Midwest FurFest 2003 Announces Guests of Honor
Midwest FurFest is pleased to announce its Guest of Honor lineup for 2003!
First off, we have the talented cartoonist Thomas Dye. Thomas is the writer and artist for Newshounds, an online comic strip which can be found at http://www.newshounds.com. Thomas has been cartooning in one form or another since 1991, and we at Midwest FurFest are excited to bring his talent and experience to our convention.
Next up, we have M.C.A. 'Micah' Hogarth. Two of her pencil scribbles appeared in the first issue of Yarf! in 1990. Since then, she's sold stories and art to
magazines as varied as Pangaia, Strange Horizons and the World Tree RPG. Her articles on writing have appeared in venues like Speculations, and her work has provided templates for costume designers and tattoo artists.. Further examples of her work can be found at http://www.stardancer.org.
Midwest FurFest has a long-standing tradition of promoting talent with roots in the Midwest. This year, we have Jeff 'Dbruin' Beedon as our local Guest of Honor. Jeff is a talented illustrator and designer. His work has appeared in past issues of the MFF conbook, as well as on our convention t-shirt last year. Further examples of his work can be found at http://www.furnation.com/deviant/TheDenL.htm.
All three of our Guests bring something unique to Midwest FurFest. We're excited about MFF 2003, and hope to see you all here in Chicago in November! For more information, keep an eye on our website at http://www.furfest.org.
