The Magic of Elfwood

Writers, as all artists, find inspiration in many places. If I'm feeling melancholy, I like to wander around the magical realm of Elfwood. I've featured a few artists here before, and I would like to introduce you to some more of the artists who tell stories with their images, and whose beautiful works are like dew on a parched soul. I will link each image to its original; if you click under the image, you get to see each artist's current Elfwood gallery.

I liked Jeff's drawing the best but found this original poem astonishing here:

Do you know what the term 'Keltheenian riddle poem, circa 513 P.S. (Pre Sundering)' is?
Does it refer to Celtic?

It's from another Fantasy world - since the site is for science fiction and fantasy, they're not limited to "earthly" poems :) That's why I love the site so much - it's filled with people who believe in magic, and create it :)

Those are awesome drawings, did you say there are sci-fi artists too?

Yeah, there are, take one of the tours there (on the left side bar, click on "find stuff" and then "take a guided tour" and choose one that sounds sci-fi) - I'm more interested in the Fantasy, so I didn't put any of those here, but there's plenty.
