We are delighted to announce today, talented mobile photographer and artist, Peter Wilkin is joining us as a Co-Editor for our Column entitled ‘Draw the Line – Mobile Art as an Expression’ with Carol Wiebe. We have been impressed with Wilkin’s art for some time, so much so that he is a featured artist in our online gallery, see here.

Wilkin explains what this group is all about; This group is about mobile photos with the added touch of applied line. Lines can be a major or a minor element, placing drawn components into the image that help to illustrate or emphasise the meaning that you, as the artist, want to express

Line work can be applied by literally drawing lines on your image, adding patterns or making marks. Additionally, your lines could be stitched or glued onto your image using thread or string“.

We have a Facebook group dedicated to ‘Draw the Line’ and like our other Facebook groups, this will provide a platform for discussion on the techniques, aesthetics and goals that all mobile photographers bring to this art form. Please join this group.

We have also set up a special Flickr Group for ‘Draw the Line’ where we would like you to submit your images to for curation in showcases. In addition, we have a hashtag for Instagram for this group too, entitled #tawdrawtheline – please use that when taggin images on Instagram. Please join this group too.

TheAppWhisperer is growing at a phenomenal rate and trying to include as much unique content and variety from the mobile photography and art wold as our readers can possibly digest, you really don’t need to go anywhere else!

Please join us in welcoming Peter Wilkin to TheAppWhisperer family, Welcome Peter!

Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website— TheAppWhisperer.com— TheAppWhisperer platform has been a pivotal cyberspace for mobile artists of all abilities to learn about, to explore, to celebrate and to share mobile artworks. Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built. In her words, “We all have the potential to remove ourselves from the centre of any circle and to expand a sphere of compassion outward; to include everyone interested in mobile art, ensuring every artist is within reach”, she has said. Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus. She has presented lectures bolstering mobile artists and their art from as far away as the Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea to closer to her home in the UK at Focus on Imaging.

The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art. Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine.
