My name is Sloan and I am the graphic designer for Vision Magazine (www.visionmagazine.com) based out of San Diego, CA. We are a holistic & green consciousness monthly free publication. We print 90,000 copies of each 10"x10", 48 page issue and distribute from the Mexico border up to San Francisco/Bay Area, No. Arizona and Hawaii.
If we use your work for one of our issues we would like to feature you one on the cover (full color) and also give you page 45 which is a non-ad, full color spread for more of your work, contact info, and bio. We would also feature you online as our "visionary artist".
You would be exposed to a huge holistic market that you might not be exposed to at the moment, plus be featured along the west coast in 90,000 copies to 250,000+ readers.
Please let us know asap if you are interested as we are approaching deadline. If we don't make it for this issue, we would love to have you for the future. The art we like for our cover is called: speedpainting_46_by_rhads-d3j1v9c
p.s. We are a free publication that is funded solely on advertisement and there is no pay for this artist feature. You retain all rights to your work and we never use them or share them in any other way but in Vision Magazine.
thank you very much!

I'm normally not a fan of speedpaintings, but this one is very cool. "kraken" looks so huge with being above the clouds and filling the sea...also very cool you can see underwater. I would love it if this was a movie scene. That would be immense.
Your use of color in this is horrendously appealing. There's a sort of synergy between the bold colors, the bold strokes, and the bold contrasting between each of the three 'scenes' for each color layer. It's almost as each layer is a self-contained illustration in its own right. I'm not sure than the ship holds up as well as the rest of the image - it doesn't seem to be laid down as confidently, but the rest is more than appealing. Part of me even feels that it might be more interesting without the ship at all.
Thanks for posting, was a great piece of visual candy to pop up in my inbox!
"RELEASE THE KRAKEN!" (Allthough, if they had said it right, it would be "release the krake", as "Kraken" is the name of a single large monster XD) Anywho! You've done an awesome job! I absolutely LOVE this!
