Nowadays all of we use new technologies; social networks put us in contact to one and all, great artisans have their websites where they sell to everyone all over the world, not to mention that most people who can craft something, try to share theis work through the network and even sell in pages as ETSY. Today we can buy in stores anywhere in the world and there are many museums dedicated to the miniatures.
¿Os imagináis hace 18 años intentar poner en pie una revista como esta?. ¡Qué trabajo tan tremendo buscar tanta información sobre artesanos y aficionados no sólo de España, si no del mundo entero! ¡Y sin apenas medios tecnológicos! Por otra parte, me parece increíble que la revista tuviera éxito al principio, ya que esta afición por entonces era mucho más minoritaria que ahora (!que ya es decir¡)
Can you imagine 18 years ago trying to start up a magazine like this ?.What a tremendous job search a bunch of information about artisans and enthusiasts not only from Spain, all over the world! And almost no technological means! Moreover, it seems incredible that the magazine was successful at first, due to this hobby was then much more minority thyan now (That is! )
I wanted to congratulate Madelva Fernandez de Rojas, and her huge team, these 200 numbers full of inspiration, and I'd like to thank the enormous effort over the years to highlight and publicize this hobby, and many many artisans and small fans. I sincerely hope that your road will be barely beginning and we could enjoy your pages for many years.
Yo por mi parte, colaboro siempre que puedo, desde septiembre de 2013, y ya he publicado mis trabajos en 13 números.
Dentro de mis propósitos de año nuevo está intentar seguir compartiendo con vosotros todo lo que aprendo, tanto a través del blog como de la revista. Pues si una cosa ha cambiado en estos años gracias a la contribución de revistas como ésta y a las nuevas tecnologías , ha sido que esta afición se ha popularizado mucho, y ya no tiene por qué ser prohibitiva para nuestros bolsillos.
On my behalf, I collaborate whenever I can, since September 2013, and I've already posted my work in X numbers.
One of my new year's resolutions is to try to continue sharing with you everything I learn, both through the blog and the magazine. Because if something has changed over the years thanks to magazines like this and new technologies, it is that this hobby has become very popular, and no longer has to be prohibitive for our pockets.
Another purpose for the this year 2015, is to try to go to Tom Bishop International in Madrid celebrated in November, as artisan. I have much time for it, so I hope so.
Also, I would like to thank you the support you have shown me since I started to share my work on the blog, I only regret not to compensate you as it should, because I have little time to surf the Internet and comment your work. I promise to try to rectify.
