   Okay, so maybe the Sally Fields quote is a bit out of place (and time), since this is not about me personally, but about the weird little drawings I like to do and send around to various SF fanzines. Still, I have to admit I am was flattered and even a bit surprised when I found out I had made it onto the final ballot for the Hugo Fan Artist catergory again this year. The Fan categories in the Hugo awards have been in a bit of an upheaval in recent years, and I figured as an old dinosaur of fandom, my time might be over. But, you let me back at least one more time, and thanks so much for that!

   So, here we go again, I've put together this list of those pieces of art I had published in 2012 in sf fandom. Lots of the usual zines, plus convention program books, tee-shirts, a couple of certificates, and a logo or two.

   I've picked some of the larger pieces, usually covers, to showcase in the top rows of art shown. After that you'll find a full listing of all zines with my art for 2012. Where possible, I've added a link that will take you right to the entire fanzine to check out. These days, even folks who are still known mainly for publishing in print will often put up an online version as well, so it's possible to see a lot more of these.

   (Finally, as I note on every page here, don't forget to check out my main site, where I do the pro-artist thingy, at Jabberwocky Graphix. Buy soon, and buy often, so I can continue to support my fannish habit!)

   Here is the full list of sf zines that published some of my art in 2012, both in print and on-line. More and more of these, even if they have print editions, are also putting up on-line versions, so I've provided links where I can find them. (And remember, many of these editors are always happy to have new contributors, so don't make me do all of this by myself- send some of your own writing and art to them and join the fun! There's no money to be made here, but if we wanted to be rich, wouldn't we all have real jobs?)
