After the previous announcements of artists Frank Cho (Shanna, Liberty Meadows, Ultimates), Dave Gibbons (Watchmen, Martha Washington), famed cartoonist Lectrr and Brandon Peterson (Ultimate Vision, Medieval Spawn/Witchblade, Strange, Mystic) to our 20th anniversary show in Gent, Belgium, we are now pleased to introduce fantasy artist Anne Stokes as a guest of our venue.
Anne Stokes has worked as a freelance illustrator and produced art for many clients in the games industry, including illustrations for Wizards of the Coast’s Dungeon and Dragons rule books and miniatures.
“It is just a thrill to have the F (Fantasy) in F.A.C.T.S. envisioned in such a renowned fantasy artist as UK-based Anne Stokes”, said Emmanuel van Melkebeke, F.A.C.T.S. Convention Director. “Her imagery of dragons and especially gothic fairies are haunting!”
Many more guests, including actrices and actors, are still to be announced.
