Cal-elf-fornia Dreaming with Guest Wendy Pini

I'll be broadcasting from the Left Coast this week, and will have the delight of sitting down (at the same mic, even!) with my favorite author/artist/visionary, Wendy Pini. It will be a free-for-all hour of talk about creating stories, mentoring, growing up, apart and together...join us for an hour of stimulating conversation, raucous bouts of laughter, and the occasional reading question at 248-809-3475!

Born in San Francisco in 1951, Wendy Pini grew up in Gilroy, CA. Largely self taught, her artistic talents were influenced by turn-of-the-century illustrators, film and TV animation, Shakespeare, Japanese history, fairy tales, myths and modern fantasy. Wendy began exhibiting her artwork at sci-fi conventions in the mid '60s, garnering awards and recognition.

In 1972 she married Richard Pini and in 1974 she began her professional career as an illustrator for magazines such as "Galaxy" and "Worlds of If." In 1978 Wendy and Richard co-founded WaRP Graphics and ELFQUEST was born. As the first manga-influenced graphic novel series with a high fantasy theme to be published in America, it became an international phenomenon attracting male and female readers of all ages. As of ELFQUEST'S thirtieth anniversary, millions of related comics, graphic novels, books, calendars and other merchandise have been sold worldwide.

Wendy has worked for various publishers such as Marvel, First Comics, Comico, Frazetta Fantasy Illustrated and DC Comics. She wrote and painted two critically acclaimed graphic novels based on the hit TV series "Beauty and the Beast" and supplied text and illustrations for "Law and Chaos," an art book inspired by the writings of Michael Moorcock.
In 1997 Wendy had the rare privilege of designing the elfin mascot for the Enclosed Laminar Flames investigation (ELF) an experiment performed in space by members of the crew of Space Shuttle Columbia.

In the Fall of 2010 Warner Bros. renewed its option on ELFQUEST as a major motion picture with Lorenzo DiBonaventura (TRANSFORMERS, SALT) as producer and Rawson Marshall Thurber as director.

Also in 2010 Wendy completed her animated web comic MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH, which has received over 10,000,000 hits and which has been published as a limited edition 400 page graphic novel by Warp Graphics/Father Tree Press. Recently Wendy completed the libretto for a musical adaptation of MASQUE and is currently consulting with a composer.


About Corbie Mitleid:

Corbie Mitleid has been on the mystic’s path for over 30 years -- meeting challenges, always questioning, leading the “examined life.” It’s proved to her an essential Cosmic Truth: God gives all of us what we need for a life filled with miracles and joy, and as long as our hearts are open, whole, and aligned with our Source Energy, anything is possible. (And it never hurts to bring laughter on the path with us!) If she can share that blessing with you, she feels she's doing things right.

After dancing with breast cancer three times, I learned that first-hand. My job is to give you the tools and courage to deal with both situations. Everything else is free will, and up to you!”

Corbie travels internationally, bringing insight, hope and encouragement to clients dealing with indecision, confusion, fear, even depression.  Now she expands her work to a worldwide radio audience.  Listen, connect, and cross the bridge from where you are to where you want to be with Fire Through Spirit on Empower Radio!
