Just when you thought we must have exhausted our supply of eye-candy, we invite you all to join us in our Northpoint studio at 2pm SLT this week on Tuesday September 14th, as we explore the beautiful new region of Mythopoeia, belonging to the designer Grey Kurka.

Grey's work (selling through his stores, The Curious Prim) is already popular in steampunk and Baroque regions particularly, and his highly detailed, stunning textures are well-known in his products across the grid. We explored his new region of Mythopoeia and talked to Grey about his work and his inspirations ... in addition to seeing a large number of absolutely stunning creations!

For Grey not only has beautiful buildings - several of which we visit - he also has vehicles ranging from galleons to airships to steam-powered spacecraft. While, if you fancy a slower pace of life, you can always draw up your vardo (gypsy caravan) to a gypsy encampment, and enjoy the open air life ...

While you visit, do check out the animations. Grey has built created stunning ones!

In addition, Grey shares with us his concept of Fairypunk ... as well as introducing us to monsters of various kinds - while Saffia shares an unexpected talent as she tackles the Goldberg variations.

And there's a slide sequence from our photographer, PJ Trenton, to show you more of this truly lovely place! You can see all his photographs of Mythopoeia here.

The show starts at 2pm SLT, but you should be in our Northpoint studios by 1.30pm to make sure of getting a seat. And there will be special gifts for all who attend the show in the studio!
