So. I guess it's obvious that this blog has been somewhat abandoned, and that the abandonment coincides roughly with Maureen Starkey's win of the 2012 Hugo Award for Best Fan Artist.

Congratulations, Maureen!

I did have more names on my list to investigate. MJ Pajaron, Columbia Pho, Ingrid To, Anne Ballaran and Rochelle Green. Naoto Hattori, for an Apex cover, Rene Sears for nerdbroidery.

But it seems like the wimminz are doing OK, after all?

Best of luck to everyone who is eligible for the 2013 Hugo Award for Best Fan Artist!
