They provide the interesting detail that Picacio actually approached GRRM at the Montreal Worldcon and told him that he’d “love to illustrate one of your works someday.” He did not realize that at that time George and Bantam were searching for an artist for the calendar, and GRRM told him that his work on the Elric books had already caught his eye.
