More Fiddler’s Green Guests Announced

From the FG-Announce list at Yahoo:

We’re VERY pleased to tell everyone that Todd Klein and Charles Vess will both be attending Fiddler’s Green!

Todd Klein was the letterer for the entire run of SANDMAN (except for a handful of issues), designing expressive and evocative fonts for the full range of characters. He has also collaborated with Neil Gaiman on several other projects, including BOOKS OF MAGIC, THE LAST TEMPTATION, and 1602. He is a multiple-times winner of both the
Eisner and Harvey awards, as well as others.

Charles Vess was the artist for both Shakespeare SANDMAN stories (the World Fantasy Award-winning #19 “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, and Eisner Award-winning #75 “The Tempest”), and has since collaborated with Neil Gaiman on a variety of other projects, including BOOKS OF MAGIC, BALLADS & SAGAS, and STARDUST.

They’ll both be participating in the convention program, and we plan to have some of their work on display in the art show.
