Hi Everyone,

Some of you may remember Jason Foster aka Plutonicfluf

Jason passed away 5 years ago and the world lost a true artist. Jason was a smart, funny person who was a very creative photographer and expressed that creativity here on DA. Through the Perspectate club,  Jason encourage and challenged other photographers to think outside of the visual “box” and work to see things anew in different ways. I was one of the people he challenged and it made me a better photographer for it.

As it has been 5 years since Jason’s passing, his Uncle Alex put this video together and his parents posted it on Vimeo.  They also posted links to his music and the Jason Foster Youth Memorial Fund, which helps teens take the Youth Empowerment Seminar (YES!) – read more

If you remember Jason or if you are just reading about him now for the first time, I would encourage you to watch the video. It features many styles of his art and his music. It is a fitting memorial to both him and his talent. Maybe it will even inspire you.

In the words of Neil Gaiman, “Do what only you do best. Make good art.”

raiawoman has started a donation pool!
1,050 / 4,796
Fund Raising for Perspectate Club :iconperspectate:

As you know, our paid membership ran out and I can't afford to upgrade to a super group right now. Without the paid membership or "Super Groups" as DA is calling it these days, the club can not use a lot of features such as polls, breaking the galleries down into subsections, using skins, using customization and promotional tools. I know some of you are thinking "big deal we don't need all that" but let me tell you, running contests and getting feedback on ideas without polls is not easy.

If anyone wants to donate points we need 4,796. I wouldn't ask any one person for this but if several people want to chip in, it makes it more affordable. As of right now, I do not see a "give" button on the club page so you will need to donate the points to this widget for the club. I will then purchase the Super Group upgrade.
All who help out get a special feature. Thank you all, hugs! :D

You must be logged in to donate.
