We look at great images all the time, but the thoughts behind them, the "why?" directly from the artist, is rarely shared. There are ten images in the series so far, each one from a different artist. With each new "Why?" there's another story as unique as the images and the artists themselves.
Matthew Jordan Smith kicks off this week's series with an image that's as much about visualization as it is a demonstration of the creative roots in his mind's eye. If you know Matthew, or have heard him speak, you'd expect no less.
Just click on the image to visit his website and read more about Matthew, but as always, I enjoy putting my own spin on his bio. We've spent a lot of years hanging out together and Matthew is all about inspiration. Even something as simple as grabbing lunch together can be the stimulus for a series of in-depth new ideas and energy. Then again, what would you expect from somebody who always signs his emails, "Alway Dream Big!"
An artist, educator, writer and loyal friend he's supported by some of the industry's most prestigious manufacturers. He's an X-Rite Coloratti Pro and one click on the logo below and you can find out even more about him and the rest of the Coloratti team.
As with all the artists featured to date, a big thanks for their support and especially taking the time for a quick sound byte to share their special images and giving a blog post a second dimension.
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
