Strange times. Trying times. Unprecedented times. Uncertain times. Whatever you call these “times,” they have certainly been particularly challenging for those of us whose livelihoods depend on events with large gatherings of many people!
At the moment it seems as though many artists, unless they have the luxury of being able to financially “wait it out” or have taken on another job, are either attempting to get back to work in some capacity, or they are focusing on pivoting their business in a new direction. Both are difficult decisions that require a lot of hard work, and what’s the right choice for one artist isn’t necessarily right for another. We are all in different places right now, and that is why I feel that now is a great time for artists to share their varying perspectives and plans, and for everyone to open their minds and take in whatever experiences and advice are useful to them. For this reason, in the fall issue we have interviewed a variety of artists going back to work, and also those who are exploring other avenues for the time being.
I have also had the pleasure of interviewing Monique and Annabel, the creators of the wonderful new, online face painting platform called “Smile Creators!” The fabulous Elodie Ternois has not only done us the honor of answering our “Pro Artist Q and A” questions for this issue, but has also sent us a gorgeous unicorn step-by-step! Check out this issue for some fun Halloween glam inspiration by Marianne Janssen, a couple Minion step-by-steps by yours truly, and our face, body and belly art galleries!
