Nathan thanks for giving me the opportunity to design the Vertical Artisans E-Mag cover. I had a blast doing it and can’t wait to design Volume 2, along with helping others set up their showcase centerfolds. This is a great opportunity for everyone involved in this industry to “Showcase” their work. You have a great plan and I am excited about being a part of it. I’m sure once the first magazine drops everyone will see the solid approach you are making to better the craft along with its Artisans.Climb on board guys and give a little to gain a lot!
I was at my local pub and had the same thoughts. So what I did tonight was had 2 less and will contribute $14.00 for 2 members that have not contributed. I can't really afford a subscription to the VA site but I will learn through persiverence!!! Nathan G please give my $14.00 to someone who has not donated or 2 members of the VAF and give them recognition as well. This is about all of us as "artists" to make a movement. SO, Lets move and move forward together as a whole.
Thank you and goodnight,

Now Nathan, my favorite pub on Mondays and Wednesdays has Guinness pints for $3.50, which is 2 for $7. So yes, I literally p!ss away $7 quite frequently, and cannot think of a better way to dispose of my money in $7 increments. That said, I get your point, and will contribute accordingly (here, that is). Thanks for putting things into perspective for me!
Nathan Brownell said:We all have p!ssed away more than $7.00. I think that is a small price to pay for possibly 1 job from this advertisement. Do I truly believe I will get 1 job? Questionable. As I said $7.00? I will continue to contribute as I can.
Thank You Nathan .... I will do that. Maybe you should pick 2 yourself
The magazine cover looks sweet! I didn't get a chance to be part of, or listen to the webinar, but I believe this is an excellent opportunity to get some recognition, not only for myself, but for the entire trade. I believe, the more people realize what can be done with concrete, the more jobs we will all get, and this seems like an awesome way to get the word out to people who may have went to Bob Vila's site looking for something completely different, and now have decided they have to have some vertical work done. I just finished my first actual paid job, (a small waterfeature) I wasn't quite sure what I thought of the finished product until I filled it with water, turned it on, and had about ten people stop by the homeowners house to take a look. They were amazed! Many of them were convinced that they knew the spot where we picked up the rocks up in the hills, and didn't believe me when I told them it was hand carved....My point being, I now have about ten more people who looked at my work, realized what could be done with carved concrete, and now want something built at their house. I believe the Bob Vila site will bring more people to this realization.
That's great and a job well done....you enthusiasm is contagious! I agree with you!
