Hello world, here we are!
As a regular reader, you might have noticed the new price label on the cover and also that „NEW“ teaser. What’s new about it? Well, Airbrush Step by Step magazine in English language has been on the market for more than 10 years now. But it was actually hard to find as it was only available from our web store and at a handful of airbrush supply stores, mainly in Europe. Finally, from the beginning of 2019, we have the chance to sell through book stores in some countries all around the world. So hopefully, there might also be some new readers, dicovering this issue for the first time, finding it at a Barnes & Noble store in the US or at any book store or press agent in Canada, Britain, Brazil, Spain, Portugal, Australia or Taiwan. Welcome to Airbrush Step by Step magazine! We hope you’ll enjoy!
Now, what about this issue? Cover artist Marcus Eisenhuth from Germany is introducing you to his „macro photorealism“. You’ll see even more photorealism with Elad Yehezkel’s „Amit“. The artist from Israel renders his artwork layer by layer. Young artist Clarisse Pico shares with you her dream of freedom which she expresses with the motive of a mustang and a jet plane. US artist Cozmo Colon painted a portrait of XXXTentacion on a shirt, to commemorate the musician who was shot in 2018.
Find out about the custom guitars of Croatian artist Dalibor Pejicic who specializes in texture and patina effects. And what would you do if there weren’t any suitable airbrush supplies available in your country? That’s the daily challenge of Larry Espino from Peru. But, however, you’ll be amazed by the automotive painting that he’s creating.
We are also taking one look back at SEMA 2018 and one ahead to the Wonderworld of airbrush event in the Netherlands. And last, but not least, we got lots of interesting news from the big ones in the industry: Iwata, Harder & Steenbeck, Sparmax and Createx.
Have fun and best wishes from Germany!
