[A Year INSPADES]
Updated: Dec 17, 2019
I almost can’t believe it has been an entire year since we launched INSPADES Magazine. We had an idea on the backburner, stumbled upon a unique partnership, put out a shout out for submissions and two weeks later birthed a whole new kind of magazine that immediately took on a life of its own.
We have discovered amazing artists and creative thinkers, delved deeper into their lives and put them on our pages for the world to see.
We have showcased novices and professional artists alike. All kinds of art, from all kinds of people, from all walks of life.
We have been inspired by their stories, moved by their challenges, uplifted by their successes.
They have shared with us their art, processes, inner workings and secrets.
They have gifted us with their talents, tips, vision and wisdom.
It has been quite a year.
In light of this, there are so many things that could be said, but at its core, only three things that truly matter:
Firstly, thank you, all of you, every single one of you! Thank you for the faith and support, for sharing yourselves with us, for working hard with us and for celebrating creativity with us! Thank you to our astounding team, our amazing partners, our incredible artists, our supportive family and friends, and to each day that we are able to exist wrapped tightly in the arms of our passion! Secondly, we are truly blessed by this opportunity and all it has created for everyone involved. It is this collective experience that makes it so deliciously joyous. We love our cultivated ecosystem of creativity that pushes us beyond our limits and links us all in a way that is both purposeful and thrilling! And lastly, for everything you’ve seen, for everything we’ve done, make no mistake... You ain’t seen nothing yet.
Thank you to all and here is to another year of enjoyment!
