Friday, 12pm: Panel: Future of Art and Artists in SF/F Ambassador Salon 2

Traditional and digital publishing is constantly, rapidly, evolving in SF/F. Publishers disappear and merge. Smaller ones arise. What are the implications for the visual arts in SF/F? Can artists make a living or are they migrating for their livelihoods? Pro artists discuss how they've evolved with the latest changes in publishing, creating revenue streams and art opportunities.

John Picacio (m), Kirbi Fagan, Carl Lundgren

Friday, 6pm: Who Is That Artist? Ambassador Salon 2

Our panelists and the audience look at images of SF and fantasy art and

suggest the name of the artist.

Murray Moore (m), John Picacio, Kirbi Fagan, Carl Lundgren

Saturday 2pm, Panel: Dressing A Fictional World Ambassador Salon 2

Clothes don't just make the man--they also make the character, their society, and their physical world. In this panel, experienced costumers team up with writers to build a world and determine how characters in it would dress, based on their physical, social, and personal background.

Aurora Celeste, Roberta Rogow, Deanna Sjolander, Kirbi Fagan, Mackenzie Morgan

Saturday, 4pm, Panel: Good, Bad, Ugly -- SF/F Cover Art & Design Mackinac East

What's good, what sucks, what could be better...a survey of covers, past and

present, of SF/F and comics, and talking about what works and what doesn't.

John Picacio (m), Saladin Ahmed, Scott H. Andrews, Kirbi Fagan
