usher in an unprecedented cascade of achievements within AWAKE, to say nothing of the extraordinary reach AWAKE will come to have around the world. There is POWER in creative imaginations unleashed. And it’s happening. Here! - Sebastian Michaels Background Image by Jim Laskowicz http://artboja.com/art/kghhxj

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.

Tangie Baxter

https://shoptangiebaxter.com/

Tangie Baxter is the lead artist of her own wildly successful design company with over a decade spent as dedicated “purveyors of digital art journaling supplies.” Her material is quirky and fun, and always a delight. Bringing her onto our team was a big event for us. Everything here got a lot more exciting with her arrival!
