- URGENT REQUEST on behalf of loyal TLC supporter Tony Velasquez-

Editor’s note: We were recently informed that our good friend Tony Velasquez is without a home and without a computer to create his fantastical artwork and beautifully executed storyboards. Please help our loyal friend during this challenging time. Here is a note he wrote:

“Hello Folks, It’s Tony Velasquez here. I am a conceptual artist and storyboard designer, and 9 to 5’er who is in need of a very affordable guesthouse or roommate situation in Los Angeles County within the month of December. I am also offering to help with yard work, house cleaning, etc.

Please reach me at: 1-626-474-7916

VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!

Tony V.”

- Ibarionex Perello, Photographer, Podcaster- “Tony, I’m releasing my sixth book ‘Making Photographs: Developing a Personal Visual Workflow’ through Rocky Nook Publishing. It teaches the principles that I share in my photographic workshops where I teach people to see by breaking up a scene into light and shadow, line and shape, color and gesture. If people are interested in the book they can go to the Rocky Nook website and when they use the promo code PERELLO40 they receive 40% off the list price. Please share it if you would.

Take care and all the best.”

- Stephanie Zhong, Founder + Creative Director, Dear Anne Media- “It’s been a week since the 20th anniversary celebration of the paper clips project in Tennessee, and I’m still hunting for the words to express the overflow of love and hope I felt there. The Whitwell community was so welcoming. Everyone was trusting enough to get vulnerable, emotional, open in a short time. Or maybe they were beyond excited to talk about the ripple effects and miracles that came from learning about and meeting people seemingly different from them. I was blown away by the opportunities and relationships that came from this one project. My heart grew three sizes – so moved by everyone I met. Their stories were more remarkable than I imagined.

Meanwhile, fires started blazing back home. On the return flight home, I didn’t know if the Woolsey fire would reach my house. Jim had texted me the night before asking what I wanted him to pack in the ‘just in case’ evacuation bag (besides my wedding dress and Dodgerina, our turtle). I pictured our house (which is finally getting remodeled) burnt to the ground. For an instant, I felt a twinge of fear and devastation. But after standing inside a rail car that went from a symbol of death and hate into a permanent place of love, I felt a greater sense of peace knowing whatever were to happen, everything will be okay.”

p.s. You can watch the original Paper Clips documentary on Amazon Prime, Google Play, YouTube, and iTunes. If you live in L.A., I'm planning a potluck movie screening at my house in January.

p.p.s. Can't wait for you to hear the first episode of this podcast. We're a few hundred dollars away from reaching the first goal to get it made. Share or give if you feel called to: http://www.onlevelground.org/onesmallthing/

Best,

Stephanie

- Steve McCurry, Renowned Photojournalist-

Steve McCurry has been one of the most iconic voices in contemporary photography for more than thirty years, with scores of magazine and book covers, over a dozen books, and countless exhibitions around the world to his name. To read more about Steve go to

https://www.stevemccurry.com/blog and http://www.stevemccurry.com/bio

New Book: “Steve McCurry:  A Life in Pictures, by Bonnie McCurry” The selection of photographs includes Steve's best-known shots and more than 100 previously unpublished images. Also included are personal notes, telegrams and visual ephemera from his travels and assignments, all accompanied by his sister’s text, personal recollections and family stories.

“Most of my pictures are grounded in people. I look for the unguarded moment, experience etched on a person’s face. I try to convey what it is like to be that person, a person caught in a broader landscape that I guess you’d call the human condition.” - Steve McCurry

- Vahe Ala, Founder of FalconForce.com, Photographer- (Editor’s note: The following is an email sent in response to Vahe to find out what he has been doing since taking our Crafting a Meaningful Career class)…

“Hi Tony, …Pleasure hearing from you, Please feel free to tell my story. I have since moved to WY and been here for the last 3 years. It was my largest dream to execute, a decision I made in the summer of 1993, freshly out of high school when my brother and I went on a 41 day road trip to see 14 states. I bought an 80 acre ranch, with a 2,500 sf house built in 2011. I own some sheep and goats, chickens, and I built a 2,700sf barn for breeding falcons.

What can I say, life is beautiful…

Please keep in touch”

(Editor’s note: And in a follow-up email…) “Let me also say that in 2010 I started Falcon Force Inc. as a one man show, and as of this date we have 23 falconers working with us and we are spread between 8 states.

The goals are set high and dreams are murdered on daily bases. ‘Ambition is when you lean your ladder against the clouds and climb like it's no ones business.’

We are currently turning down work due to being selective and only taking on higher prestige clients, and the lack of professional help (falconers).

A few of our appearances;

National Geographic (Documentary Film); ‘Somebody’s Gotta Do It’ (Mike Rowe, Full segment); Storage Wars (Appraiser Guest); Los Angeles Times (Sunday Times Cover); Seattle Times (Sunday Times Cover); New York Times; ABC 7, Los Angeles, CA; Obscura Society LA, Los Angeles, CA; Seventeen Magazine; Speak Up magazine; Pacific Radio Network;

Thank you Tony for shining light on my passion

Regards,”

- Erv Nichols, Naturalist, Photographer, and Entrepreneur (Friend of CMC)- “Well today was the big race. I was pleased to win the silver medal for over 70 age group, and 4th for the 15 in the 60 and older. Would have won another medal for oldest entrant were it not for my friend John Bertrand in the 1 mile walk. (John's 93). Feeling great except for a few aches and pains. No marathons scheduled for the near future.

The sponsor was Presbyterian Hospital of Socorro, New Mexico. Event was a 5 k run, 1 mile walk. About 70 entries. Most around the campus of New Mexico tech.”

A must see video about the work of Erv Nichols and Sandra Noll documenting migrating Sandhill Cranes:

WHAT COULD YOU DO WITH A SINGLE CRANE (EAGLE, OSPREY) BAND?

Fall migration is on, followed soon by the Holidays. I have created new earrings for your customer’s choice. As always, each pair are authentic bands, handmade and wholesale for $7.50. Key chain items are $5.00. You can order by number with no minimum. All bands are in stock and should ship within 2 weeks.

- Leslie Kim, Graphic Artist, Fine Artist- “…I’ve been working pretty solidly as a freelance food package designer for Jo's Candies. They also have a lot of private label customers that need package design, so that means many new packages every year. 

I've also been working on improving my rock climbing t-shirt business Dynamite Starfish http://www.godynamitestarfish.com. This year was a big one for exposure. A group called Brown Girls Climb (advocates of diversity in the outdoor industry) used my products in a photoshoot for Elevation Outdoors magazine, so my shirts were displayed on the cover and in a pretty hefty inside spread too. I was a vendor a women's climbing festival in Los Angeles and met some great ladies there. A few more vendor events at gyms coming up too.

On the art side of things, I'll be having some art up for the month of February at Art Share LA's Perimeter Gallery. Mostly paintings, some prints, and a hanging sculpture.. basically I get 6' space to hang up whatever I want. I got rejected from a show in the main gallery, but this opportunity presented itself out of that submission, so I'm really excited about it! I'll also be vending at the DTLA Maker Faire on 12/1/18.

Things are great. It's a lot of hard work and ‘hustling’ for lack of a better word, but it's kind of the only way I can operate. I think of your class often and recommend it to so many friends who are looking to find more fulfilling career paths.”

- Jessica Truelyt, Artist, Ceramicist- ‘Hello ladies and Tony, It is hard to believe that it has been a year since we gathered weekly to explore what brings meaning and fulfillment to our creative lives. I think back to our class often with deep gratitude for the variety of perspectives and the vulnerability shared.

I wanted to let you all know that, with the encouragement and clarity gained from class, I’ve been pursuing my ceramic work more and displayed my work as part of the Hwy 62 Art Tours in Joshua Tree this month. There have been a few professional opportunities that I’ve considered and ultimately declined because I knew it would take me away from my creative production time. It’s a scary thing to say no to more money to pursue a passion, but I’m peaceful in the journey and excited to see where the path leads.

You each were inspiring to me in your own ways. I hope you each are well and finding creative fulfillment in whatever way is possible for you this season wherever you are in the world.

All best autumnal wishes,

Jessica

The Hwy 62 Open Studio Art Tours, http://www.hwy62arttours.org now in its 17th year, is a one-of-a-kind experience for art lovers and art buyers to create a customized self-guided tour of the 90 plus open studios in the Morongo Basin and to speak directly with the artists about their work and creative endeavors in the intimacy of their private work spaces.

Content Creator/Photographer Dennis Hill informs the attendees about the inner workings of the world of archival architecture photography.

On Thursday, September 6 a small but energized group attended the fall SchmoozeFest at the Art Center at Night’s main building 950 South Raymond Ave., Pasadena, from 6:30 to 10:00 PM.

The evening featured presentations by Photographer Dennis Hill, Visual Hunter Bill Wishner, and Dancer/Choreographer Cristina Benedetti.

If you would like to participate in the next SchmoozeFest mark your calendars for Thursday, January 10, 2019 and be prepared to be creatively energized!…

- Marina Diaz is participating in an art auction in support of “A Window Between Worlds" Sunday, September 30th. A Window Between Worlds supports “…survivors of trauma make art — by drawing, sculpting, painting, collaging, writing and more — their voices are heard and future potential is seen, often for the first time. This supports individuals, families and communities in processing their experiences and moving forward to less burdened and more productive living.” Your involvement will be greatly appreciated. Follow this link to the project: https://awbw.org/exhibits/heart-awards-2018/

- Stephanie Zhong is launching a funding campaign in celebration of the 20th anniversary of a project involving “…an audio documentary (podcast) about a group a students from rural Tennessee who ‘accidentally’ sparked a wave of empathy and interfaith connections around the world that's lasted 20 years – and is still going. Some people call it a miracle.” Please visit the web site and make a contribution for this worthy venture. The trailer and donor page is here: http://www.onlevelground.org/onesmallthing/

- From Marina Diaz, Artist- “Hi Tony, I'm in this art show. I hope all is well!

EXCITING ART NEWS.  

https://awbw.org/exhibits/heart-awards-2018/

Local Pasadena artist Marina Diaz is in “A Window Between Worlds" art auction Sunday, September 30th. Bidding is not available until Sept. 23 rd. “A Window Between Worlds” art auction promotes works with families impacted by domestic violence and offers healing through art. Art heals the soul, offers love, introspection and offers a new way to look at life.  

To help support “A Window Between Worlds” cause, artists have lowered their prices considerably for starting bidding. It is a great opportunity to purchase amazing and thoughtful artwork.”

About this Exhibition: “A Window Between Worlds’ is proud to present an exhibition of artwork, curated by MaryLinda Moss, to be auctioned to patrons and guests at our 2018 heART Awards brunch on September 30th.

About “A Window Between Worlds”: “A Window Between Worlds” collaborates with human service agencies across the country, training and supporting the staff at these partner organizations in facilitating our healing arts curriculum. These workshops provide a unique “Window of Time” for participants — a safe, non-judgmental environment where they can authentically express themselves in new ways.

There are multiple benefits to creating art in this type of environment, including improved communication and a renewed sense of possibility. As survivors of trauma make art — by drawing, sculpting, painting, collaging, writing and more — their voices are heard and future potential is seen, often for the first time. This supports individuals, families and communities in processing their experiences and moving forward to less burdened and more productive living. Since our founding in 1991, “A Window Between Worlds” arts programming has provided the creation of art as a tool for empowerment and healing to over two-hundred thousand adults and children who have experienced violence and trauma.

- Stephanie Zhong, Founder + Creative Director, Dear Anne Media- “Hi Tony! What's new with you, Tony? I have some news I'd like to share with you and other creatives. Since the class, I've been experimenting with different ways to bring storytelling is as my career. One concrete project has come out I'd like to tell you about.

I'm developing an idea for an audio documentary (podcast) about a group a students from rural Tennessee who "accidentally" sparked a wave of empathy and interfaith connections around the world that's lasted 20 years – and is still going. Some people call it a miracle. 

I've been funding it myself to this point (to make an audio trailer you can now hear). Now I'm launching a funding campaign to get to Whitwell, Tennessee to capture the 20th anniversary of this project.

If it inspires you, will you consider sharing with friends or becoming one of my patrons? No gift is too large or small and comes with perks.

The trailer and donor page is here: http://www.onlevelground.org/onesmallthing/

Please check it out, share it widely with your friends, colleagues, social media, anyone you know who would like the opportunity to bring stories of humanity at its best into the world with me. We need them more than ever.”

Best,

Stephanie

Tony Luna’s Lecture presented by PasadenaPhotographyArts-

“Finding Your Creative Voice: Everyone Has to Start Somewhere”

The Armory Center For the Arts

145 North Raymond Ave., Pasadena, CA 91103

Thursday, October 11

7:00 to 9:00 PM

Brief Description of the lecture:

The most challenging question people ask who aspire to become professional photographers is “How do I find my own unique voice?”

By drawing on his forty-five years as an Artist Representative/Producer of Film and Photography, along with his thirty-three years as an Adjunct Professor of Business Practice at the Art Center College of Design, and as a Creative Career Consultant, Tony Luna has studied and helped thousands of students and clients either start of reinvent their creative careers. He has had the honor of delivering lectures nationally and internationally, and he has written two books on how professional photographers began and maintained their careers based on their own unique visions. In this lecture, “Finding Your Creative Voice: Everyone Has to Start Somewhere,” Mr. Luna will examine the Stages of Creative Career Development, discuss the inspirations that led famous photographers to start their careers, examine the development of several up and coming photographers, and give several suggestions on how to discover your own creative path. If you ever questioned what it takes to become a successful photographer/artist this informative and inspirational lecture is for you.

In the words of George Eliot: “It’s never too late to be the person you might have been.”

It’s a chance to bounce ideas off of one another, gain support for our ventures, meet like-minded creative individuals, and of course, have some fun. It’s inspiring, enlightening, and the best way to spend an evening with people who have passion and purpose.

- Registration for the Art Center at Night/Public Programs fall classes has begun, and classes begin Saturday, September 8. Take a look at the catalogue of intriguing classes that can expand your world and your creativity: https://www.artcenter.edu/acn/coursedescriptions.jsp

Well, sign up for our class and learn how to ask the right questions that will help you to make a fulfilling career choice. George Eliot eloquently and with great insight is quoted to have said, “It’s never too late to be who you might have been.”

- Sorry for the late entry (due to the blog posting cycle) but Lee White, Assistant Professor of Photography at the College of the Canyons informs us that the Large Format and Zone System class at COC begins August 30. This “large format (4x5) B&W, perspective controls, ...will give access to the COC Black and White darkroom for the semester so some of the photographers might be interested in that class.”

- On Saturday, August 25, Jennifer Julian proudly announced the official Launch Party for her new movie production company, June Bug Pictures! We are exceedingly proud of her accomplishments and she has allowed us to share photos of the event featuring shots of she and her business partner, Holly Payberg along with supporters, and mock-up movie posters for her two main projects featuring historical female heroes. Best of luck Jen and Holly, the timing is right to set the record straight!…

- Jeremy Jackson informs us that he has completed a photo project for new sports drink, K+ Organics. A big catalog of images will be rolling out over the next year and we will be enjoying more of his work. Jeremy continues to delight us with his athletic and performance photography and we applaud his creative development. Check out hi web site to see more of his powerful work…

- Doug Breuninger lets us know that framed pieces and prints of his incredible art work of autos on Post It Notes (TM) have been on sale at the prestigious Petersen Automotive Museum. You may visit the museum to purchase his miniature masterpieces or you may go online to http://www.notablerides.com. Great work Doug, we remember your talking about your passion in class and now your work is available to an appreciative audience of automobile aficionados!…

As is the usual agenda our SchmoozeFest starts off with an announcement of events originated by people who have attended our classes, workshops, or lectures. After the introduction there are ten-minute presentations by any attendees who wish to share their latest achievements, or practice their pitches. And those presentations are followed by a chance to network with each other and see how we can assist our creative community.

- Lee White, Assistant Professor, Photography, College of the Canyons- “Tony, If you feel it is appropriate, would you include a note  in your Creative Update about the College of the Canyons’ Photo 280 Large Format and Zone System class – large format (4x5) B&W, perspective controls, pre-visualization which will give access to the COC Black and White darkroom for the semester so some of the photographers might be interested in that class.”

(And, in a follow-up email…)
 
The class starts August 30, so I’m late in getting this to you.  Registration is at http://www.canyons.edu/Offices/admissions/Pages/ClassSchedule.aspx. It is a 3 unit class so $138 for the class, $31 for student fees and $25 for parking.  Class is Monday and Wednesday from 1:05 PM to 3:25 PM.  I don’t have any student images for this class.  Questions contact me lee.white@canyons.edu.  As I said, this is an opportunity to learn to use large format equipment from COC and the school’s darkroom for developing and printing plus the Zone system.
 
Thanks for doing this.”

Jen Julian announcing the launch of June Bug Pictures...


- Jen Julian, Principal, June Bug Pictures- “Hi Tony, Great photos!! So here’s a bit about June Bug:

June Bug Pictures is a boutique production company focused on developing inspired, thought-provoking, primarily female-driven content for film, television and the digital space.
Our mission is to create content with the power to shift perspectives, spark imagination, shine a light on forgotten heroes and often cause us to laugh at our shared humanity.
Like June bugs, we are curious creatures, with a bold sense of exploration and a fascination with what lives inside our universe.
We are persistent little suckers, deeply inquisitive and just a little bit lovingly in your face, especially when we have a project we really believe in or something we need to find answers to.
We are creative shepherds.  Dream catalysts.  People artists.  We love what we do and who we do it with.  Above all, we play well with others…

 Congratulations June Bug Pictures!

It is nice to help others make a product for the first time.” Not only that but she has “…been making lesson plans for the museum to offer school classes that visit in the fall.

I’d love your first impression and whether or not you, or your students/colleagues would:

2) Why you would use this product?

- Carmel O’Mara-Horwitz, Children's Book Illustrator, Artist-

“Hi Tony. So I am happy to share with you the project I have been working on there last two years. I have been helping Faiya Fredman put together her show at the Oceanside Museum of Art. The show will be opening on September 1st.!
http://www.oma-online.org/fredman/
http://www. oma-online.org/exhibitions-oma/

This has been a great opportunity and I have been learning a lot! There are a few of us working as a team. We have worked with shipyards to get sculptures made… Finding printers and framers has been a good education. Faiya wanted to make some of her work into lenticulars and so I have been paid to learn how to make them with her. It is not my art but that has helped me see what it takes to get work ready for a show. For example, letting the curators pick the images without interference… since they see what you don’t.

With the team, I have also been creating products to sell in the gift store. We now have a coloring book. I translated her artwork into line art for people to color. Scarves, handbags, tote, bags, and jewelry, as well as greeting cards and postcards. This brings all my past work to the job. It is nice to help others make a product for the first time.

Last I have been making lesson plans for the museum to offer school classes that visit in the fall. We also plan some activities for anyone who visits the museum meaning adults and families.

Anyway, I am grateful for your class; it helped me look out of the box and recognize work.

Best wishes,

Carmel

- Michael Salvatore Tierney, Photographer- “A quick update on what I’ve been doing. I’ve moved out to Joshua Tree where I bought a house (1961 homestead) up by the boulders where all the lots are 5 acres. It’s been a year and a half and I’ve been doing nonstop renovations and rebuilding, doing all the work myself. I’ve really been enjoying the process and have met a great number of like minded fellow artists and creative types out there, many of whom are from New York, LA, or the Bay Area.

It would be great to catch up at Jones one of these weeks! I’ll attach a pic of some of my design and woodwork projects.

Talk Soon

Tony Luna Creative- Update- 6-30-2018

HERE ARE THE HEADLINES WHICH ARE FOLLOWED BY THE COMPLETE STORIES…

- Angel Mendoza showed his vibrant artwork based on Meso-american mythology at the AC Gallery in Hollywood on June 2. This is the beginning of more expositions by this truly original artist and we look forward to more opportunities for the public to appreciate his work. Well done Angel!…

- Brian Pescador allows us an opportunity to try to understand how photography saved him to reclaim his life after years of mental illness. He provides us with a link to a candid article he wrote on his struggles in the hopes of helping others who suffer from depression. This is a must read especially in light of the recent tragic deaths of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, and the challenges of everyday life in today’s complicated world. We are extremely grateful for Brian’s courage in sharing his story and encourage all to seek the help they need and to look to the value of art for a fresh look at the world.

- The next OPEN SHOW/Pasadena and East LA is to be presented at The Armory Center for the Arts, Pasadena, Thursday, July 12. The deadline for submission of photography artwork is Tuesday, July 3, and is open to all photographers on any topic. The purpose of the show is to “strengthen our photography community and bring together the public and artistic community in discussion of photography.” There is no theme and you are invited to show your best project. Good luck!…

- AC Gallery, Hollywood, California is “currently accepting artists working in all media for ART in LA for LA afFAIR 2018 - the inaugural boutique art fair presented by AC Gallery from Friday, August 17th to Sunday, August 19th, 2018.
ART in LA afFAIR will showcase independent, emerging artists presenting solo projects and works with an emphasis on contemporary fine art in all media including painting, sculpture, photography with edition prints and unique merchandise also available to the public. A maximum of 30 artists will be accepted on a rolling basis to exhibit during the art fain at AC Gallery LA.”…

- Andrea McCarthy, from AcademicKeys, has again generously shared a list of job opportunities in the arts at institutions of higher learning around the world. Listed in this blog is a small sample of the opportunities. More jobs are listed on the web site for Academic Keys, Inc. Take a look. Who knows, the right job may be listed there for you.  Thank you Andrea for making these notifications possible…


… AND NOW HERE ARE THE COMPLETE STORIES:

On the evening of June 2 the work of long time supporter of Crafting a Meaningful Career, artist Angel Mendoza, showed his work in a collaborative art event at the AC Gallery. It was great seeing the response of the attendees to his work which focuses on his blending of Meso-american mythology with influences from graffiti composed while using contemporary graphic technology. His vibrant work brings ancient Olmec, Maya, and Aztec narratives to light in a way that simultaneously delights and informs leaving the viewer wanting more from this truly unique artist.

(Editor’s note: I urge all to click on the link provided which will take you to the insightful and candid c-heads.com web site article written by Brian Pescador about how photography helped him get his life back after years of mental illness. Thank you Brian for generously allowing us to reposition the article in the hopes of helping others who are challenged and in need of hope.)

- Brian Pescador, Photographer-

“Hey Tony, I hope you are well. I just wanted to share this with you. I was interviewed this week by this fashion magazine and it just came out this morning. I am so proud of it and wanted to share it with you. If you could share on your blog that would be awesome. I hope what I wrote about could help others.

Thanks for your time & all the years of friendship and wisdom.

(And in a follow-up email…)

“Tony, …Thanks so much again Tony for reading my new interview. Please share it with anyone, who you think might be a little down. I really hope it could give other people a better idea as to what is going on now in the world.
From the time I finished this interview last week the world tragically lost Kate Spade & Anthony Bourdain. So many people can’t understand why they did it. People are saying they were so successful and they had it all. I hope after reading what I wrote they might get a new perspective.
Thanks again and talk soon Tony
-Brian”

Tony Luna Creative- Update- 5/31/2018

HERE ARE THE HEADLINES WHICH ARE FOLLOWED BY THE COMPLETE STORIES…

- Our SchmoozeFest! on May 10 was an exciting evening with a small group of high-powered creatives presenting their innovative ideas and exchanging information (ie: “schmoozing”) the night away. The next SchmoozeFest! event will be Thursday, September 6. Start getting your act together and be a part of our creativity community’s support group.

- Angel Mendoza will be an essential part of the WATERWORKS! group show at the AC Gallery VIP PREVIEW this Saturday, June 2 starting at 8:00 P.M. The show at 1546 North Highland Avenue, Los Angeles will continue until June 23. Angel will be presenting his unique interpretations of Meso-American mythology utilizing modern technology. Come and support his artistry!…

- Brian Biery invites us through his newsletter to “the next Open Studios art tour in North Pasadena and Altadena!” He will be exhibiting his photographs “(including some new ones!) with four other exceptional artists at Kolhatkar Studios” on Saturday, June 2 from 11:00 to 5:00 P.M., and Sunday, June 3 from 12:00 to 6:00 P.M. at 1841 Santa Rosa Avenue, Pasadena. This event will be a venue on the tour of Pasadena studios, so start your tour there and then visit dozens of other locations featuring every manner of art. It will be a great way to see the variety of art that is being produced in the Pasadena area and you can support Brian in his efforts as well!…

- Jillian Suzanne shares the great news that she exceeded her Kickstarter goals in raising the funds to continue her latest fantastic project, “Dream Traveler-(TM)”! She also announces her new web site for Playful Exchange which contains “…helpful information, articles, blogs, announcements of playful-tools and activities in development.” Jillian has developed an exciting way to teach children to engage in learning and engage life in a playful way. We are proud of her accomplishments since taking our classes and getting her masters degree and we encourage her to keep creating wonderful worlds through her art!…

- Bill Wishner informs us that his new book, “Artifacts” is now available for purchase. This work is the “first in a series of publications documenting a 6-year photography project “Art of the City Wall” (2011-2017).” Through this book we have a window into his unique findings as he sought out visually intriguing images around the world and captured them for our contemplation and enjoyment. We are fortunate to have available this compendium of his work and look forward to future publications. Thanks Bill for your keen vision and thoughtful artistry…

- Ann Monn has created an intriguing new product line titled, “Ampusapien.” What makes Ampusapien so intriguing is that it is comprised of “artistic covers for prosthetic legs.” The artwork is spectacular (of course since Ann designed them!), and they are unique in the world of prostheses. Ann, you are to be congratulated for your humanitarian concern and bringing your artistic talents to the world of the disabled. Click on her web site to experience her distinctive designs…

Wow, it’s hard to believe but it’s that time of year again when we get together to share news of what we have been up to as we follow our career evolution dreams. The date of our next SchmoozeFest is Thursday, May 10 and the time will be 6:30 to 9:30 P.M. so start putting your Power Point, Keynote, or whatever presentations together so you can share the adventures of your creativity with other like-minded talented people. Come and be inspired by people who have taken their careers to the next level and are eager to share their work with everyone, and then mingle as we network the night away and enjoy each other’s achievements…

- Crafting a Meaningful Career- Part One- Discovering the Dream will begin the summer session on Tuesday, May 15 at 7:00 PM and will end August 14. This potentially life-changing class will help you to take a deep dive into what will motivate you to lead a more meaningful career. To get a good idea of what this class has meant to others read some of the Success Stories in the Inspiration section of our blog and follow the progress of past participants: https://www.tonylunacreative.com/inspiration/

- Crafting a Meaningful Career- Part Two- Forming the Dream, and Crafting a Meaningful Career- Part Three- Fulfilling the Dream—the follow-up classes to Part One—are also offered during the summer term. Each is a six-class meeting in which the participants create a business plan outline involving research and due diligence to launch their new venture. Once the dream is discovered then a plan has to be developed providing a road map for success…

- Thanks to the four creative professionals— Craig MacGowan, Loren Tripp, Agnes Carrera, and Percival Carino—who participated in the mock job interviews for our Presentation and Career Preparation students, and for the two-member critique panel—Nathan See and Lawrence Crandall—for our Professional Presentation/Photo class. Their insights and feedback were greatly appreciated and will help our Art Center students have a head start as they apply for jobs as emerging professionals. A job well done!…

- Erv Nichols and Sandra Noll notified us that the video that featured them, “Migrating with the Sandhill Cranes: Follow the Journey” is now ready for viewing. The subtitle to this work describes it as, “This MNN (Mother Nature Network) film follows one couple’s love of these magnificent birds.” This is a must see film filled with beautiful images of nature and inspirational messages by two incredible and dedicated people…

- Bill Wishner, Visual Hunter, invites us to the reception and showing of his magnificent art work searched out in Berlin and New York through his gallery showing at Walt Girdner Photo Studio & Gallery, May 5 to 26 in Pasadena.

(Editor’s note: Erv and Sandra are much too humble in their announcing this film about their incredible dedication to preserving the many wonders of our planet. This is a beautiful film and I encourage everyone to take a few minutes to view it and to celebrate the work these two marvelous people have done. Especially pay close attention at the end of the film where Erv says—and I am paraphrasing now—“Try to pick out those moments in your life when one little thing has made a difference to you, and that moment has changed your life. Maybe it was deciding to have children. Maybe it was that moment you wanted to be a baker, or a cook, and you’re in finances or something like that. Act on that. I just say it will be much more rewarding when you get to my age to look back on life and say okay I did what I wanted to do and I’m happy. In the back of your head you know you should have done this, or you should have done that. Do it! Do it before it’s too late!” Thanks Erv for summing up the values we promote and for doing what you and Sandra love to do.)


- Email from Sandra Noll and Erv Nichols, Nature Heroes, Nomadic Naturalists- “Hi, if you’ve got about 10 minutes, check out this site https://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/animals/blogs/migrating-sandhill-cranes-mnn-film-exclusive-bryan-nelson .

It’s the premiere of a short film made by a talented filmmaker Bryan Nelson that’s pretty much a culmination of our life as 'craneiacs.' It’s what we do and why we do it along with some beautiful footage taken by him along our journeys. I think you will enjoy it.
Your thoughts and comments appreciated.”

 “The other photos are from when I participated in Global Dental relief in Nepal and when I did missionary work helping Syrian and Iraqi refugees in Jordan. I also have a ‘Be Still’ Retreat that I run at my beach house for women who need to be still when they are facing major decisions and need to get away for a few days to take time to pray and listen to the Lord for His guidance.“

“The other photos are from when I participated in Global Dental relief in Nepal and when I did missionary work helping Syrian and Iraqi refugees in Jordan. I also have a ‘Be Still’ Retreat that I run at my beach house for women who need to be still when they are facing major decisions and need to get away for a few days to take time to pray and listen to the Lord for His guidance.“

Laura Elliott, Writer/Author- “Dear Tony, I’m writing to you about a dream come true. There’s really no words to say how happy I am in my new career and I know I would never be here without you. As you know I was pretty deep in despair when I came to Art Center to help me find a way out. What would I do now? How would I support myself in my uncertain future?

Well, I’ll never forget the chart we did juxtaposing our professional careers and personal lives in order to see our patterns. At the end of class we determined that my path would marry my passions for writing, travel and missionary work. It was all really great information but I had no idea how to apply this information to real life and how I would support myself.

I guess my message to people who are where I was is to just take the first step and follow your passions and pray for the Lord’s guidance.

The obvious things like travel writer or screenwriter not only seemed like long shots but as almost everyone, even a professional coach I hired to help me progress, would point out they all paid poorly. But I didn’t listen.

I charged ahead taking aim at the dream and the unseen, trusting in the Lord to show me the way. I had lost everything. I had no money. I had no idea how I would make my life work. At one point while I was taking your class I had to pay for my rent by pawning my jewelry, so pie-in-the-sky ideas shouldn’t have really even been on my radar. But I chose to put my walk with the Lord first above anything I understood. And I listened to where he called me to go.

After selling everything I had and journeying around the world twice, to 24 countries on 6 continents I now have a dream career and have made my dream of doing missionary work, living on the beach and owning a yacht come true too! It’s a crazy story but a wonderful story. I am a ghost. And since I also write about spirituality I guess you could call me a holy ghost. I smirked when I realized this because I remembered your challenge to us to figure out a great title so at a cocktail party people will ask you questions. …My business card lists my business address in Singapore :)

Today I am a contributing writer at World Travel Magazine and have gone on media trips that are fully paid for, my next one is to South Africa to survey Cape Leopards for three weeks this October. I write luxury travel articles and interview profiles that focus on life-changing, planet-healing travel featuring self-discovery, pilgrimages, eco-travel and journeys of the heart.

This is my biggest interview to date: https://www.wtravelmagazine.com/choreography-of-architecture-saving-the-planet-with-leo-dicaprio-and-the-romantic/

I have also sold my first screenplay for an episodic documentary series and the TV pilot is in production.

I am so happy because I live just about 10 minutes away from my girls and a five-minute walk from my yacht at Santa Cruz Harbor, where I sail with my partner, a sea captain, as much as possible.

Life sure has a funny way of working out. Right after I became partners on the boat with Joseph, about a year ago, I began to write for sailing companies and cruise lines. I even got invited on a media trip to LA (all expenses paid) to attend the CLIA show where I made a lot of connections and have a new piece coming out in World Travel Magazine about Beyond the Ordinary and Behind the Scenes Cruising. I write luxury travel so that has been very fun. This of course led to many more opportunities to write for other magazines and outlets as well :)  

Thank you so very much for believing in me and for your wisdom. I think of you all the time when I bid on jobs. And every time I learn a lesson about how I could have done a better job of bidding. I constantly reference your advice on good business relationships––good communication based on respect all on a foundation of trust. This is my North Star in business.

Have a wonderful week!  And thank you for the encouragement!!!

((hugs))”

- Steph Zhong, Creative Director- “Hi Tony, Happy belated 2018! Hope your year is off to a great start.

I wanted to share the release of a new online magazine/community I created called Zim Zum (http://www.zimzum.us). Thanks in part to taking your class, I was able to merge my love of storytelling, graphic design into a project meant to counter the rising culture of hate and intolerance we live in today.

This is an online place where people can come to restore their faith in humanity. By discovering or sharing stories of people who find love, friendship, connection, healing in unlikely places–with people they originally perceived as too 'different from them."

We're currently running a call for stories and invite past classmates to pitch stories (in any medium) for publication. The pitch guide is here, http://www.zimzum.us/pitch-us.

Above all, thank you Tony. You pushed me to find a way to make my passion for storytelling and design into a career. I'm on my way.

Hugs,”

About Us: Restore your faith in humanity, love what makes you different and connect with people from all walks of life. Zim Zum is a destination for stories to counter the rising tide of hate speech, fake news and screaming heads. Come to read, watch, or listen to stories of people stepping out of their comfort zones to meet someone they might not normally connect with. By curating these stories together in one place, we remind ourselves that humans are fundamentally compassionate, generous, teachable and giving. And if you’re looking to expand your perceptions of others, lighten up your bias, and own who you are, this is a safe and encouraging place to grow.

- Percival Carino, Graphic Designer- “Happy Monday, I finished the LA Marathon at 4:02. This was a testimony to my hard work and the love and support I have from my partner, family and friends that believed in me. Last year I finished the marathon at 4:58 mins. I shaved 56 mins from last year to this year and this clearly tells me a lot of what my capacity is not just from my personal work ethic but also on the things I am passionate about. I am excited to discover more about myself and the new chapter I am opening. I am very blessed, honored to share this with all of you as this was unexpected and I am so proud of my efforts.

Thank you and see you guys Tuesday night (in class).”

- Karen Lau, Creative Director- “Hey Tony- How are you?
Was wondering if you know any producers/production company that would be a good partner for me to work with on Veterans Administration Public Service Announcements, VA PSA’s.
I’m in the market to look for a new partner. They have to be good people…wanting to work for a good cause or they will become resentful of all the paperwork and bureaucracy.

Hope you are well!

Cheers,”

I wanted to let you know of a couple of updates for me. I love reading about everyone else. I started back at college last week at Pasadena City College. I’m studying for my Associates Degree to jump over with a transfer to USC or Cal State University to finish my BA in either Linguistics or Political Science. I’m really enjoying it so far. We already have tests and exams happening this week. It’s quite a change.

Speak soon,”

- Erv Nichols and Sandra Noll, Nature Heroes- Update on our reinventing careers…

“Here's Sandra preparing for our interviews (5 hrs!) for a short film being produced for MMN.com, Mother Nature Network. It's our 15 minutes of fame-actually 10 or so- about people with a passion for cranes. It was all very professionally done and, actually a lot of fun! Should be ready for view in a month or so. Stay tuned.”

Editor’s note: The following was first published in ArtCenter College of Design’s “Storyboard: Mapping Scenes from a Creative Life” a behind the scenes series by members of the ArtCenter community. I have had the honor of working both with Sarah Ellis and her mother, Alvalyn Lundgren, and find them to be two strong, talented, and inspiring women and thus we are privileged to include this essay in this issue.

- Sarah Ellis, Photographer-

- Dear ArtCenter Friends and Family,

    My mom was an ArtCenter illustration major who graduated in 1978. She took me to see the student galleries as early as when I was a year and a half old. By the time I was six, ArtCenter became a place I understood to be important in her life.
    
    The possibility that it would play a role in my life was remote. I came from a single-mother household where money was tight. As I grew up with ArtCenter on my radar, I knew that my mom couldn’t afford to put me through college and that – if I really wanted to attend this magical place called ArtCenter – I would have to do it on my own terms.
    
    I’ve liked taking pictures ever since I got my very own camera at the age of twelve. I took it with me everywhere, from school to road trips with my family. Even as a kid, it was always about more than just taking a pretty picture – there was a larger, more abstract truth I was trying to wrestle with, one that I couldn’t fully put into words yet. At a college recruitment fair during my junior year of high school, I got to talking with someone about enlisting in the Marine Corps. I just knew that I had to seize control of my fate. At the time, I wasn’t thinking about ArtCenter, though as I since learned, the school has a rich and     well-documented history with its veteran alumni.
    
    I was enlisted in the Marine Corps boot camp from July 10th to October 6th of 2006. It was often hellish. The toll it takes on you can be considerable. And yet, my fellow Marines and I ended up bonding off of the experience we shared – somehow, we had managed to graduate from this unforgiving place alive and in one piece. You tend to see people’s true colors with great clarity when you’re trapped in a foxhole     with them, and there is no truer manifestation of that credo than the Marine Corps.
 
    In the Corps, we ascribe very much to the philosophy of “one body, one spirit.” You are trained to look out for your fellow man or woman. It’s not easy, but no path to greatness ever comes from being selfish– nor does it come from convenience. I entered into the Marine Corps as a caterpillar and emerged a butterfly – albeit one who was coated in mud, sweat and tears. A lot of that Marine Corps mentality has transferred over to my time at ArtCenter. Though I don’t make comparisons to military service with any degree of lightness, there is in fact, an overlap between the two pursuits.
    
    Like the Corps, ArtCenter requires that you be orderly and disciplined, giving 110% of yourself each and every day. Throughout the various trials and tests of endurance, you develop a family of sorts. Maybe you don’t think about it as much while it’s happening, but as you get closer to graduation you start to think “I’m going to be calling that person at some point down the line and asking them for a favor.”
    Through my output, I try to strike a balance between work that is both commercial and deeply personal. In many cases, the former helps to pay for the latter. In my photography series “Project V,” I examine the metaphorical concept of the “masks” that veterans must wear when they re-integrate back to society. In the civilian world it’s hard to find an equivalent to the automatic brotherhood or sisterhood I found in the Marines – you’re on your own, and if you want something, you’re going to have to get it yourself. Civilians can’t really understand where we come from unless they experience it themselves.

    The same is true of my ArtCenter community. There is a sacred connection that is only experienced here that the outside world may never get a full glimpse of. I haven’t even turned thirty yet and somehow     I’ve managed to survive both ArtCenter and the Marine Corps. Some days, I can’t decide which one was more demanding.

    Yours truly,
    Sarah Ellis
    ArtCenter Student, Photography

In Case you missed any of my last three blogs, here they are: The most recent is called…  https://forthelifeofme-film.com/2018/01/11/rendezvous-in-hannover/
“It was 2005 when my wife and I were in Berlin at the tail end of a trip that had taken us through the Italian Lakes country, and then on to Berlin to meet my cousin, Helen and her family.
My cousin, Helen 2 or her 3 boys, and husband, Colin at the Hard Rock Cafe. They were flying in from London. We spent a number of delightful days together, exploring the city, from the Jewish Museum to Berlin’s Hard Rock Cafe and points in-between.
After Helen and her family left to return home, I made arrangements to meet my German friend, Ralph, in Hannover, since he lived nearby in Celle. My ideal schedule was first to spend the morning exploring where my parents lived, before they came to America. And then we would go on to meet Ralph and his wife someplace of his choosing, for afternoon tea.
I phoned him from our hotel room for instructions on how and where to meet. He suggested that we take the morning express to Hannover that leaves Berlin at 9:30am. Then we should meet at the Wilhelm Busch Museum, and have tea outdoors in their lovely garden. Ralph assured me that it should take less than two hours, since Hannover is only 180 miles or so from Berlin. We could get our tickets once we got to the station. All we had to do was go to one of the many kiosks located in the main lobby.
‘Easy peasy’! Right?
WRONG!!!”

- Regarding John Chua and Harvey Chua- It is with great sadness that I relay the news that renowned photographer John Chua has passed away. He has not only inspired talented young photographers in his home country of the Philippines but he instituted many advocacy groups which, among others, serve children with special needs and persons with disabilities, indigenous people, and people yearning to follow their passion. John, you will be dearly missed but never forgotten. His loving wife and business partner needs our support through these tough times. We must remember to celebrate his accomplishments by reaching out, in our own unique ways, to help others each and every day…

- John Chua and Harvey Chua-

(The following is an excerpt from the Inquirer.net article by reporter Jhesset O. Enano on the life of beloved photographer John Chua:
One of the country’s leading figures in photography, Chua passed away on Jan. 6 after a long battle with colon cancer. His ashes were interred at Heritage Memorial Park. He was 69. A self-taught photographer whose career spanned over four decades, Chua was considered a pillar in different genres of photography, including advertising, industrial and aerial work, and earned the moniker ‘Magic Eye.’”

Mrs. Harvey Chua wrote the following: ‘Thank you. We’re continuing to be showered with love from so many people who loved John.

We will continue to do his advocacies, and put up exhibits of his photos - on the Ifugaos and the famed Banaue Rice Terraces, his aerial photos plus photos of his cross-country ultralight flight, his advertising works, and of activities he did for special children and persons with disabilities.

As a self-taught photographer (he only finished high school), he was very impressed with your school. He appreciated the help that you extended to me when I started teaching “Business of Photography,” and “Marketing Strategies for Photographers…”

G-nie, our photographer who has been with us for 25 years, will continue with Adphoto. I hope to continue sending updates on Adphoto and G-nie’s works. I hope to continue receiving updates from you.

Best regards,”

In the tutorials you will see my creative endeavors, such as making leather handbags, easy earrings and necklaces, easy knitting projects like purses and scarves. However a lot of work and time is needed to make  one video.  This is where I need your help your support. Your support will provide me with funds that I need to purchase art supplies, a better computer and filming equipment to help me make more videos and give me more time to produce more artwork and help with my monthly expenses so I can work as an artist full time.  As a thank you I will be offering high-quality digital prints of my art work, and longer time-lapse videos with step-by-step instructions. Monthly giveaways. Thank you !!

- Ailene Michel-  “Tony, and thanks for keeping me in your newsletters. I love seeing everyone moving and doing things even after Art Center.  I'm looking for a painting teacher who can come to our Porter Ranch classroom 2-4 times a month to teach a 2-1/2 to 3 hour class in Porter Ranch. The criteria is that they are a skilled painter, that they love what they do and that they like people. Ideally someone good with both adults and children. Do you have anyone in mind? Thanks so much and big hugs from me and the family.”

-Ailene

P..S. Knowledge and skill in both acrylic paints and watercolor. Thanks again!

- Dana Walker, Managing Director, Public Programs- “Hi Tony, Happy New Year!

 - From Jenn Julian, Producer, Presentation Coach- “Sir Tony! Great to hear from you as always. …Last time we spoke, I told you I was about to teach my first pitch coaching session.  I just wanted to say thanks so much for your insight and help in structure around that.  The session went very well and the client felt he got a lot of value!
 
Also, wanted to share some fun news –  in Hollywood, if it’s in the trades, it’s official…and it’s in the trades!"
 
https://www.screendaily.com/news/june-bug-pictures-launches-following-afm/5124224.article

(The following are excerpts from the Screendaily.com article)
AFM pitch conference aces launch June Bug Pictures
By Elbert Wyche 14 November 2017
Jennifer Julian and Holly Payberg have launched June Bug Pictures after two consecutive years of runner-up wins at the AFM Pitch Conference.
Producer and partner Julian pitched Free Hunter this year, which centers on the first and greatest female fighter pilot in history. In 2016 she pitched Marlene, about 1920s German cabaret star and Hollywood film icon Marlene Dietrich.
…Both projects are being packaged by Jon Levin at Roar, with production counsel handled by Ann Clark at Greenberg-Traurig. The companies plan to begin production in mid-2018.
June Bug was launched with the goal of developing inspired, thought-provoking, female-driven content for film, television and the digital space. ”Like June bugs, we are curious creatures, deeply inquisitive and just a little bit lovingly in your face, especially when shepherding the stories we believe in. At a time when this important shake-up is happening in Hollywood, we’re proud knowing we do what we do with enthusiasm and integrity,” Julian said.
Best,
Jen

- From Emily Snyder, Artist- “Hello to the network of the beloved Tony Luna!
As described on my art auction website ( https://www.32auctions.com/Emilyjsnyder ), a bicycle accident that occurred in April led to my jaw breaking. My mouth was wired shut for five weeks and complications from this surgery led to emergency dental care.

My auction has ended but I still have works for sale that you can purchase directly through me via PayPal or Venmo. List of works here:

CHEERS TO ONE YEAR IN BUSINESS!

What we’re looking forward to in 2018, and our gift for you!
Looking back on this first year, I’m filled with so much pride. As many of you know, when I started, I had just left my job with General Assembly, had no concrete plan in place, and not clients, and OH YEAH, I was 1 month pregnant at the time. Get the full story on my startup via my interview with Business Rockstars https://www.facebook.com/bizrockstars/videos/1531435646938028/?hc_ref=ARR03mgikmKAj5ra9diQW0ibXzWG2srLw1yhZiS2qGrSWTW7nBCRpaGG4q0rDRnJIhk&fref=gs&hc_location=group
Now I’m happy to say that our boutique branding studio is thriving. I work with an amazing team of freelance creatives (graphic designers, copywriters, photographers, and soon videographers). We’ve worked with wonderful clients that I’m happy to promote. And we have so much in the pipeline for 2018! Here’s some goodies we have to share!

My Gift to You
I’m so humbled by all of the love and support I’ve received this year. As a thank you, I’ve created some beautiful desktop calendars to bring a little cheer to your work all year long! Get your gift here, http://www.robynyoung.co/calendars

Branding Bootcamp
Get your brand set up for success in the New Year with the full day, hands-on Brand Like a Boss Bootcamp http://www.robynyoung.co/branding-bootcamp/
We’ll take you through the key elements of creating a brand that connects: strategy, story-telling, and your digital presence.

- From Dana Walker, Director of ArtCenter at Night Public Programs-

Dear Public Programs faculty: ArtCenter College of Design is excited to announce the launch of a brand new program track in Game Design, beginning with a first entering class in Fall 2018. A natural extension of the incredible work Entertainment Design students learn to create as concept designers and animators, the Game Design Track expands our students’ capacities to design the stories that shape, engage, and thrill our culture.

As an Entertainment Design student in the Game Design track you will focus on acquiring the technical skills necessary for competency in game design; gaining fluency in the phases of the production process; learning how to navigate between artistic expression, programming and design languages; and developing your ability to identify, understand and solve a client’s design problems.

This program is part of ArtCenter’s full-time undergraduate program. Applications are currently being accepted and will continue to be accepted on an as-room-is-available basis until the program is full.

For more information, download the information sheet or call ArtCenter’s Admissions Office at 626.396.2373 or admissions@artcenter.edu

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

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

- 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.

- 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.

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.

- 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: To read the rest of this inspiring article click on, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/5930c85de4b062a6ac0ace76)

(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.)

Marysia

Dear Friends and Family,

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

THOSE ARE THE HEADLINES, NOW HERE ARE THE FULL STORIES. READ ON AND BE INSPIRED:



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!”
