And a student of mine told me today in class that SPECTRUM 13is out. I have not seen it, but it is out.And I have a few pieces in there, with yes, Silver Award! (Please see right) When do I get the statuette?? I am SO looking forward to it!

I have to confess, I am secretly fantasizing of becoming a sci-fi fantasy artist. As a kid, I used to collect all the Frank Frazetta paperback covers. And I am proud to say I still own them! Does any AD out there want to risk hiring me to do a sci-fi fantasy cover? ….well maybe not.. Some things are better kept as a fantasy.
