News for May
The Fantasy Artwork of Ida Rentoul Outhwaite
Internet (Do Not) Panic
Art Show Season Again!
May 2008 -- Trainsby Jennifer Broschinsky
Welcome to the May issue of EMG-Zine, and be prepared to travel with us with this month's offerings, featuring Trains!
Whether the wonder is in the destination or the magic is in the journey, trains hearken to an older age, where steam powered the journey, and the destination was the unknown -- the wilderness, the end of the line. When the east and west lines met and the coasts were joined together by rail, it was in a way an end of an era. There is still something grand about standing at the terminal, waiting for the train to pull in to take us to realms unknown.
In this issue, Melissa Acker demonstrates how to make paint reference cards, Marina delves into the history of the 'steampunk' genre, Giovanna talks about the life and fairy art of Ida Rentoul Outhwaite, Janet offers tips on green con prep, and Ursula explains how to tell when (and when NOT) to panic about Internet-borne news. We have features on LARP (what it is, and how it works), licensing for visual artists, and from Ellen, an in-depth, level-headed look at the legislation behind Orphan Works. There is also train-themed fiction, poetry, and comics! Enjoy!
If you would like to submit work for our July issue, the theme is 'The Senses'. Be sure to check the guidelines before you submit.
