The Chelsey Awards, which were established by the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists, recognize individual artistic achievement for any given year. You can take a look at all of 2017’s nominees here, and check out the artists in the “Best Cover” category here.

But ladies and gentlemen, we are not quite through – Victo has also been nominated for a Hugo Award in the “best professional artists” category! This is an incredibly prestigious honor from members of the Science Fiction community. Worldcon 75 members are now eligible to begin voting – but you know who we’ll be rooting for!

EDIT: Just as we were posting the above news, Victo sent us yet another update – she is also a top ten finalist for the Locus Award! Winners for this annual prize are selected by members of the Locus Magazine community. It goes without saying that winning the popular vote would be quite an honor. We will be sure to keep you updated as the results come in.

Tools and Resources from the Graphic Artists Guild

When is the last time you brushed up on Copyright law? How in tune are you with your rights as a freelance illustrator?

It is prudent that all artists take a moment from time to time to brush up on their knowledge – especially before trouble hits!

The Graphic Artists Guild has a great list of tools on their website that we wanted to share with you, in addition to in their invaluable printed handbook. If it’s been awhile since you’ve last read up on the ins and outs of the legal side of the business, we strongly recommend that you take a look.
