We are all unsung in some way, just as we are lauded in others. And we will likely never be able to properly thank those who have been instrumental in guiding us, supporting us, and helping us realize our true potential. But remember, that’s not why they helped us in the first place, and the best way to acknowledge that assistance is to internalize that lesson of support and realize that you have tools that others need, whether it’s time, experience and expertise, advice, money, space, or perhaps just the acknowledgement of someone’s struggle along their own creative path. We work in studios, not in vacuums. —Sherman Hall, Editor
