Working with artists

It's great what can be accomplished when artists get together to work. I should take that back. It's wonderful what can be achieved when people cooperate to work. People together with a purpose undoubtedly means that wonderful things are about to happen. Somebody's work value goes beyond monetary measurements. It is the pleasure of just giving a little bit of ourselves in pursue of someone's dream. In this issue we want to highlight the work of three artists who have collaborated with us:

Ryan Dirksen at Where Wood Meets Steel uses a wide variety of materials from reclaimed and recycled wood and steel to unique slabs to produce custom furniture. Ryan is the artist who made the cover for the Antique Photography Studio book.

Ray Tomasso, printer, typographer, graphic designer, sculptor, is the artist, master paper-maker who in his newest exhibition "Forgotten Latitudes" shows, in monumental size, the magnitude of his 40 plus years of research in paper making. His paper cast abstract sculptures, saturated with no muted colors are truly impressive.
I had the privilege of working at Ray's Inter-Ocean Curiosity Studio making the paper used to create the Antique Photography Studio book.

Kiko Yamada is an artist who loves drawing, painting, and never stops creating. She is a classically trained artist and began drawing caricatures in 2007. She is passionate about caricature art and feels blessed being able to make a living doing what she loves. I like her energy and love her work.
