Autumn Brilliance magazine's
"We Wish You a Scary Christmas"
I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have been able to feature the talents of so many notable Halloween and holiday artists in this issue (as well as the premiere issue, which was published September, 2020). Each and every one of these amazing artists have been wonderful, as I got to know them personally and learned of their unique intricate process of creating their works of art.
My deepest love and thanks go to the artists who participated in this magazine:
Nicole Johnson - Audrey Swarz - Susie Krichbaum - Mandy Palumbo - Karen Steinkraus - Jacqueline Patrick - David Anderson - Ethan Black - Lauryn MacGregor - Helen Terlalis Dorn - and to both John Davis and Kristen Stafford for the fabulous, fun and informative articles submitted that helped to further flesh out this publication.
It was most certainly a labor of love, without a doubt!
I'll freely admit that having completed this latest venture, I'm TIRED! After having worked on two big issues in a row (which I put together myself, 100%! No other graphic artists or office assistants here, folks, just me in my little home studio), I am definitely pooped.
But even so, hard as it is to not want to instantly jump into another publication, I'm forcing myself to relax - just a bit - and take the rest of the year off (ok, well, it's only about another week till year's end) before I dive headfirst into the next. Oh, to be sure, there are plenty of things scheduled to come to fruition in 2021, but for now, it's the chill pill for me. I'm going to set about clearing and cleaning up my office, it needs it!
Don't know if I'll post again until the beginning of the coming year, so until then, my love to all. Be well, be happy, be safe, and most importantly, please be kind to others. Here's to making 2021 a thousand times better than this one was!
