  • April 2008 -- Unicorns
    by Jennifer Broschinsky

    Welcome to the April issue of EMG-Zine, where we celebrate that ultimate fantasy symbol of beauty and purity, the Unicorn.

    Popular among fantasy artists (and dreaming little girls) all over the world, the Unicorn is the epitome of innocence. Able to cure poisons, styled at times as a foe of the dragon, the Unicorn could only be tamed by a pure maiden. Who among us wouldn't find ourselves feeling a little like Molly Grue*, if we ever faced our own unicorn?

    This month, Ursula runs through the basics of preparing to go to a convention, Giovanna tells us about the life and times of Hieronymus Bosch, Janet gives us helpful tips on recycling wire for art, Marina enlightens us about the mythology behind the Unicorn, Melissa gives us a watercolor tutorial to show us how relativity works in color, and Ellen gives us the low-down on licensing. We also have unicorn-themed poetry, fiction and comics!

    If you would like to submit work for our June issue, the theme is Egypt. Be sure to check the guidelines before you submit.

    *I can't imagine anyone reading EMG-Zine would not get this reference, but if you don't... Hie thee to the local bookstore or library and find yourself a copy of Peter S. Beagle's The Last Unicorn Right Now! You won't regret it.

    Jennifer Broschinsky has, since her youth, filled her sketchbooks with things feathered and furred, winged and scaled. She is currently working on a sequential art story called Songseeker, and is working on raising three sons.
