information contained LDesigning a website that meets the needs of artists is never an easy task. This is why we decided to come together and produce content that meets the ever growing needs of an ever growing community of artists. To do this, we had to seek individuals with different talents- so we could complement each other in our respective fields.

Scott Pattern- Illustrator

I believe that talent alone is not enough to be able to reach where I wish to be. As well as being the youngest member of this group, I am an illustrator and writer. I mainly focus on bringing ideas to life in a visual form. I also provide articles relevant to visual artists around the world.

Grant Neville- Graphic designer

According to Malcolm Gladwell, "Practice isn't the thing you do once you are good. It's the thing you do that makes you good." As a graphic designer and website editor, I am always trying my best to make this one of the best blog sites for artists. I am always aiming to especially make the site appealing, while also simple to use and navigate for our visitors.

Gary Seed- Cartoonist

I have always been fascinated with cartoons and this is why I believe that putting a smile in the faces of people as one of the most important things I always strive to achieve. I believe that cartoons give us an escape from reality, and this is why I pour my whole heart out when drawing them. I am also a contributing writer for this site.

Richard Athens- Animator

Aristotle once said, "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit." Art has always been my fascination ever since I can remember. Getting in touch with this group of dedicated and highly talented individuals in developing content for this site has been the best choice I have made. I am tasked with providing animations and also providing insight around the happenings in the animation industry.

Coming together has been the most amazing thing that has happened to us. As aspiring artists in different fields, we aim to complement and help each other along this tough but highly rewarding journey. Many artists face many issues, and it is one of the reasons many do not realize their full potential. However, together we understand that we can help each other and even offer a helping hand, while at the same time inspiring other upcoming or already established artists. We all believe that art is a reflection of the society, and thus we need to do all our best in what we do to play our part in our universe.
