  • February 2009 -- Humor
    by Jennifer Broschinsky

    Welcome to the February, 2009 issue of EMG-Zine! This month we celebrate Humor.

    Science fiction and fantasy sometimes seem too serious for their own good. It's good for us to take the occasional look at the lighter side of speculative fiction and fantasy. Because even in the worlds of high fantasy, sometimes, our paladins trip over their feet, our elves have bad hair days, and our dragons want to drink tea instead of properly fighting their knights like they're supposed to.

    In this issue, Ursula Vernon tackles the issue of art avoidance, while Nicole Cadet gives us reasons why we shouldn't feel guilty when we DON'T get to our art. Missy Acker walks through an ink-and-watercolor cross-hatching piece. We also have a parcel of humorous fiction, art and comics. Enjoy!

    If you would like to submit work for our April issue, the theme is Shells. Please 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.
