I’m Cliff Stieglitz, the founder and publisher of Airbrush Action magazine. I want to be closer to my readership and communicate with you. Barring unnecessary profanity, obscenity and vulgarity, hate speech, personal attacks, advertising and spam, copyright/plagiarism, and other “evil” content, I’d love to hear your thoughts on Airbrush Action magazine; what articles/artists you’d like to see, opinion on anything Airbrush Action or airbrushing, how Airbrush Action can improve, etc, etc. Although we may be the world’s leading airbrush publication, I know there is always room for development, and I want to hear your thoughts. In this new forum everyone has diplomatic immunity and I hereby swear that I’ll be as thick-skinned as a pachyderm. It’s open season on Stieglitz, and he’s ready!
Also, most of the artists featured in Airbrush Action were found through networking or submissions. So, I invite—no, urge—you to submit your work or suggest the names of others who you believe warrant coverage in Airbrush Action. We, as with any news provider (print or digital), constantly seek new stories on artists, techniques, industry news, new products, events, and so on. Let’s get to know each other, and help to grow the best airbrush publication in the world.
GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS
A couple of years ago I applied online to Guinness World Records to claim the longest running airbrush magazine in history (Airbrush Action, of course). If nothing else, I thought it would be a great cover cutline on an anniversary issue. The short of it is, they replied with—I’m paraphrasing—‘As much as we believe your claim, we’re not interested.’ It was worth a chuckle. Now that Airbrush Action is 25 I’ll give it another shot.
TATTOO AND AIRBRUSH ARTISTS
I’ve noticed a great synergy among airbrush and tattoo artists, and we’d like to do a feature article on the subject. If you’re a tattoo artist that is a newby or veteran airbrusher, and vice versa, please submit sample pics depicting both art forms to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please e-mail requests for instructions on uploading to our ftp site with hi-res images.
