There was an art show at LTUE (Life, The Universe, and Everything) in Provo, Utah this year! It was fun to have my sculptures on display there. I had to cover up Queen of the Seas for it, but it still turned out great.
I am pleased to announce that I have won the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artist's Chesley Award for Best Dimensional Art for 2014 for Queen of the Seas. What a year it has been for this sculpture. It was first accepted into Spectrum 20, then it was featured in the Society of Illustrator's Spectrum Exhibit in NYC as one of about seven sculptured picked from the last five years of Spectrum. And now it won a Chesley Award at Worldcon in London. What an honor.
My wife and I went to NYC to attend the Spectrum Exhibit on September 12th. It was so fun to go to New York City for the first time. I'd only been to the airport previously. I had so much fun at the exhibit opening. I was able to meet some great artists like Michael Whelan, Greg Manchess, Boris Vallejo, and Julie Bell. I was also able to meet the man in charge of Spectrum, John Fleskes. It was so much fun. My Queen of the Seas bronze sculpture was front and center in the exhibit. What an honor.
Thank you so much to the Society of Illustrators for putting this together.
