last night, i had the pleasure of attending the 29th annual writers & illustrators of the future awards in los angeles. it was fantastic seeing the stellar line-up of judges, viewing the outstanding portfolios of the illustrators, and watching live performances of the winning stories. i particularly enjoyed the speeches given by leading scientists, j. judson wynne and brett kennedy, regarding current mars explorations.
and it was all for free! =P a brilliant way of spending a sunday evening.
