ABOUT LYNNE TAYLOR FAHNESTALK
Lynne spent most of her childhood drawing dinosaurs and purple bunnies. Since then she has served as Art Director for three national magazines, started her own printing company, created a comic strip for cows, illustrated a book about fish, taught pen and ink drawing classes, and self-published two books of her own work: A Science Fiction Coloring Book and The Really Silly Cartoon Book.
Lynne is an illustrator, cartoonist, and sculptor. Her mediums of choice for her 2D pieces are pencil crayon/colored pencil and pen and ink. She shows her work in galleries and at major science fiction convention art shows. Her work has also appeared in numerous publications including Amazing Stories Magazine, On Spec Magazine, Polar Borealis Magazine, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Fantasy Magazine, Dragon magazine, and Science Fiction Review.
In addition to her 2D work Lynne also creates one-of-a-kind robot sculptures from upcycled metal objects. These Bots have been described as 3-D cartoons and she likes that comparison. The question she is asked most often about her Bots is, “Do they move?” and her answer is “Not when I’ve been looking.”
Lynne is a two-time recipient of the prestigious Canadian Prix Aurora Award for Artistic Achievement. (This award is the Canadian equivalent of the Hugo Award).
Lynne lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada with her wonderful husband and a house full of amazing things.
