LOCUS / April 2012 Issue!

Artists -- if you've never picked up an issue of LOCUS MAGAZINE or haven't picked one up in a long time, you should have a look at the April 2012 issue, which is available for purchase online or at US newsstands by now.

The entire issue is dedicated to SF&F art and features interviews with Brom, Boris Vallejo & Julie Bell, Michael Whelan, Todd Lockwood, Bob Eggleton, Irene Gallo, Charles Vess, Kinuko Y. Craft, Julie Dillon, James Gurney, Stephan Martiniere, John Jude Palencar, Gregory Manchess, Donato Giancola, and more. Editor supreme Liza Groen Trombi and design goddess Francesca Myman masterminded this issue, and I think they outdid themselves. It's a great read and there's a lot of insight in these little interviews and galleries.
And if you go to the back of the issue -- there's a decent conversation there with me too. :) Note -- the one hilarious quibble I had with this issue -- if you look at the print edition and even the online edition, my skin looks like the Joker's. Yikes. If I ever get that white, I think it's time to pull the plug and call the coroner. LOL But that's the vagaries of printing for you. (Color-tweaked back to reality below. :)) The interview and art is what matters, and it's a huge pleasure to be in such great company. 'Hope you enjoy the read.Artists -- if you wanna see LOCUS shine more spotlight on art, show 'em by buying this issue today (and buy another for a friend). Worth your time and money! :)
