ARTIST GUEST OF HONOR
Sam Flegal has been an illustrator since 2009, with clients that include the History Channel’s “True Monsters” and “The Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse” from Paramount pictures. His work has been featured on Every Day Original and he has been a guest at numerous conventions including Dragon Con.
In his personal work, Sam focuses on “Fateful Signs,” a series of fantasy drawings and paintings that delve deep into the ancient lore of the Norse, bringing to light the insights of our ancestors in a way that connects to the emotional experience of modern people, all under the guise of epic fantasy glory. If Joseph Campbell guzzled a gallon of Heavy Metal, Fateful Signs is what you’d get.
Recently Sam has had great success with "The Illustrated Hávamál," and “The Illustrated Völuspá” both of which contain over a 1000 year old Viking poetry in a hardcover cloth bound manual with over 100 pages that explore the meaning behind this ancient collection of Norse wisdom and prophecy through a series of around one hundred meditative ink drawings. Funded through Kickstarter with great success, Sam has sold over 1000 copies of each book.
Nerdy Birdy Burlesque
Ginger Oh Snap
Appearing at Shadowcon this year if the Nerdy Birdy Burlesque Troupe. The group is composed of performers from Nashville and Memphis plus a couple of ladies from other areas. Their themed
performances are highly suited for our con attendees. You may see a superhero, an evil queen, or even a mermaid. There could be anything or anybody. So come to the burlesque to see what we have this year and stash a couple of bucks to bring and toss in the hat for the ladies.
