Many of our friends and artists (including Niklas Asker from Sweden, Goni Montes from Atlanta, Guy Stauber from England, James Bennett, Dongyun Lee, Rudy Gutierrez, David Palumbo, and Chase Stone) joined us for an office reception where we presented him with his award and got to showcase his work. Also joining us was the third place winner Tanner Griepentrog from San Francisco, who is well on his way to a successful career in illustration. Everyone agreed that their portfolios were overwhelmingly good. We're all looking forward to seeing how their careers evolve.
