I am in artist living in Austin Texas working in resin, clay and shrink plastic. I sell at different conventions in the states.
In 2019 I was a Hugo Finalist in the Fan Artist Category.
I am the president of ASFA, the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists and also work on other science fiction conventions in various roles. In 2012 I chaired ArmadilloCon, Austin’s local literary science fiction convention, and was the head of advertising for LonestarCon in 2013 and was head of art programming for LonCon 3, the Deputy Division head for marketing at MidAmeriCon 2 and am the art director for Dublin 2019. I have edited and designed the Artist showcase for Renovation, Chicon, Loncon 3 and Sasquan.
I designed the Hugo base for MidAmeriCon 2 and co-designed the base for Worldcon 76 in San Jose and have ideas for others. I also designed and created the first two YA/Lodestar awards presented in San Jose and Dublin 2019. Was on HGTV on a number of craft segments of various shows as well.

The artists showing work in this year’s Marcon Art Show!
My work is a trip into the bright colors of an impressionistic style shaped up with a comic book look lines.
I discovered my love of art in Jr High schooland pursued it to the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and have been mastering my personal style ever since.
Raymond VanTilburg is a self-taught artist who started creating fantastical images when he was old enough to pick up a crayon. Ray began selling paintings and drawings in the science fiction market at his first convention, Inconjunction in 1983. The next year he began selling his art on t-shirts, Marcon was the first convention that he was selling his art on t-shirts. Many people knew him as “that guy who airbrushes T-shirts” in the dealers room.
He continues to produce art beyond for t-shirts. Showing and selling originals in Science Fiction convention art shows. Stop in any Sci Fi Con art show and see the new mini paintings and drawings he has been producing.
