I haven't talked about Slashthree in a while. What is that actually? Slashthree started out as one of the many so-called 'art collectives', a team of artists who create artworks for themed exhibitions, to gain insightful feedback from each other, for extra exposure or simply just for fun. Over the years, however, this group has become more than that. Slashthree has presented at the annual design meeting OFFF, published two artbooks and has been awarded with several features. Meanwhile the 'exhibitions' turned into 'projects' and have become more serious efforts.
I joined the group in 2008 and it helped me grow a lot as an artist since then.
Last weekend Slashthree published another of these exhibitions, called "Discovery", focusing on the artists' self-awareness. Besides that they also come with a brandnew website. But I personally recommend you to watch the video interview with Isaac Burton, who is our featured artist this time.
If this appeals to you and you think you can make a worthy contribution to the group I invite you to try your luck and apply to become a member of the collective.

A few features from our members and 'Discovery':

Hey everyone.
My name is Erik and I am a Photoshop hobbyist from Germany. I have started practicing Digital Art around 2005 and since then I have come to love the genres of Photomanipulation, Space Art and Matte Painting.

In the past I have pursued a digital art career more seriously, joining up several renowned art collectives such as Depthcore, SlashThree and EvokeOne.
Besides, my work has been published in various books and magazines, among them the official Advanced Photoshop Magazine, The Book of Creation and even Ballistic: Exposé.

By now I have a real job and practice digital art solely as a hobby. So no use to ask me about commissions.

Thank you for your interest in my page!
