Thank you Delphyne for permission to republish the above SF art.

Delphyne is a well-known artist and fan artist. Wikipedia says:

Delphyne Joan Hanke-Woods won the Hugo Award for Best Fan Artist in 1986, after having been nominated for the award every year since 1980 (inclusive).

While best known as a fan, she has worked professionally, illustrating works by Philip José FarmerMichael ResnickTheodore Sturgeon, and A. E. van Vogt, among others.

Denvention 3 (the world science fiction convention held in Denver, Colorado in 2008) listed Delphyne as a participant, says:

Delphyne Joan Hanke-Woods was taught to read by her grandfather in 1949 using his son’s 1930s science fiction and fantasy pulp magazines stored in the attic of the family’s rambling bungalow in Chicago’s Ravenswood neighborhood. However, she remained innocent of science fiction fandom until 1975′s Star Trek Chicago, then was assaulted by Windycon in 1976.

Delphyne has received numerous convention art awards and won the annual FAAN award for fanzine artwork three consecutive times. Nominated for the Best Fan Artist Hugo award seven times consecutively, she won in 1984. She subsequently sidled out of fandom, attending night school to study computer art techniques and generally fool around. Currently, with the help of friends, she is re-discovering fandom.
