Hugo Recommendations: Best Professional Artist

This is how I am voting in the Best Professional Artist category. Of course, I merely
offer this information regarding my individual ballot for no particular
reason at all, and the fact that I have done so should not be confused
in any way, shape, or form with a slate or a bloc vote, much less a
direct order by the Supreme Dark Lord of the Evil Legion of Evil to his
390 Vile Faceless Minions or anyone else.

I’ll put up my complete ballot tomorrow. But in the meantime, perhaps this will help explain why I believe Kirk DouPonce to be one of the best cover artists in the business.
