Charles Vess here: What a lovely selection of art! I just wish the rest of the awards (Hugos, Locus, etc.) had this much diversity in their choices.

Yes, thanks for posting. I had hoped to attend myself this year, but maybe next year. Great to see Omar Rayyan win for "The Long Walk Home."

Thanks for posting, and congratulations to all the amazing artists! Could you correct my name, though, under the sculpture runners-up- it's DalvA. Thanks!
