This month we’re featuring some of Asia’s new manga superstars, and who better to start things of than cover artist Stanley Lau with his much loved character Pepper. We talk to Stanley about the Pepper Project and the rise of his Imaginary Friends Studio, then we turn our attention to Chester Ocampo and the art of creating a manga-inspired special effects-attired character. In two of our workshops we focus on colour and light - Trevor Claxton shows us how to take images from black and white to colour with minimum fuss, and Ioan Dumitrescu takes us through the lighting of a night-time sci-fi scene. We then take the plunge with Lucasfilm’s Jerome Moo as he creates an aquatic scene using special water effects. <a href="http://ad.doubleclick.net/jump/fut.gb.imaginefx/ros;tile=2;sz=300x250;ord=123456789?" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://ad.doubleclick.net/ad/fut.gb.imaginefx/ros;tile=2;sz=300x250;ord=123456789?"
Designing for the Greeting Card Industry The UK population spends £1.5 billion a year on greeting cards - more than it spends on tea and coffee - yet finding a route into this fiercely competitive industry is not always easy. There are two main options, either to become a greeting card publisher yourself or to supply existing greeting card publishers with your artwork and be paid a fee for doing so. The idea of setting up your own greeting card publishing company may sound exciting, but this decision should not be taken lightly.

If you go down below you’ll see that their Alexa ranking is also increasing steadily. Hope it would continue as I upload more photos to the agency.

Candidates submitting digital support material that does not correspond to the following guidelines may result in their application being considered incomplete, resulting in its withdrawal from the competition. Therefore, test your material before submitting to ensure that it has been formatted correctly. It is your responsibility to ensure that all material reaches the Department of Fine Arts intact and in a readable format.
My advice is to contact someone a little further down the food chain then the head of the art department. Look at magazine mastheads and contact people with titles like "deputy" or "assistant" photography editor. They are more likely to have the time to actually look at your work.
