Faerie Con 2007 is coming to Philadelphia this weekend. Since I am all wrapped up in a bunch of things this weekend, I will not be able to get down there. That, or I am a chicken when it comes to sharing the idea that I like Faeries. Either way, I won't be able to get there, but there will be plenty of very talented artists. Here are 13 that will be there.
1. Brian and Wendy Froud. They are apparently the guests of honor.
2.Holly Black. She is not actually an artist, but an author, best known for the Spiderwick Chronicles, which apparently is being turned into a movie.
3.Barbara Moore is an author and certified Tarot Card Reader, including the beautifully drawn book Mystic Faerie Tarot. I think one of the reasons Tarot Cards intrigue me is because they are just gorgeous.
4.Jessica Beckett-Griffith is a Faerie artist who allows her drawings to show her influences in the Mayan, Hindu and Greek traditions.
5.Jacqueline Collen Tarroly
6.J.Cosentino of a Time of the Faeries. His artwork is actually pictures, not drawings and it is knock your socks off beautiful.
7.Kinuko Craft-An artist that uses her images to tell a story as opposed to just being visually stunning.
8.Jessica Galbreath, painter of myth, magik and enchantment.
9.Ted Naismith, who is best known for his illustrations of some J.R. Tolkien books.
10.Linda Ravenscroft is the artist/illustrator of the Mystic Faerie Tarot books written by Barbara Moore (who I mentioned earlier).
11.Helen Nelson Reed-an artist that works in Watercolors, which just has to be magnificent to see in person.
12.Josephine Wall, who seems to go into to things I love, faeries and water.
13.Jen Delyth, a celtic illustrator who focuses alot of her works on the magik of nature.
So there you go, now you know what we both will be missing, which now that I researched it more, kinda really sucks.
