It's Been A Good Day

Found out this morning that I was selected for the 20th edition of SPECTRUM: THE BEST IN CONTEMPORARY FANTASTIC ART. Congrats to all of the artists who made the list! :)

Fast forward a few hours, and the 2013 Hugo Award nominee announcement went public announcing that I'm a 2013 finalist for Best Professional Artist!

Grateful and honored to be in the company of Dan Dos Santos, Julie Dillon, Chris McGrath, and Vincent Chong. Congrats, folks -- and to all of the nominees! :) This is the first Hugo nomination for Julie, Chris and Vincent. It's the fifth for Dan.

The complete list of 2013 Hugo Awards nominees is here, and it's a list full of surprises and new blood, which is great to see.

The final voting for the Hugos will open soon. Details here.

I'll be in San Antonio for this year's LoneStarCon 3, where the Hugo ceremony will take place over Labor Day weekend. Should be a blast!

And in the coming weeks, I'll find out which piece of my 2012 work was selected for this year's Spectrum annual, which releases in November.

Been a good day. These kind don't happen often.

Might be a good time for a Macallan 25. ;)
