Alan F. Beck has been an artist, designer and illustrator for over thirty years doing work for many major corporations including book covers and magazine illustrations. His work has been exhibited in art shows and conventions all across the country. He has won numerous awards and honors including two Chesley award nominations and a Hugo award nomination, and received a “Body of Work” Award at the LA Con IV Worldcon Art Show.
Alan first came to my attention when he contacted me to ask if I’d be interested in using his art for Nth Degree. His first illustration appeared in Issue #12, December 2004. Since then, he’s contributed artwork to every issue and has been featured on the cover three times (including this issue).
I’ve also been fortunate to meet Alan on several occasions, and have had him as a Guest of Honor at RavenCon. Take a look at his work here, and you’ll see why he’s always at the top of my list for a Best Artist Hugo Award. Enjoy.
