Fantasy Faire 2010 : Final Weekend


This is the final weekend at the Fantasy Faire, and I’ve had such a fantastic time blogging some of the pieces for you. I have also met some really terrific creators, and have enjoyed working with them. One of the wonderful things about a fair of any kind is making a discovery of something completely new to you. It has been my great pleasure to discover the fantasy art of real life artist J. Matthew Root, and to meet his SL counterpart, artist and creator, Marcus Inkpen. I ran across Marcus in his booth during the blogger preview, where he patiently talked to me even though he was trying to finish up things for the launch of the faire — thank you for your kindness, Markus πŸ™‚

Markus is the artist of the painting in the picture, titled Discovery. I couldn’t resist the redhead πŸ™‚ But — I don’t think there was a single painting of Markus’ that I didn’t love and put on my shopping list. Incidentally — you can get RL prints of many/most of these paintings from the website linked below. I know a lot of people enjoy having a such a piece in both their real and virtual lives πŸ™‚

Markus is ALSO the creator of those wonderful “Alien Buds” that I’ve used for landscaping in the photo. These are fantastic pieces for any fantasy landscape — the colors are rich, and the pattern is just perfect. These will definitely find a permanent place in my home. These pieces were done for Deeper Muse, and you can purchase them individually or in a five-pack with a variety of color combinations. I might mention that Markus and his partner were responsible for the build on the SciFi sector, and it is truly beautifully done — definitely worth a visit.

** it came to my attention today that the Alien Buds are a little hard to find, and I can see it is a tad confusing. The store you are looking for is right by the landing point for the SciFi Sector. The store has a sign for Deeper Muse, but it isn’t terribly obvious. The most obvious signage right above the door reads “Pandora Valley”. If you have any trouble finding it, let me know and I’ll give you a pinpoint landmark πŸ™‚

    What a lovely post. I was just getting ready to TP over to “the spot” you photographed when on closer reading (I bet I’m not the only one that skims) I figured out that this was YOUR build / collage. Love the art and those alien buds. And you, my dear, look great!

    So I’ll just have to find a local forest spot for my next post 😦 – LOL.

  2. awww … sorry to be confusing. And you know I’d give you the landmark anytime πŸ™‚ But, yes — it is just a set, and you’ve seen the whole thing now. I’m such a collector of “stuff” … I decided to start experimenting with building some sets for my photos. Thanks for your kind words πŸ™‚
