Art, mystique and musings in a faery realm...

Here we are... Our grand debut into the great wild web world...

I decided to start this blog because there are so many things in this world that I want to do or try. So many interests, so much to read, to learn, to do and to see... So, I've decided to record some of my adventures, thoughts, findings, inspirations and creations here to share. I hope that anyone that happens upon here will be able to take something useful away.

Firstly I have to say that much of the drive behind my inspiration to make this blog and behind my creations as of late has spawned from my adventures last year to FaerieCon (2008) in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, and this year to FaerieWorlds (2009) in Eugene Oregon. I will share pictures from these events, the costumes that myself and others have made, the art, the artists and the people. The organizers for these events, are absolutely amazing and are following a wonderful dream that I'm happy to have been a small part of. I've been lucky enough to have undergone these adventures with my best friend Natalie by my side.

Some art related notes: Natalie and I went to high school together, and graduated from the University of Calgary's Fine Arts program together. We both have a Bachelors Degree in Art specializing in Drawing and now share an Art Studio at Art Central in the heart of Downtown Calgary. Our studio is named the Flemish Monkey which we may start a blog for in the near future where we'll share some of our current masterpieces as well as upcoming events. Our studio is always open on First Thursdays at Art Central. These events are always something to look forward to - just remember, the First Thursday of every month you can come and experience a plethora of art and inspiration downtown! I'll try to keep you updated on that.

In addition to being an artist, I work at a Library. The Library is full of very talented individuals, there are so many people involved in art, music, drama and performance arts - it's astounding! It's also wonderful source of information and inspiration! There's always a story to escape into that fuels the imagination. Much of the art that Natalie and I have done has had a literary base to it, you can see some examples at our deviantart site currently - soon we will have our own official website once it has been created by our very talented friend at Roz E Creations.

So until the next post... My kindest regards (Trobei's as well!),
