Newsletter - April 2006

Dear Art Lover,

Hello again! Can it really be almost one year since I've sent my last news? After spending 13 months traveling across the planet, a summer driving across the United States, and another four months living in Kyoto, Japan, Taro and I have finally landed back in the San Francisco Bay Area. We're settling into new jobs and projects, making art and continuing to share Global Fusion with our community through talks and slideshows at local venues.

I continue to search for galleries and other venues to exhibit the artwork and photographs made during our journey. If you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear about them. But, if you want to see some of the work now, check out the Current Gallery at my website.

Lectures and Slideshows
Join Taro and I as we deconstruct Global Fusion. Hear about our inspirations, the gear we packed, the writing and artwork we published, and then sit back and let us take you on a virtual trip across our planet as we share some of our favorite photographs.

DG Magazine has published the inside story of the Global Fusion project. Loueze Harper interviews Taro and I about the project, the challenges, the highlights, and the joys of such an adventure. DG Magazine can be found in better bookstores everywhere. For a peek at the article, download the PDF here (it's takes a moment to load all 12 pages, but we think it's worth it.)

Photoshop Masking & Compositing
This book was published while we were on the road, however, the material is still important and current. Photoshop artist and educator Katrin Eismann takes readers through numerous step-by-step examples, highlighting the tools and techniques used for masking and combining images. Featuring work by leading artists and photographers (including yours truely), this book focuses on the techniques used to create compelling compositions, including making fast and accurate selections, mastering Photoshop's masking tools, and implementing the concept and photography from start to finish.

Friends in the Arts:
Taro Tsuzuki continues to serve as a cultural bridge with his insightful writings about world events. This month, GQ JAPAN publishes his first article in the mainstream Japanese media. Taro writes in his native language about important issues taking place in the world that tend to go unnoticed by the Japanese media. Join me in congratulating Taro on this hard earned achievement.
