Votes have been cast by you all out there, and the winner of the Young Graphic Artist competition has been decided as…..
Sakura – who wins the MacBook Air and Adobe Creative suite.
However, there were so many fantastic entries that we have also decided to award runners up prizes to the next two illustrations with the highest votes. We were so impressed by the graphic strip from cassidy and the image of Adam by cconspirators that, along with Sakura's winning entry, all of the top three will be printed in the next Death & Co book instalment out next February!
The two runners up will also win a signed, dedicated copy of the Death & Co books one & two. Hot Key Books are also considering the top three voted winners to work with them on commissions around the series of books going forward!
Hot Key Books say:
"We have been overwhelmed by the quality of the entries to the Young Graphic Artist competition – it has been fantastic to see so many talented young artists bringing Death & Co. to life. We can't wait to work more with them in the future! Watch this space."
DJ McCune says:
"Thank you so much to everyone who entered the competition - I know how much courage it takes to put your work out there for the world to see. We've seen some seriously talented artists with really distinctive styles. As a writer I have a picture in my head of the characters and scenes but it's such a thrill to see how other people are imagining them. Can't wait to see the published illustrations in my next book!"
Well done to all who entered!
