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 wis a series of posts to spotlight each winner from this year’s event.
One of the advanatges of following awards is discovering new artists. I didn’t know about Graciano until the nominations were announced (proving I’m not as up to date with the gaming artists as I should be.) Going through his website was a treat, he’s clearly someone inspired by golden age illustrators with nice bold brushstrokes that he’s not afraid to let show.
