Participating Artists - Steve Stiles
Discovered s.f. fandom in 1957 and immediately began cartooning. Since then I've won seven Fan Activity Achievement (FAAn) Awards for best artist. In 1998 I won the first Bill Rotsler Award (which was Very Cool since Bill was one of my heroes) and I frequently (since 1967!) get nominated for the Best Fan Artist Hugo Award.
Best Award: Getting married to Elaine!
Professionally I began working for Marvel's British comic line in '75, and then branched out into a wide variety of comic genres, ranging from humor to horror, including work for the award winning Xenozoic Tales and the recently reprinted The Adventures of Professor Thintwhistle. In 2008 I designed a Humanitarian Achievements medal for the Samaritan community in Israel for the purpose of promoting peace in the Mid East.
A fanzine interlineation I coined, "Death Is Nature's Way Of Telling You When To Stop," became a national catch phrase after being reprinted in Pageant Magazine in 1962, but I'll bet it never winds up in my obit – well, that's life!
