I’m excited and honored that Tor.com has sixteen illustrations selected for the upcoming Spectrum 21 art annual, two of which are short-listed for medals. Thank you to all our artists. You guys bring a depth to Tor.com that we could not achieve without you.
For those outside of the science fiction and fantasy art world, think of Spectrum Fantastic Art as the Hugos, Nebulas, and “Best of” all rolled up into one. Each year a jury selects a few hundred art pieces from the thousands that enter. Gold and silver medals are also awarded in eight categories, the winners of which will be announced at Spectrum Art Live in May. All of these images will be collected into Spectrum 21, available this fall.
Below, take a look through a gallery of the Tor.com images that will appear in Spectrum 21!
