Denvention3, the 66th World Science Fiction Convention, has told the Nest that Rick Sternbach has accepted an invitation to be the Artist Guest of Honour for the convention.
Rick Sternbach has been a space and science fiction artist since the early 1970s, often combining both interests in a project. His clients include NASA, Sky and Telescope, Data Products, Random House, Smithsonian, Analog, Astronomy, The Planetary Society, and Time-Life Books. He is a founding member and Fellow of the International Association of Astronomical Artists (IAAA). Rick has written and illustrated articles on orbital transfer vehicles and interstellar flight for Science Digest.
Beginning in the late 1970s Rick added film and television illustration and special effects to his background, with productions like Star Trek: The Motion Picture, The Last Starfighter, Future Flight, and Cosmos, for which he and other members of the art team received an Emmy award, the first for visual effects. Rick also twice received the coveted Hugo award for best professional science fiction artist, in 1977 and 1978.
Lois McMaster Bujold will be Author Guest of Honor and Tom Whitmore will Fan Guest of Honor. Author and scientist Wil McCarthy will be the Toastmaster for the convention.
