Hooray!! 2009 Hugo Award Finalist!!

I'm proud, thrilled and honored to be a Hugo Award Finalist for Best Professional Artist! I'm at Coastcon 32 in Biloxi, MS at the moment. Normal routine returns Sunday night. In the meantime, I'm really happy. Congrats to all nominees in all of the categories. I'm especially proud to be in the company of Bob, Donato, Dan, and Shaun. And special shoutout to Lou Anders for his Best Editor nom, and the two noms for FAST FORWARD 2, of which I illustrated the cover. Gonna be a great weekend. :)

Thanks, Jamie.....I really appreciate it. We'll see what happens....the best advice I can give is for folks to check out as many of the nominees as possible and vote when the final balloting eventually commences. :) It's an amazing ballot in all categories this year.....I'm proud to be a part of it.
