As always, a big thank
you to all the folks who made this issue possible. I couldn't do this
without all the writers and artists who have entrusted their work to
me, and the editors who keep our ps and qs in order!
Janet talks about plastic in Healthy Green Artists, Ursula rants about the cliches of our theme in Wombat Droppings, Annie gets us set up to start painting in Behind the Art, Amy helps us pick costuming fabric (without straining our wallets) in Cosplay 101, Marina continues her saga about sun mythology in Myths and Symbols, and I talk about EMG updates in EMG News.
Tax time is coming up for you US folks! Have you put them off until
the last minute, too? Christy Nicholas gives us a feast of tips and
hints and answers all your common questions in Books and Taxes for Artists. Amy Edwards gives us a fantastic tutorial about Drawing Celtic Knots and Liiga goes into art marketing secrets in Online Marketing, Part Three. Have you considered submitting to EMG-Zine? I give you all the dirt on writing articles in How to Write an Article and our editor, Megan, gives you tips for getting the grammar
write right in Writer's Boot Camp, Part One: Punctuation Patrol.
Fiction and Art
We have a glorious gallery of Celtic Fey artwork, with three tasty wallpapers for download. Chella Reaves warns us about Lorenzo's Law in illustrated fiction. Boot camp exercises for art and writing are available at the EMG Forum every week. Our main header image this month is from Celtic Dreams by Deborah Grieves and the background and corner images are from Dawn Obrecht's piece, Filigree and Knotwork.
Two movies were reviewed this month - Georgette tells us about the animated feature Valiant and Bertha has a look at Seven Swords.
Enjoy and be well,
