Attention faerie-loving Bay Area residents! Want to see Dark Crystal and Labyrinth artists Brian and Wendy Froud tonight? Of course you do!

Wendy Froud, a key member of the original conceptual team, was in charge of creating the Gelflings and also operated the radio-control mechanism that gave Jen his subtle facial expressions. For Labyrinth, Brian produced the drawings that gave inspiration to screenwriter, Terry Jones.
