Lynne Taylor Fahnestalk

Lynne spent most of her childhood drawing dinosaurs and purple bunnies. Since then she has served as Art Director for three national magazines, started her own printing company, created a comic strip for cows, produced a science fiction colouring book, The Really Silly Cartoon Book, and illustrated a book about fish. She has also discussed composting toilets with Frank Herbert and penmanship with Harlan Ellison.

Lynne is an illustrator, cartoonist, and sculptor. She is a two time recipient of the national Canadian Prix Aurora Award for Artistic Achievement and her work has appeared in numerous publications including Amazing Stories Magazine, On Spec Magazine, Fantasy and Science Fiction Magazine, Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Fantasy Magazine, and Science Fiction Review.

Lynne’s current passion is creating one-of-a-kind robot sculptures from up-cycled metal objects. These have been described as 3-D cartoons and she likes that comparison. The question she is asked most often about her Bots is, “Do they move?” and her answer is “Not when I’ve been looking.”

Lynne lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, with her wonderful husband and a house full of Bot parts.
