  • July 2011 -- Butterflies
    by Jennifer Broschinsky

    Welcome to the July 2011 issue of EMG-Zine, where our theme is Butterflies.

    Ephemeral and delicate, butterflies are temporary creatures of metamorphosis. They feature prominently in folklore worldwide sometimes as harbingers of death, sometimes as messengers of change. In some cultures, they guide the dead to the afterlife. In others, they are creatures of beauty and magic. It is no mistake that faeries are often depicted with butterfly wings.

    In this month's issue, Missy walks us through a drawing of a butterfly dragon, Jenny Heidewald discusses the drawing of insects, and Constanza interviews artist Melissa Findley. We also have Butterfly-themed poetry, fiction and art. Enjoy!

    If you would like to submit work for our September issue, the theme is Mushrooms. 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.
