Mili Fay--Portrait by Catia Da Costa of CDC Photography

© 2014 CDC PHOTOGRAPHY

Mili Fay, an award-winning artist, trained as a classical animator at Sheridan College, but when computer animation took over the field, she decided that she loved drawing more than animating. In November of 2011 she created Mili Fay Art determined to support the world one artwork at a time. Today, she passionately creates imaginative artwork and stories, always graced with a humorous modern twist.

Currently, Mili is working on an epic YA fantasy series, Warriors of Virtue, about a reluctant princess, Lauraliee, who learns to become a queen as she defends Ardan from dragon-people (people who turn into dragons).

WELCOME!

I hope you’ll have a lot of fun, and feel free to invite your friends throughout the day.

MYSTERY PAINTING REVEALED!

Flying Pegausu

Flying Pegasus. The color is ispired by the character from Disney’s Hercules.

Other than a dragon, which was kind of represented in MythoJuly on July 21, 2017, Pegasus is my favorite mythological creature. Did you know he is the son of Poseidon and the Gorgon Medusa?

TRIVIA, LIVE SKETCHING REQUESTS, AND Q&A

Throughout the day, I will post 3 mythology trivia questions in the comments. The first person to Reply with the correct answer, can ask me to sketch anything, and I mean anything. I will attempt to film myself sketching and broadcast my efforts Live on Instagram. FYI, I have a ridiculous fear of being on camera, so please be patient with me.

I will also attempt to answer questions while sketching, but sometimes I cannot draw and talk at the same time. So… write your questions in the comments on this post, and I’ll get to them between the Live Sketching Streams. Just make sure your question has not been asked, because otherwise this page can get very messy.

You can also comment and interact with other attendees on this page or on Social Media: Mili Fay Art on Instagram, Mili Fay Art Facebook Page, and Facebook Event Page.

Schyler Sisters from Hamilton

Trivia Prize 1: Schuyler Sisters from Hamilton

Schuyler Sisters from Hamilton Colored

Trivia Prize 3: Glinda and Elphaba from the musical Wicked.

GRAND PRIZE DRAW

If you have shared this event, and I have not acknowledged your efforts, let me know so that I can add you to the Grand Prize Draw. I have never done this before, so there may have been some glitches. The minimum for the draw is 10 persons per prize (See previous post). If this minimum has not been met, a consolation prize will be sent to the few participants who have helped share this event on Social Media.

Best!

GRAND PRIZE DRAW DATE

The Requirements have not been met, so there will be no Grand Prize Draw.

The day of, I will pick the winners from a hat on Instagram Live. If you do not have Instagram, not to worry, I’ll save the video and post it on YouTube.

Also, I think there is no point to having a draw unless at least 5 people are present in either category, so if there are less than 5, this draw will not happen. Those who do participate may get a consolation prize.
