Sometimes, when we’re looking closely enough, time stands still,
reminding us to stay grounded.
There are few people I’ve met who are as present and in the moment as Ray.
The tragic accident that paralyzed his body has empowered him to move beyond the things
we take for granted, like crossing the street, and to accomplish tremendous feats of
incredible athletic ABILITY.
We are all fighting battles, but there are few heroes like Ray who raise the bar and through
their triumphs, help us to change perspective.

My series of 10 photos helps to tell his remarkable story

- Brian Bello- Artist, Performer- “Hey Tony...  Here's a couple pictures from the Secret Walls art battle last week.

Also, if you're interested in getting gifts for loved ones, I'm selling some of my art on t-shirts:
http://www.inna2nd.threadless.com

Another thing that might be interesting to mention, every Friday, I do something called #FreeBeeeFriday where I draw an original piece of artwork on a 5"x7" piece of cardboard and hide it somewhere in the city...any city...anywhere...I leave pretty self-explanatory hints on my instagram (@inna2nd). I've hidden them in Orange County to Sacramento to Amsterdam to Italy.

Have a great weekend!

Brian

(Editor’s note: On their web site, https://secretwalls.black/ourstory, Secret Walls claims they are, “The ‘Fight Club’ of the art scene, inspired by Marvel comics and graffiti. A fixture in the global art community for over 11 years, Secret Walls (Formerly Secret Wars) is the World's premier live art event.”

A link to this video is provided in the blog and we invite you to watch it and be moved by his passion for his art…

If you already are a part of a creative group or wish to start a group contact tony@tonylunacreative.com and word will be passed along to those interested, or if there are enough inquiries, we could announce meet-up times in this blog. Who knows, this could be the start of a creative movement…

- Justin Bastien- Adventure Photographer/Director-

Editor’s note: In a recent conversation with Photographer/Director Justin Bastien he mentioned he was off to shoot a piece for National Geographic in Yosemite, and that there was a new video on his website about how he prepares for and shoots his projects that was done for Red Bull and Vans titled, “Project Behind the Lens.” Justin was in one of our first classes in 2006 and he has come a long way in terms of fulfilling his goals of living the dream. We are proud of his accomplishments, and the accomplishments of all our Crafting a Meaningful Career participants, and we invite you to enjoy watching this video on his creative journey by clicking on http://www.justinbastien.com/about, and then playing the “Project Behind the Lens” video. It will inspire and delight you and encourage you to “Do what you LOVE to do!”

- Editor’s note: We have recently received several requests from people on our mailing list regarding either starting, or joining existing meet-up groups for creative individuals. One of the challenges of being in the creative fields is that we often operate in isolation and we seldom have an opportunity to meet up with other like-minded people who wish to share their stories and be mutually helpful. The groups could be casual coffee meet-ups, or more industry specific, or anything in between. If you are interested in either starting a group or joining an existing group, don’t be shy, just email tony@tonylunacreative.com and your requests will be passed along, or with your permission, posted in this blog. It would be a great way to find your tribe, and how we can encourage each other to continue creatively growing and doing what we LOVE to do!

IMG_5534.jpg

The group meet-up pictured above meets every Tuesday 4:30 to 6:00 when Art Center classes are in session. The group covers a wide variety of creative topics, and provides support by passing along important information while attempting to solve the world’s problems at Jones Coffee Roasters, 693 South Raymond Avenue, Pasadena. Come and join us if you are interested in meeting some of the people that inspire me on a weekly basis.

- Tony Luna Creative has a new website! After years of looking for ways to bring the web site up to date we are happy to say the TLC website it is now up and running. Big thanks go to the creative genius of individual sports and adventure photographer/director Justin Bastien, with technical assistance by Trevor Spruit. Thanks to them both for their guidance and expertise the web site and blog are in one easy to navigate location. This allows anyone who wishes to get the whole picture of what is offered convenient access to the support, inspiration, and networking offered.

One special note. The photo chosen for the home page was taken by Crafting a Meaningful Career alum Chuck Chugumlung after a lecture for Innovate Pasadena/Design X last year. You will notice that one of the people in the photo is our gracious friend and inspiration Dr. Soren Petersen who has since passed away. This photo was purposely selected in homage to his vitality and love for all things creative. The use of this photo is in his honor and brings us joy in remembering his friendship.

- Amy Gaskin, Photojournalist- “Hi Tony, Wonderful to hear from you! Thank you so much for writing.....yes, those are my shots.....cannot believe both of my images were chosen....such an honor.

I've been away from photography a bit…  but am now back in the swing of things.  Trying to catch up and dig out of the backlog.
One of my shots chosen by APA is currently on billboards and buses throughout Los Angeles.   A bit surreal, but fun…

Warm regards,

Amy

- FARIA RAJI, Fine Art Photographer

Shadow of Love (Nude, N.4) 2016, Faria Raji

- A solo exhibition of works by: FARIA RAJI

July 29 - August 25, 2017

Opening Reception: Saturday, July, 2017, 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Open Mind Art Space is pleased to present THEIA MANIA, a solo exhibition featuring mixed media works by Faria Raji. An opening reception will be held for the artist on Saturday, July 29th from 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM. The exhibition will be on view from July 29th through August 25th.

Faria Raji’s works are at once visceral and ephemeral the notion that amidst decay and misery the only vision that radiates promise is the figurative form. Rooted in the tradition of photography pieces go beyond the photograph; he destroys the surface of the images we selectively applying texture and impasto paint.

As individual photos uniquely call for. Raji will mark, burn, score, deface, paint, and modify each print to heighten and clarify its language.

In his most recent grouping of works titled THEIA MANIA, a Greek term meaning "divine madness from the Gods,” Raji utilizes photography and various construction methodologies to create worlds in which naked nymphs inhabit mysterious erotic realms. His artwork lives in a continuum where the dust of love and erotic desire has not yet settled. Raji attempts to immortalize the energy of life, a brief moment of enlightenment experienced at the time of ecstasy which produces a temporary loss of consciousness as every cell fires in unison.

The Story Behind the Bridge

Latitude: 34.134694 | Longitude: -118.166037

Originally named the Huntington Terrace Bridge when first dedicated in 1914, the name was changed within just a few years to the

La Loma Bridge

when La Loma Road received its new name. Re-creation of historic design features including the handsome balustrade, light standards and globes, were part of the recent restoration project and have brought the bridge back to its original appearance. Thank you’s are in order to the members of the volunteer Design Advisory Committee, including Ann Scheid, Chris Peck, Andrea Rawlings, Robin Salzer, Michael Krakower, Jesse Lattig, and Sue Mossman in overseeing the many nuances of the design, historic details, materials and finishes. The next seismic upgrade planned is for the Holly Street Bridge and will begin soon.

FROM LOS ANGELES

DE LOS ANGELES

Traveling is not only fun and refreshing, it is inspiring and brings pause, a sort of stand still in life. From there, new avenues open, unknown directions and roads appear and life takes a new path. This is the beauty of stopping. It is in fact accelerating our rides, our ideas, our desires. Traveling should be part of our everyday life so we can keep discovering…

NEW WEBSITE/NOUVEAU SITE INTERNET

I am happy to announce the launch of my new website in English and French. The web site included a wider range of my work from new photographs and series to videos and more.

J’ai le plaisir d’annoncer le lancement de mon nouveau site internet en Français et en Anglais. Ce site internet inclut un spectre plus large et complet de mon travail allant de nouvelles photographies et series a des videos et plus.

(Editor’s note) Many thanks to Cristina and Brian for sending in these photos of their high flying skills at the memorial bench for Tony and Paula Luna in Pacific Grove, California along the Monterey Peninsula coastline. NO, PAULAAND TONY HAVE NOT PASSED ON! They just wanted to have a memorial bench in their honor that they could enjoy before they do move on.

If you are in the Monterey Peninsula, and are so inclined, stop by our “memorial” bench and send a selfie doing what you “LOVE” to do. 

It is located at 1037 Ocean View Blvd., Pacific Grove, three doors down from Esplanade Street. Enjoy!

- Randii Oliver, Shamanic Fine Artist- “Hi Tony, I'm stunned and I need to share!!!!!  I just found out that some of my early digital artwork is in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, England, as part of a Digital Art collection that was gifted by art historian, Patric Prince. Patric is an old friend of mine whom I have lost touch with. She taught at Cal State LA, when I was a grad student there, and I was in several seminal digital art shows that she curated. I helped to run the Cyberspace Gallery in Los Angeles at it's inception in 1991, which she co-created with Michael Masucci.

I've been hidden away for so long!!!!!!! Never did I expect to have my artwork in a museum as part of the history of Computer Graphics! WOW!!!!!!!!!  I’m SOMEBODY!!!!!!!!  LOL!!!!!”

(And in a follow-up email…)

“Hi Tony, Attached is my digital image, ‘Mann’, which is one of the images included in the Victoria and Albert Museum permanent collection…   I also have the dates for the Hastings Branch Library show in Pasadena:”

(Editor’s note: The following Memorial article in honor of our dear colleague and friend Soren Petersen by Charley W. Bush, appeared in the Huffington Post, June 2.)



Soren Ingomar Petersen: One of the great design pioneers and mentors of our generation
In honor of Soren, this will be under 1000 words: short, joyful, and honest.
Soren, of course would have taken closer to 10,000 words. In Soren’s case all those words have been a testament to his generosity and joy in collaborating with people. I am now not just a better design researcher. Because of Soren I am kinder, more capable of experiencing joy, and have seen, first hand, what it takes to make a positive dent in the universe.
Soren accomplished more in his life than anyone thought he was capable of. As a dyslexic child in Denmark, he was told he was too “dumb” to go to school. His final position was as Dean of Academic Affairs at Niels Brock International, Denmark’s oldest and most recognized business school. I once asked him what positive changes he felt responsible for. I’ve done my best to remember what he said:
He first mentioned being on the team that created the first, non-military, Heads-Up-Displays [HUD] for race car drivers. In an effort to improve the safety of his team’s driver he laid the groundwork for what we call Augmented or Virtual Reality. Soren’ simply said, “I worked on the first Heads-Up-Display… That was so cool, I got to meet Ralf Schumacher!”
The second thing he said he was proud of was his work validating design’s impact on business. This is modest. Soren was to design what Steve Wozniak was to computers. After receiving a degree in both engineering and design, he spent over three decades researching design, (10 years working at BMW), and received a PhD from Stanford in Design Quantification. When Soren began his career, design was seen as a disposable service. While many people helped make it essential to business, very few could show how. By studying successful methods from design, engineering and business, Soren created an algorithm able to predict an entrepreneur’s chances of receiving initial funding that was accurate close to 80% of the time. Soren validated that design was a quantifiable science as well as an art form.
Soren and his wife, Marysia, began “Crowd-sourcing” long before the term was coined. In the days when computers were green type on black screens, he came across an automobile chat room and became fascinated with the way people shared things and collected feedback for a car company he was working for. One day after hours of waiting for someone to mention his company, he said he was about to give up when Marysia came in to let him know dinner was ready. After he explained what he was trying to do, she asked if she could add a comment. Marysia jumped on the computer and asked what people thought of his company. Then they went to eat. When he returned to the screen, hundreds of comments awaited. The car company wasn’t quite prepared to hear how much customers disliked their cars, but Soren pioneered part of what would eventually become CrowdSourcing

(Editor’s note: Marysia was kind enough to send along a link to the video of the memorial service for Soren. See and hear how this wonderful man embraced life as told by family and friends.)

Dear Friends and Family,

Soren's memorial service was a  wonderful celebration of his life...

Velvette De Laney, Principal Designer & Owner l dewdropstudios- “Hi Tony, Here's my post-graduation blurb…Hi fellow Schmoozfesters! I hope you're all well.

I did it! I completed my Master of Fine Arts degree in Design Research and Development this month at OSU. I'm now working on getting Venture Capital funding to turn my thesis research into a tech start-up. The research was initially on developing a tool to help Graphic Designers become more environmentally sustainable in their practice. I then developed a Journey Map that articulates a path that Designers, Clients. Vendors, and other stakeholders can take to become more sustainable. Since graduating, I've refocused the tool to help environmental managers of larger companies manage print projects. Fingers crossed I'll have really good news to report the next time I attend a Schmoozfest! I'll be staying in town for a while (rent is cheap and Columbus isn't so bad - there are a lot of hairy hipsters, though!), but I hope one day to move back home. Meanwhile, someone please give both Tony and Paula a big hug for me!”

- Alvalyn Lundgren, Graphic Artists, Instructor at ArtCenter at Night- “Hi, Tony: I wanted to report in with an update: I’m teaching Introduction to 3D Design at Art Center at Night on Thursdays nights this summer (at Art Center at Night). Class begins on May 18 at South Campus. I’ve attached an e-flyer.

An introduction to aesthetic theory, Introduction to 3D Design introduces the elements and organizing principles involved in designing form and space.
The course includes lecture, discussion, research and design assignments that help increase awareness, improve creative problem-solving ability, refine the design process, and increase technical ability.

From SCBWI’s “Kite Tales” newsletter, Posted by Sarah Parker-Lee, Managing Co-Editor in Contests and Grants, Mentorship Contest:
Long-time SCBWI member Carmel O’Mara-Horwitz submitted this year’s winning proposal to mentor an illustrator in the art of building a portfolio for the children’s book market. The contest to pick her mentee from among our Associate and Full members begins January 3, 2017.
The six-month mentorship, which runs May 1–Oct. 30, 2017, will help the chosen illustrator to evaluate and improve the art in their portfolio and to create a couple new pieces as necessary. O’Mara-Horwitz will focus the mentee’s learning on the following:
    •    Understanding the difference between making fine art or a single drawing versus storytelling with character development for a picture book – and how to convey this understanding in a portfolio
    •    Discovering and understanding the audience for a successful picture book
    •    Understanding book construction, pacing, and layout and how to convey this in a portfolio
    •    Exploring the different platforms for storytelling such as pop-up book construction, apps and digital media

- Ann Song- “Hi Tony, Hope all is well! Agnes Carrera introduced us a while back and I was asking her if she happened to know of a talented videographer [with some experience] who might be interested in creating a 4 part pilot video series that I'm working on called "In Studio With..."

Each 10 minute video would be an in studio visit with an LA fashion designer. Aesthetically and visually and editing wise, I was thinking about something like the following examples:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ilb42VdWFGQ
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rn-S95icfbc
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OdMH9amLu2Q
I'm interested in finding someone who might be interested in doing this first series for credit [and to receive exposure on our websites and through social media promotion]...

The goal would be to eventually get sponsors and then continue to create more series...which I would then like to continue working with the videographer and work out a fee...

Please let me know if you have any questions or if you happen to know of anyone...?

All my best,

We had attendees brave the elements from as far away as Newberry Park, Sunset Beach, and even Escondido!

- Gail Howland, Photographer, Faculty, ArtCenter for Kids- (Editor’s Note: the following are excerpts from an ArtCenter College of Design’s “Storyboard” article:)

Dear Friends of ArtCenter,
When I told my colleagues that I was considering getting my second degree at ArtCenter College of Design, some of them couldn’t quite wrap their head around the concept. They were familiar with ArtCenter and were aware of its reputation of having a demanding standard along with an intense curriculum. I certainly don’t remember having as heavy a workload during my undergraduate tenure at Berkeley.

There’s a reason that students come from all over the country to attend classes here. And it's not just rigor for the sake of rigor alone – far from it. Rather, it is this simple fact: when you leave ArtCenter, you feel like you can do anything – because, in a way, you can. Looking back, like so many of my peers who eventually ended up at ArtCenter, the seeds for my life as a creative were planted early. I knew I wasn’t interested in science or math – it was performing and the world of visual arts that fascinated me. It took a while to figure out what I was good at. I began studying ballet at a young age and eventually majored in Art History, both passions that I continue to explore to this day. After graduation, I came to discover what would be my defining passion and creative preoccupation: photography. I began by taking images of artists on stage before eventually focusing my concentration on portraiture. The idea that this could be a viable career option hadn’t occurred to me yet – it was initially a creative endeavor that I simply felt compelled to participate in.

ArtCenter taught me there was a career in photography. The College also provided a sort of meeting ground where I could interact with like-minded individuals who shared my same creative priorities and preoccupations. Over the years, one of my greatest joys has been being connected with the amazing folks who make up our alumni population. To call myself lucky in this regard would be an understatement.

Currently, I’m faculty in the ArtCenter for Kids program where I have been teaching black-and-white photography to children ages 10-14. It’s an incredible process to witness these young students, many of whom are operating from a place of pure artistic creation. They’re not old enough yet to know what the world thinks of them or their art, and thus, that preconception doesn’t color the work itself. Proper schooling and the quote-unquote ‘way to do things’ take a backseat to imagination and outside-the-box thinking...

Ultimately, it takes a lot of non-creative work to be a creative. Taking an art class should be as essential as taking a math or science class because it teaches you how to build a perspective. Giving these young people the tool kit necessary to forge their own creative point of view is truly gratifying. That same sensation I experienced all those years ago – that feeling that I could do anything – is something I see blossoming in the minds of my students, day in and day out. I hope you will consider supporting ArtCenter so these young artists may continue developing their creative perspectives.

Yours truly,
Gail Howland

- Pete Van Law, Producer, Documentary Filmmaker- What will the Natzler’s Treasures Reveal?

“I thought I’d exhausted the subject of the Natzlers and moved on to stories of my other relatives’ along with personal stories from a number of our readers.
But then a few a few months ago I got a cryptic email from a stranger named David D. In it he said that he had inherited some of Marlies Natzler’s photos, letters and more, all stored in a garage in West Los Angeles. He asked if I would be interested in seeing them. “Yes, of course”, I said, with a level of growing enthusiasm. Ever since I rediscovered Marlies Natzler, I found more questions about her family’s history than I found answers. So, I jumped at the opportunity.”

Go to the following link to read more about Pete’s fantastic journey to discover his past:
