I was fortunate enough to win one of the L Ron Hubbard Illustrators of the Future awards last year and part of the prize package was a weeklong expenses paid trip to Pasadena, CA for a black-tie awards ceremony and artists workshop. One of the artists giving a workshop presentation was the great Stephen Hickman, an icon in the Science Fiction and Fantasy illustration field. Stephen gave us some great advice and a glimpse into his creative process. I know he influenced me throughout the years with his fantastic book covers. Stephen just won the Chesley Award for his painting "The Harp of Galadriel."
I love his science fiction art!
