While filming continues on The Last Witch Hunter in Pittsburgh, Elijah took a little break to attend the Steel City Tattoo Convention. Columnist and musician Dan Lorenzo said Elijah (who as usual) showed up unescorted and super low key. Judging from the photos it didn't take long for people to find him.
:: Was he getting a feel for another tattoo? Seems so. After leaving the convention in Pittsburgh, Elijah surprised everyone by attending Fantastic Fest that took place in Austin. Not only did he get to talk about his new film Open Windows which will be on VOD and iTunes October 2nd, he also got a new tattoo. Check out the photos here.

Back in 2001, the first webmistress Lucy put this site together to inform fans of the most current events with Elijah and we continue that to this day. We are extremely proud to be the longest continuing fan site of Elijah's. A&F wouldn't be here without readers, followers and certainly without Elijah. To commemorate this anniversary, I have put together a couple of wallpapers looking back over those years.

That's all... for now.
