News for December
Griffin In Flight
Wings of Wonder
December 2008 -- Wingsby Jennifer Broschinsky
Welcome to the December issue of EMG-Zine! We end the year with Wings.
Man has always held the power of flight in awe. It is little wonder, then, that mythology is awash with people, beings, and beasts sporting wings of every kind. Wings are the symbol of messengers and protectors; wings adorn friend and foe alike. They can be a symbol of speed, and of power. And who has never dreamed of having his own wings, and his own bit of the sky?
In this issue we say goodbye to long-time columnist, Marina Bonomi! (We will miss you!) In her last column, she talks about worldwide mythology surrounding the swan. Giovanna Adams writes about the life and works of early science fiction artist Chesley Bonstel, Missy Acker walks us through a painting of a griffin (with a focus on the wings, of course), and Ellen gives us the fine details of "Fair Use". We also have wing-themed art, poetry and comics! Enjoy!
