Chesley Award–Winner Spotlight: Julie Dillon

The Chesley Awards for achievement in art are given each year by the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists at the World Science Fiction Convention. This will be a series of posts to spotlight each winner from this year’s event. First up (in random order) is Julie Dillon.

Julie Dillon won the Unpublished Color category with “Planetary Alignment,” shown above. Julie’s work often sports and bold use of color and complex compositions, held together by excellent value control. Mix that all up and she creates amazing dream-like scenes I wish I could step into.

Look at a list of all 2011 Chesley Award winners and nominees and visit Julie Dillon’s website for more images and process posts.

Julie also created the artwork for’s short story “The Dala Horse” by Michael Swanwick.
