Spectrum Fantastic Art

This weekend, I was honored to be one of the five judges on the Spectrum 17 jury, along with illustrators Iain McCaig, Rebecca Guay, Bill Carman , and publisher John Fleskes. It was a great group, both in the quality of judges and the content of entries. If you don't already know, Spectrum is an annual of the very best in contemporary fantastic art. We had some really tough decisions to make, but it was a joy to hang out with such fun, talented, and experienced people. I want to give a big thanks to Arnie and Cathy Fenner for inviting me to be a part of it all. This Spectrum link has more about the jury process. This link shows the winners!

It occurred to me that even though my full-time occupation is a Design Studio Manager (which involves developing concepts, art directing & evaluation, etc.), my web presence consists mostly of me just clowning around or goofing off. I thought I'd note that, just so you know my life doesn't only consist of things like noting how much Galactus's helmet looks like a frog.

What an honor, for all those folks to get to hang out with you for a day!

Amazing shots of the voting process on the SPECTRUM site...had no idea how many entries you had to choose from...a daunting task.

Hope you had fun!

I did have fun! I'm really looking forward to seeing the finished book later in the year!
