Unicorn News and Announcements
I normally don't add anything new till the next monthly update, however when it's this important........"stop the press !"
There will soon be a new unicorn film released by a UK based production company, called....
Thanks to "Peakviewing Transatlantic" for giving me permission to use their material on this site.
It's a story of magic and adventure, which I'm informed will soon be be shown around the world on TV and is also coming out on video in the United States very soon, I hope they also release it in the UK.
There is a lot of information, pictures and a "Quick Time" movie trailer on the films website, so do visit it soon !
I hope to be able to obtain a copy on it's release, and write a review of it on this page too.
The art of Ed Beard Jr
I met this artist
at "King Richards Faire" Carver MA, on one of
my trips to visit some very good friends in the USA. Whilst there
I bought one of his wonderful Unicorn pictures. On returning home
I decided to check out his website. If anyone has an interest in fantasy art,
this is a site you must visit. Some of you may have seen his artwork already
on some of the "Magic the Gathering" cards or comic book covers ! He has an
outstanding range of work, and much of it is on show, and for sale on his website.

Recently I came across this excellent collection of tiles, borders, buttons, wallpaper and
other things, all with a unicorn theme, to help people with their website designs.
This original artwork is all done by Kathy Hoover, do visit it
Unicorn Sculptures by Juan Gilberto Hernandez
I was recently sent these
pictures and details of these wonderful 6 foot high sculptures
of unicorn heads, carved by an artist in Puerto Rico called Juan Gilberto Hernandez.
Each piece is around six feet high and two feet across, carved from a tree trunk.
It takes the artist many months of work to create these amazing works of art.
If you wish to know more, you can contact the artist at email@example.com
I recently read on Sue
Dawe's website that she will have a Unicorn
Calendar published for next year, 2001. I know many of you who love
her wonderful Unicorn artwork like I do will cheer at this news ! For more
on this, check out her website at http://www.inetworld.net/suedawe/
Pages of Special Merit
This is where I review pages
worthy of special merit each edition.
These are pages I've visited or revisited that have something
unique and original about them, or really do show that the author
has put a lot of effort into writing and designing the site.
It's a personal award really, to recognise hard work,
originality, good design and dedication to Unicorns.
This editions site
of merit is called Spaar Fantasy
This site has some astounding and very original digital artwork that has a real visual
"WOW!" factor. It is a collection of the artists original and unique designs, desktop
backgrounds and wallpapers. I first noticed the artwork some years ago, and have
watched with extreme interest as the artists style has developed. There are some unique,
sometimes unusual, but beautiful images that have been created. This style of artwork
may not suit everyone, but these pictures are unique, visually stunning and inspiring.
To create these images takes time and effort (as I well know !). So do take a look

Content and Originality
Original work is becoming
rarer, and certainly should be valued. But too many
websites recently though are copying others ideas and then claiming
sole right to it themselves ! They also often use annoying Java code that
stops the right mouse button from working. It's not easy to review pages
easily for mention on this page or bookmark them when half the
browsers functions have been disabled by unfriendly Java code !
really enjoyed this or have any comments, then please sign my Guestbook
to let me know you called so I can pay you a visit too !
