This year, we hosted our 2nd annual Breakthrough Contest to find a young talent and help them break into the illustration world. After receiving great portfolios from illustrators all around the world, our judges consisting of art directors, designers, and art buyers evaluated each portfolio.
We now proudly announce the winner to be Max Kostenko of Moscow, Russia. We look forward to bringing him to NYC where we will host a reception and introduce him to our friends as well as award him his prize. For more information about Max, visit his website.
We will be updating our blog regularly with more information about this rising star and his NYC visit, staff picks, runners up, etc, so stay tuned.
