As one of the Illustrators of the Future 2021 winners, I had the honor to illustrate one of the winning stories. This is the final illustration and my entry for the Grand Prize.
The squid is my brother by Mike Jack Stoumbos is a science fiction story like I had never read before and a real challenge to illustrate.
This illustration is published in the anthology Writers of the Future Volume 38, officially released on June 28, 2022. You can purchase it from Amazon (affiliate link).
