It’s May here at Fanartica, and that means it’s that special time of year when people finally emerge from their homes after a long winter and head straight to the movie theater! Over the past few years, J.J. Abrams has established himself as one of the heralds of summer. So now, we pay homage to all things mysterious, from Lost to Alias, from Star Trek to Super 8, from Cloverfield to…AAAAAAKK!! LENS FLARES!!!
In addition, we’ll also be delving into the canon of non-Disney/Pixar animation. So dig deep for those Don Bluth treasures hidden at the back of the VHS drawer you had as a child. Bring back the memories of Rankin/Bass, and revel in the new adventures from Dreamworks and Blue Sky.
And always remember: There are no cats in America.
Due to the distressing events in Boston, Boston Comic Con has been cancelled until further notice. Fanartica has worked very hard to prepare for the con so we’re hugely disappointed, but we also understand the necessity to cancel.
Fanartica was founded in Boston and the majority of our members live there. I just want to say that I love my city, we love our city. And we’re so going to BRING IT when BCC is rescheduled!
WOW!!!! 1 MILLION FOLLOWERS!!!!! Haha, no, just APRIL FOOLS :p
A while back we explored “Misunderstood” Villains, but this time I want to give the guys and gals that openly dedicate themselves to badness a spotlight.
April showers might keep you inside a lot this month, so it’s a perfect time to rewatch all your favorite cult classics. Brush off the “Freaks & Geeks” box set, pop in the original “Evil Dead” VHS, or take a day trip to Baltimore to get reference photos for a John Waters illustration (and remember to draw a Natty Boh, that beer has a cult following).
