Producing over 3,300 individual books his illustrations adorned the pages of loved children’s books such as ‘Peter Pan’ and ‘Alice in Wonderland’.

HOLLYWOOD, California, May 18, 2017 – A beloved classic from the 80s marks its return as Netflix, the world’s leading internet entertainment network, will bring The Jim Henson Company’s The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance exclusively to members around the world. The 10-episode fantasy adventure series is a prequel to the groundbreaking 1982 fan favorite The Dark Crystal, and takes place many years before the events of the film. The series will be shot in the U.K., and will star an ensemble of fantastical, state-of-the-art creatures created by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop™ and Brian Froud, the original feature’s conceptual designer.

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance returns to the world of Thra with an all new adventure. When three Gelfling discover the horrifying secret behind the Skeksis’ power, they set out on an epic journey to ignite the fires of rebellion and save their world.

Feature film director Louis Leterrier (Now You See MeThe Incredible Hulk) will executive produce the series and direct. The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance will be a Netflix original series produced by The Jim Henson Company and executive produced by Letterier, Lisa Henson and Halle Stanford. Longtime Henson collaborator Rita Peruggi will serve as producer and Henson’s Blanca Lista will serve as a co-executive producer. Leading the writing are co-executive producers Jeffrey Addiss and Will Matthews (Life in a Year), and Javier Grillo-Marxuach (LostThe 100).

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance will combine the art of puppetry perfected by The Jim Henson Company, with Louis’ vision, powerful storytelling and a mix of cutting-edge digital imagery and visual effects,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content at Netflix. “I can’t wait for families around the world to see how we bring these unique characters to life.”

“Louis Leterrier is passionate about the world of The Dark Crystal and has an incredible creative vision for the series. He brings this passion to every facet of the production as he leads the talented team of artists and writers that are bringing this entire universe to life,” said Lisa Henson, CEO of The Jim Henson Company. “Netflix has a deep respect for my father’s original work and the many people it inspired. They are the perfect partners to create this next epic chapter in The Dark Crystal story for new fans and the loyal fans who have waited so long for more adventures from this world.”

Renowned artist/author duo Brian and Wendy Froud present, for the first time, the backstory of Cottington Hall and its intriguing inhabitants: the Cottington family and the faeries living among them. The rise and fall of this eccentric British family gives us humorous, and sometimes tragic, glimpses into how the Cottingtons became inexorably entwined with the faeries during the late 19th and 20th centuries. When a descendant, Maddi, visits the Cottingtons’s dilapidated hall, she finds herself caught up in a story of intrigue and mystery. While reading the letters and journals of her ancestors and discovering a wealth of inventions aimed at allowing humans to visit the fairy realm unharmed, Maddi slowly becomes aware of the faeries and their world.

It’s fairy fashion heaven at the The Museum at FIT, accredited by the American Alliance of Museums at Seventh Avenue at 27 Street, New York City, NYC, USA. The Fairy Tale Fashion exhibition runs from 15th January through until 16th April 2016.

According the the FIT website, Fairy Tale Fashion is a unique and imaginative exhibition that examines fairy tales through the lens of high fashion. In versions of numerous fairy tales by authors such as Charles Perrault, the Brothers Grimm, and Hans Christian Andersen, it is evident that dress is often used to symbolize a character’s transformation, vanity, power, or privilege. The importance of Cinderella’s glass slippers is widely known, for example, yet these shoes represent only a fraction of the many references to clothing in fairy tales.

Here at FAE Magazine – Faeries and enchantment, if you are a regular reader, you ail know that we simply adore faerie fashion, so this unique and exciting exhibition is right up our fairy street! the exhibition is being organised by Colleen Hill, and contains 80 plus items. You’ll find the creations of several high profile designers including, Thom Browne, Dolce and Gabbana, Tom Ford, Giles, Mary Katrantzou, Marchesa, Alexander McQueen, Rick Owens, Prada, Rodarte, and Walter Van Beirendonck, and more.

The existence of fairies has long been dismissed and resigned to the realm of children’s books and Disney films.

However Manchester Metropolitan University lecturer John Hyatt claims he now has proof the creatures are real and are residing in the Rossendale Valley.

And he is on a mission to get more adults to believe and ‘bring a bit of magic into their lives.’

DETAILS OF WENDY FROUD MASTER CLASSES

Beginning with a guided visualization, Wendy will show students how to access the unique gifts that can only be discovered by flexing one’s own imagination. She will enable the class to understand how to breathe life into a sculpture through an understanding of “anatomy with integrity.” The master model-maker will share her knowledge and technical expertise about how to construct an armatured creature that is fully capable of expression through movement. The head, hands, upper torso and feet will be sculpted while participants gain knowledge of proportion and technique. Students will work with the artist to paint their sculptures and finally finish them with embellishments of hair, costumes and accouterments. Wendy has given similar, abbreviated creative workshops in the past, and her students have always been overwhelmingly pleased about the artistic growth and inspiration they gained.

DETAILS OF BRIAN FROUD MASTER CLASSES

The Liminal Line – Drawing the Unseen | Brian will share his insights into the inner world of Faerie and teach his unique process of using a sketchbook and pencils to express and develop style, emotion and characters. Students will discover new realms of their own inner creative spirits when Brian shows them how to build pathways to new places in their imaginations.

He will show participants how the expressive use of line and color is a response to an impulse that exists in everything around us, and how to use it effectively as a tool when developing characters and finished drawings.

Both master classes are serious but light-hearted workshops, with no previous or professional experience required.
