FK fanart (It can happen!)  
If we all worked together, do you think that we might muster a roster of excellent Forever Knight fanart works sufficient for a month as a volunteer recommender on [community profile] fanart_recs? I'll do the writing and posting, if needed, if together we can gather enough worthy graphics.

FK has always been a primarily text-based fandom, in part because its heyday came and went on dial-up modems. We just didn't have the technology to share pictures. We've had artists, though! Dorothy E. painted some oil portraits. Ann L. drew the covers on my most beloved Susan G. zines. Almost every zine had some original art (heck, I inked two mediocre graphics for the Tojours Lacroix zine myself — no, seriously, I did! a Fleur portrait and a silhouetted Lacroix with a rose; I still have my original watercolor of the Fleur portrait somewhere, but goodness knows where). Remember the gentleman who drew the Forever Janette webcomic a few years ago? And Deire contributed an N&N illustration to FKFicFest in 2013!

If we could gather enough compelling art links in time, we could volunteer for the month of May, and perhaps raise interest on the way into FKFicFest sign-ups...? Just a thought.

Addendum: [community profile] fanart_recs "Intro & Rules" and "FAQs"

How about all of Greer Watson's icons for the various fan factions? That would be a good place to start. :-) Walt

Re: FK FanArt
Kind thought. :-)

But, actually, icons aren't permitted.

From their community statement: "You can rec drawn and painted fanart (whether traditional or digital media), photomanips, sculptures, fiber art, etc. Multimedia works that have a significant fanart component are also okay to rec, e.g. fan comics or story illustrations. You cannot rec fanfic, vids, icons, picture macros, costume designs, or fannish music/audio productions."
