I am very proud to tell you all the my brother not only received a nomination, but he won the 2014 Chesley Award for the Best Three-Dimensional Art with his "Queen of the Seas" sculpture. He had some extremely tough competition that were competing for the award. For those of you that have never heard of this award, the Chesleys have long been internationally acclaimed as the most prestigious awards in the field of fantastic arts. These awards are nominated and decided upon by the members of the ASFA community, the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists. These are the same people that give out the Hugo awards every year. The awards are usually presented at the World Science Fiction Convention. This year they were presented in London.

My brother is a wonderful sculptor and he was also invited to put his "Queen of the Seas" on display in New York at the Society of Illustrators for the Spectrum exhibit that is still on display until the 18th of October. My brother had his sculpture bronzed before he shipped it off to New York for the exhibit. Here are some images of the sculpture:

My brother and I have always been artists and I am very proud that he has earned such fantastic awards for the long and hard hours he has put into his sculpting. Most of his competition for the Chesley were artists that are full-time sculptors. He really has shown that it doesn't matter if you work at your projects full-time, part-time, or just simply whenever you can, you can still achieve success if you have a passion for what you are doing.
