I don’t want to forget to check out the artists who were nominated for the Hugo this year. Partly for my benefit and partly in case any of you with voting memberships also want to check out the artists and don’t necessarily want to take the time to look everyone up, here are the artists, with links.
The last one, Carter Reid, I couldn’t quickly find anything of his but the Zombie Nation webcomic I linked. I poked around for five minutes, but if he has a gallery somewhere, I didn’t happen across it. If anybody cares to share a link, great; if not, well, his work doesn’t really seem comparable to the other nominated artists.
Best Professional Artist
My first impression: I like Julie Dillon, I’ve always liked Julie Dillon, I like her use of color and organic curvy shapes, and I am probably going to put her first.
