A couple of months ago we had the pleasure of interviewing artist and art teacher Russell Powell for upcoming issue of Content Magazine. Russell paints on his hand then stamps it onto a piece of paper. That might not sound very impressive until you see his beautifully detailed black and white paintings that are painted on an approximately 4”x4” surface that isn’t flat.
Ken Davis’ studio is covered with skateboard decks, shelves of records, and reference books as an ode to the tangible. He prefers to have these items as a reminder to slow down. None of his research is done online, preferring to hunt down a rare book instead of staring at a scan. But the extra effort shows in his work. His meticulous eye and dedication to doing things the right way at every stage of production are sure signs that clients are getting a quality product.

At first glance, Kori Thompson looks like someone you’d hang out with on a Friday night at a bar or local show. His large stature and booming voice make you pay attention when he steps into a room. But his physical presence isn’t the only thing that will catch your eye: Thompson’s paintings will, too. Thompson has been drawing for most of his life, but he is a relatively new artist on the local art scene.

Josh Marcotte creator of Lost San Jose, a popular photojournalistic blog which documents his wandering spirit and explores his profound connection with the city his family has called home for four generations. Part urban explorer, part night photographer, as well as writer and historian, he seamlessly blends his poetic view into his art form, creating profound images that cause even a local to pause and think: “Where is this?”
We are thrilled to share that we have acquired the popular local interview blog San Jose Creatives. We are proud to carry on their mission of interviewing the diverse and abundant creative community of Santa Clara County.
Tessie BarreraScharaga is an artist who makes connections: connections between language and culture, art and communities, the past and the present, and, most importantly, between people.

Her work tables hold glass plates, ink, clay, brushes, and an assortment of paper, while books line the shelves and carefully placed pieces hang from the walls.
