Week Three of OUR Favorites, Day One: Diversity in Fantasy Art-Julie Dillon+ Ellen Oh's Prophecy/Warrior & Sarwat Chadda's The Savage Fortress/The City of Death giveaway!

So were half way through the month of our favorites! There are so many topics to choose from, and this week's subject was actually a last minute thing!

So Libertad and I were thinking....What are the types of websites we go on to see diversity in SFF, or anything for that matter? 

Whenever on the search for anything with diversity, artwork are typically the most visually stimulating it gets. We spend so much time on Deviantart, Pinterest and Tumblr, that it seemed most appropriate to highlight artists, or concept creators of multicultural Science Fiction and Fantasy art.

First on the list:

Julie Dillon

I think she'll be the one artist most people are familiar with. She's designed for major publishing houses, such as Simon & Schuster and Tor Books.

For many of you, you'll recognize her work on the cover of the "Long Hidden" anthology, which features works from Nnedi Okorafor, Tananarive Due and other amazing authors!

She even has a kickstarter campaign, which only has about three days left! It features diverse artwork of fantastical characters of many races, and it looks awesome!

If you're interested in checking it out before the clock runs out, here's the link!

Here are ways to support her through social media:
