Chesley Nominations

ASFA has announced this year's nominations for the Chesley Awards.

I was very pleased to see that Magali Villenueve was nominated for her extraordinary and beautiful work on this year's Ice & Fire calendar.





My congratulations to Magali. She faces some formidable competition, but we'll be rooting for her. She's a very talented young artist, and I hope we'll be seeing a lot more of her work in the years and decades to come.

Also, I see that Richard Anderson is up for best hardcover cover for his cover for my friend Vic Milan's novel DINOSAUR LORDS. Well deserved. It's a stunning cover.

FILE 770 has the whole list here:

((I do wish that the Hugo Awards would get rid of the 'Best Professional Artist' category, and go with a Best Cover award instead, like the Chesleys. Reward the work, not the person)).

Congratulations
Congratulations Magali. Fingers crossed that you will win. I have the calendar and it is up on my wall. Magali's take of Dany sitting on her silver in pure 'warrior queen' mode is the best drawing I have ever seen of the character. Unlike most drawings, she doesn't look frail and delicate. But more like she should be (for a woman who has spent a considerable time ridding a horse and outdoors) strong, athletic and formidable.

I hope that George and TPTB either reconsider their rule of not inviting an artist back for another year. Or at the very least give us another ASOIF art book.
