Editor's Note: This event has been canceled. Look for COSine, a completely unaffiliated sci-fi con happening the same three days at the same location (firstfridayfandom.org/cosine).
When local artist Myles Pinkney signed his 2011 Wizards & Mystics calendar and other of his fantasy art at a local Barnes & Noble in December, he signed for six hours. If you missed that amazing tournament of autographs, your next chance to catch him will be at this weekend's three-day Mysticon faerie fest at the Crowne Plaza (2886 S. Circle Drive, coloradofaeriefestival.com). Pinkney will be the featured artist sharing his wares and knowledge amid other fantasy-realm-related activities such as practical magic and mask-making workshops, music by Tuatha, and two costume balls (one for dancing white fairies tonight and another for those more devilishly inclined on Saturday). Tickets range from $15 to $60. BYOW. (Wings, yo.) — Kirsten Akens
