ImagineFX - - Workshops -

A few months ago I wrote an ar­ti­cle in Imag­ineFX on get­ting mo­ti­vated [see page 44 for how to get hold of is­sue 162]. One of those tips was em­brace the dreamer within you.

I re­mem­ber pick­ing up past is­sues of Imag­ineFX, hop­ing to glean some knowl­edge that would help me get my foot in the door of this in­dus­try. I con­tinue to cel­e­brate the dreamer that I was and still am, be­cause each art step has been such a gift. It was a goal I was happy to achieve when I was asked to be this month’s cover artist. My mind was blown!

I knew this would be more of a chal­lenge than nor­mal. The ben­e­fit of this cover project was to be able to see how that fac­tor af­fected me dur­ing the cre­ative process. Men­tal hurdles are abun­dant when I’m work­ing and each one gives me some­thing new to take away into fu­ture projects.

I’m ea­ger to dive into this and know that I’m con­tin­u­ing my growth as a cre­ative. This ac­com­plish­ment means so much to me and I’m grate­ful to get the op­por­tu­nity to share with you some of what goes through my mind when cre­at­ing a dig­i­tal por­trait.
