A trip to Illuxcon, the exhibition and sale of fantasy art in Altoona, Pennsylvania, is something not to be missed by anyone interested in fantasy art. The organisers of the show, Pat and Jeannie Wilshire, also have plans to extend the show and to take it into a museum setting in Allentown in 2013, with the idea that it will be easy to reach from New York. The standard of the work is high and it represents the very best in its field.
I was lucky enough to go with John Harris to help him with his presentation. We met many people who had previously bought his work from our website and it was such a pleasure to get to know them better. It was also a good chance to catch up with our New York representative, Alan Lynch, and his wife, Julie Simmons-Lynch, ex-editor of Heavy Metal Magazine.
