Wel­come to… NO.1 FOR DIG­I­TAL ARTISTS Imag­ine FX

ImagineFX - - Editor’s Letter - Claire Howlett, Ed­i­tor claire@imag­inefx.com

A quote from Ma­ciej Ku­ciara in news this is­sue got me think­ing. He said, on page 31: “In this crazy world, peo­ple like to go tribal and only hear oth­ers who con­firm their own agenda.” He was mus­ing on his re­al­i­sa­tion that invit­ing a wide va­ri­ety of artists onto his pod­cast had helped him broaden his artis­tic hori­zons.

The dig­i­tal way in which we live our lives has placed us into our own bub­bles of agreed views and ex­pe­ri­ences. In art, it’s para­mount we don’t just fol­low an art style we favour, or only re­quest cri­tiques from peo­ple we know will give us a pos­i­tive re­sponse. I ask you to con­sider how you can reach out be­yond your own bub­ble and en­gage with oth­ers with dif­fer­ent art views or tech­niques.

On an­other note, I think there’s a fan­tas­tic se­lec­tion of art in FXPosé this is­sue. It’s at the front of the mag­a­zine for a rea­son – it’s your chance to show­case your art to the world. Why not sub­mit your work? Sim­ply send in up to five im­ages of ei­ther tra­di­tional or dig­i­tal art, along with their ti­tles and a short ex­pla­na­tion of how or why you cre­ated it. Add in a short bi­og­ra­phy, a head­shot and then email it to fx­pose@imag­inefx.com.
