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

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 Denise Love

http://2lilowls.com

The textures and backgrounds from 2 Lil’ Owls are some of the nest in the digital art industry, and indeed many of the works in this magazine feature Denise’s textures — often several in one piece. Without question the photo-artistic community is so much the richer for the love and care Denise brings to her designs.

Foxeysquirrel

Immensely popular (and stunningly proli c), Foxeysquirrel is the name by which artist Teddi Rutschman is known around the world. Her artistic design kits bring together a wide range of styles — from the enchanted and purely whimsical to classic illustration, from the exquisitely ornate to elements with touches of dreamlike old world mastery.

http://www.mischiefcircus.com/ itKuPiLLi is the rather unusual name donned by Kirsi Rouvinen, the celebrated digital artist from Finland. The itKuPiLLi Imagenarium at MischiefCircus.com is a source for whimsical digital goodies, and the content Kirsi creates for our KAIZEN group is always greeted with excitement and enthusiasm.

Jai Johnson

Jai Johnson is a ne artist and the acclaimed designer behind “The Daily Texture.” Time and again when a work of digital artistry caught my eye, I’d nd Jai’s name listed in the credits as the texture designer. It took some time to get her, but I’m extremely excited to now have Jai an active member of our KAIZEN design team.

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

https://www.etsy.com/shop/JillCatrinel

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 years ahead.

Julie Mead

https://e-scapeandscrap.net It’s always exciting to see creative success stories, and Julie Mead has certainly become one! She stepped into the digital content scene not long ago it seems, but rapidly brought on a bunch of great designers (and of course created a wonderful stream of original content herself). We’re lucky to have her on our team!

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.

Recently we've brought on the talented photographer and artist Michelle Mondragon as part of our team (though she prefers to think of herself as a "creative"). She has been providing a steady stream of extraordinary content for our AWAKE artists to use in their compositions. We are beyond excited to have her with us.

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.
