It’s time to celebrate

Fall is the main season for being creative: A lot of art and craft shows invite us to discover, try and shop new painting and creating tools. Miserable weather and long evenings offer enough time for your favorite hobby. And now, there will even be another highlight: The Airbrush Artist Day. For the very first time, the „anniversary“ of the „Air Brush“ will be celebrated. The team of Airbrush Step by Step magazine appreciates this idea coming from South America and already started in August to motivate artists from all over the world to join this activity. In this issue, you can read about the background of this new celebration day in the interview with its co-founder Gerald Mendez.

If it comes to the artworks of this issue, we also tried to stay with the season: Canadian Derek Turcotte shows us how he painted the impressive Tiger huntress and also Italian Silvia Belviso portaits a dangerous hunter: The Great White Shark was created extremely photorealistic by using the techniques of Dru Blair.

The owl painted by Christian Erdmann seems to be also on the prowl, but was originally painted to be an presentation artwork for Schmincke’s new paint line „Aero Color Total Cover“. And for those of you who are finally just sick of cardboard and canvas illustration, this issue got Hugo Maciel’s sweat shirt painting and Andrea Panaro’s custom painted skull and pin-up tank.

This is wishing you a happy Airbrush Artist Day and a creative fall season.
