If you haven’t already seen this amazing prequel to the classic Dark Crystal film featuring the incredible art of the legendary Brian Froud, what are you waiting for?

Not only is ‘Dark Crystal – Age of Resistance’ an amazing leap up from the original Dark Crystal film in every respect it is also a series that is ten hours long giving so much more Brian Froud to enjoy!  In a time of overdone CGI and trendy teen heroes ticking all the marketing boxes it is refreshing to see some real creativity at work in this Dark Crystal prequel. Brian Froud may be a lot older than the young artist who collaborated with Alan Lee on the classic “Fairies” book and made his name in the original Dark Crystal film (and also Labyrinth) but Brian Froud shows no signs of slowing down as he gets older. The work he has put into the look of this series is staggeringly creative and he is just going from strength to strength. This Dark Crystal series isn’t just an enjoyable fantasy story but with Brian Froud’s art it is a feast for the eyes for anyone aged 5 to 500! The characters are great fun and the detail is just wonderful. The lies and treachery of the Skeksis also reflect the world politics of our own world where we could easily feel that those in power are far more interested in their own agendas than serving their people. You can see more of Brian Froud’s amazing artwork here.

There will be an exhibition of painting by famous Brighton artist Dan Woods who died on 7th January this year on the weekends from May 4th to 26th at ‘The Church of the Good Shepherd’, Dyke Rd, Brighton BN1 5AE. It is part of the Artists Open Houses for the May festival in Brighton. Dan Woods exhibited there over the last couple of years and had full intended to display his work this year as well so his family and friends felt it was the right thing to do that on his behalf. His closest friend in Brighton, Mel Owens, is mainly looking after the arrangements. More info about the exhibition of Dan Woods paintings and other artwork can be found here. The section of Dan Woods art prints at Artists UK can be found here.
