• Issue 03 Foreword

    It’s easy to romanticize what it means to be an artist.  The mind’s eye produces a lone, backlit figure brooding in an industrial warehouse, lost in a euphoric trance of creative clarity, with only his genius, paints and palette to keep him company.  But nothing creative is ever that simple– or glamorous.
