Welcome to… NO.1 FOR DIGITAL ARTISTS Imagine FX
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
