Winner of a Hugo Award
Barr was the winner of the 1968 Best Artist Hugo.
From the awards speech:
[HARLAN ELLISON]: The nominees this year are: George Barr, (The little green dragon) Johnny Chambers, Steve Stiles, Arthur Thomson (better known as ATom), Bjo Trimble.
Dum de dum. I didn’t bring the suspense tape this year. The reaction last year was a riot. The winner this year is George Barr. Accepting for George Barr will be Bjo Trimble. That takes guts. She’s got a great looking couple of babies. One of them bit me.[BJO TRIMBLE]: George very modestly wrote me, after I asked him what he would do in case he won a Hugo. He said, “First I’m going to faint, then on the very off chance that all of those people out there actually think I’m a good enough artist to win a Hugo, I want you to go up and pick it up, because you look better up there than I do anyway.” I don’t quite agree with that. George is one of the most wonderful people I know. He is very, very shy. I wish he could be up here and see how many people think he’s really great. Thank you.
