Generation Icarus - South Winners

The Generation Icarus competition was for writers and illustrator fans of the Air Born YA SciFi series. People entered from all around the world and you could either create a piece of fan-fiction or a drawing related to the story. In the brief we got a snippet of the story to get a basic idea and a summary. I chose to just do a drawing because that is more fun for me as I am better at drawing than writing and I can do it more quickly. The drawing that I did was a young boy with his knees tucked up to his chest and wings on a rocky peak. It was really fun and I think this type of competition is a good idea to do. As the competition winner I get a signed book with a personal letter from the author and my work published in it. It was really exciting to win! (Annabela Morison)
