Transcript SEACON'S SPECIAL ART EXHIBITS We are fortunate at Seacon '79 in having, in addition to the usual open-to-all Art Show, two independently-staged Art Exhibitions, representing the best in British-based professional science-fiction and fantasy illustration. The Dragon's Dream/Paper Tiger Art Exhibition will take place in Hall 6 (see exhibition hall plans, page 48 ). This exhibit will also be open to the general public, so it is essential to wear your convention badge/identification when in transit between this exhibit and the Hotel Metropole; if you do not, your right to entry to the convention facilities may well be challenged by on-site security. Dragon's Dream was launched by the publication of Roger Dean's Views' in 1975. It introduced a format that was extraordinary at that time, and has become the hallmark of Dragon's Dream books. Large, full page colour reproductions are married with informative and lively texts, to produce a style that reflects the immediacy of film production techniques. Dragon's Dream publishes books that reflect contemporary, popular art, especially in the field of science-fiction, and comic strip illustration, and produces them to a standard that has attracted the best artists in these fields. Paper Tiger is perhaps best known for books like 'Album Cover Album' and 'Walk Away Rene', which gave record sleeve art, and modern commercial graphics in general, richly- deserved recognition. But the company also publishes books on astrology, 'Sword and Sorcery' illustration, and fantastic natural history. In its new list, Paper Tiger aims to revive the illustrated story-book, using the best contemporary writers and artists. The following Dragon's Dream/Paper Tiger artists are represented in this exhibit: CHRIS ACHILLEOS Since 1969, Chris Achilleos has become one of the foremost fantasy illustrators, mainly of book jackets featuring science-fiction and "Sword and Sorcery" tales. He cites as influences the Greek myths of his childhood, Frank Bellamy's "Eagle" strips, and American comic imports. He has lived in England since 1960. Paper Tiger published an anthology of his work, 'Beauty and the Beast', in 1978, and will publish a portfolio of his work this year. ROBERT BEER Robert Beer has studied Tibetan Thangka painting in India and Nepal. His work reveals a deep knowledge of Oriental religious art and iconography. He is currently illustrating The Loom of Light', legends of the Mahasiddhas, translated by Keith Dowman, to be published by Paper Tiger in 1979. Chris Achilleos JOHN BLANCHE John Blanche's artistic influences and interests are: "J.M.W. Turner, Arthur Rackham, Aubrey Beardsley, Edmund Dulac, Kay Nielson, Charles and William Heath Robinson". He has illustrated The Prince and the Woodcutter' by Henry Wolff, to be published by Paper Tiger in 1979. 81
