There’s this pretty nifty sci-fi author guy called John Scalzi. You may have heard of him. If not, well, you’re missing out on some really good stories. You really should go read (or listen to) one of his books right away.
At any rate, he has this book called Redshirts coming out June 5th. It’s about redshirts. I know, right? I’m giddy with anticipation, but I digress. So, Scalzi decided it might be fun to have a little slideshow of fan art before the release. The only problem was that he had no fan art since the book hasn’t been released yet. Being the clever fellow he is, he decided to kindly ask folks to make some fan art. There is even a contest for the best of the lot.
Making art of poor space explorers being menaced and most likely eaten, smashed, and/or disembowled – yeah, count me in.
Thus, my entry was made and sent in and lo, it came to pass that my piece had made the top five entries. Huzzah!
Granted there are four other very very nice entries to contend with. They are all glorious in their Redshirt mayhem. Voting is open until noon ET, May 29th. I’m not saying you should vote for me… well actually, I am. PLEASE VOTE FOR ME! However, I won’t be put out if you like the others better. They are all fabulous.
