Two-tone ‘tastic!

ImagineFX - - Imagine Nation -

I to­tally agree with Ryan David­son’s let­ter in is­sue 123. Whether it’s comic art or por­trait, work in black and white (B&W) is re­ally awe­some. Per­son­ally I love to work in B&W, es­pe­cially when it comes to por­trait art. For me, less colour digs deeper into the soul of the per­son be­ing painted. I only do faces with­out colour. I’d love to see an ImagineFX is­sue fea­tur­ing haunting B&W work.

Since read­ing ImagineFX my skills have de­vel­oped sig­nif­i­cantly, so thank you. I’ve at­tached some of my por­trait work and I hope you like it! Éti­enne Pas­cal, via email Beren replies Thanks Éti­enne, and that’s ac­tu­ally quite a timely let­ter to be writ­ing! I can’t say much more than… buy is­sue 126. You won’t be dis­ap­pointed.

Long live Claire

As a huge fan of ImagineFX since 2006, I’ve been so thrilled with the mag­a­zine and I think you’ve been do­ing a won­der­ful job. It’s my favourite mag­a­zine and ev­ery month I’m al­ways su­per ex­cited to get the new­est is­sue in the post.

I just wanted to write to vo­calise my sup­port for Claire since read­ing that let­ter in is­sue 122 that at­tacked her as in­ten­tion­ally sex­ist, and the pre­vi­ous let­ter that seemed to im­ply you were some­how ac­ci­den­tally sex­ist. One of the beau­ti­ful things about art com­mu­ni­ties and in par­tic­u­lar ImagineFX as a mag­a­zine and plat­form is its fo­cus on art and artists, no mat­ter who they are, where they come from, the colour of their skin or what’s be­tween their legs.

As such, it’s es­pe­cially sad­den­ing to see peo­ple try­ing to throw slan­der around, di­vide the com­mu­nity and drag iden­tity pol­i­tics into one of the most equal and open art plat­forms I’ve ever seen. As Her­nan men­tioned in the third let­ter of the same is­sue, the con­sis­tent fo­cus on the art above
