I was fortunate to meet Illustrator of the Future winner Lucas Durham at the American Library Association Annual Conference in Chicago this past weekend. Lucas won for his illustration that accompanies author Andrea Stewart’s story “Dreameater.” The story and artwork appear in Writers of the Future Volume XXIX which I will review in full soon.
They were lined up for hours and Lucas must have a sore hand from all the autographs I saw him sign. The line seemed endless. He’s a gentleman and a real pleasure to talk with.
