Klaus Schmidt gives the first ASVONF testimonial

Dear Shaded Viewers,

My friend Robb is always telling me that I should be collecting testimonials from all the people that find work via my site , get clients, find resources, etc. etc. Of course I never do but the other night when I had dinner with Hector Castro and Klaus Schmidt at YEN , Klaus became my first testimonial poster boy:

Wanted to thank you again for posting my work on Shaded View.


Having it up there and available to google helped me a good deal with
responses. I have had emails from people talking about my work. I had
one American designer in particular order a substantial amount of
prints after seeing my work on your site.

So keep doing what you do. Keep that platform for the young talents
high and shining.

The story kept me smiling all night. If you visit iqons.com you can find more of Klaus’s work. Klaus actually found Ninette on IQONS.com as did Charles Anastase and both of them are going to do something for her project. She is smiling too.
