The Squid is My Brother

After being one of the 2021 Illustrators of the Future winners, each of us had to illustrate one of the winning 2021 Writers of the Future stories. These illustrations would be our Grand Prize entry. I was assigned a story titled The Squid is My Brother, a science-fiction story like I had never read before, written by Mike Jack Stoumbos. It was daunting to venture a bit out of my comfort zone for such an important illustration, but despite my fears, I enjoyed it a lot.

This illustration is published in the anthology Writers of the Future Volume 38, officially released on June 28, 2022.
