Day 1: Illustrators of the Future arrive!
Luke Eidenschink arrives at the airport and so does Brianne Hills with her mother. They received a warm welcome and were brought straight to the hotel.
Here is from left to right: Jamie Luhn, Oleksandra Barysheva and Evan Jensen.
This is Author Services Inc. in Hollywood, the home of the Writers of the Future Contest and Galaxy Press (publishing house of the Writers & Illustrators of the Future anthology). We are ready for a productive week with the writers and illustrators.
Illustrators are getting checked into the hotel by Joni Labaqui, director of the Illustrators of the Future Contest.
The first meeting takes with the workshop instructor, Ron Lindahn. Ron, who teaches the workshop with his wife Val Lakey-Lindahn (who is missing from the photo) is doing a great job every year with the new illustrators. From left to right: Jamie Luhn, Aaron Anderson, Joshua Stewart, Ron Lindahn, Jason Toth (Galaxy Press), Brianne Hills, Oleksandra Barysheva (she is kind of hidden) and Ryan Behrens.
