  • June 2008 -- Egypt
    by Jennifer Broschinsky

    Come with us and explore the mysteries of Egypt in this month's issue of EMG-Zine!

    Windswept and sand-scoured ruins are all that remain of a vast and rich civilization. The mystery of how they built what they did, and how it was engulfed again by the desert, is one of many things that entrance us about ancient Egypt, the land of gods and pharaohs. What was mysterious to Victorian adventurers continues to draw us in, to haunt us with legends of curses and mummies, and with its exotic artwork and script.

    In this issue, Melissa Acker walks us through the first stages of a painting of a sphinx, Marina examines the history of the Tarot, Giovanna investigates the life and art of Sidney Sime, Ursula tackles guilt and art, and Janet celebrates her 30th column of Healthy Green Artists! We have a feature from Ellen on supply and demand in art, and the first in a series on cyberfunded creativity from Elizabeth Barrette. We also have Egypt-themed art, fiction and comics! Enjoy!

    If you would like to submit work for our August issue, the theme is “Muses”. Be sure to read the guidelines before submitting.

    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.
