Long live Claire

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Imaginenation -

As a huge fan of ImagineFX since 2006, I’ve been so thrilled with the mag­a­zine and I think you’ve been do­ing a won­der­ful job. It’s my favourite mag­a­zine and ev­ery month I’m al­ways su­per ex­cited to get the new­est is­sue in the post.

I just wanted to write to vo­calise my sup­port for Claire since read­ing that let­ter in is­sue 122 that at­tacked her as in­ten­tion­ally sex­ist, and the pre­vi­ous let­ter that seemed to im­ply you were some­how ac­ci­den­tally sex­ist. One of the beau­ti­ful things about art com­mu­ni­ties and in par­tic­u­lar ImagineFX as a mag­a­zine and plat­form is its fo­cus on art and artists, no mat­ter who they are, where they come from, the colour of their skin or what’s be­tween their legs.

As such, it’s es­pe­cially sad­den­ing to see peo­ple try­ing to throw slan­der around, di­vide the com­mu­nity and drag iden­tity pol­i­tics into one of the most equal and open art plat­forms I’ve ever seen. As Her­nan men­tioned in the third let­ter of the same is­sue, the con­sis­tent fo­cus on the art above all else is ex­tremely mo­ti­va­tional and a very praise­wor­thy as­pect of ImagineFX. In short: the mag­a­zine is great. Never mind the haters, you’re do­ing one hell of a job! David Far­rel, via email

Beren replies Claire’s not around to re­spond to your email, but I’m cer­tain she’d ap­pre­ci­ate your kind words - and we all ap­pre­ci­ate your love for the mag.
