Annieo Klaus is a talented young artist from Dakar Academy, Senegal, West Africa. She enjoys fantasy artwork with a hint of the mythic and is a huge fan of fantasy stories. Annieo was also the first submission to the art contest and has been very enthusiastic to see the work of her fellow winners.
Special Runner-Up Prize
One personally-inscribed copy of Luthiel's Song
Tabitha Ann Renaldi
Tabitha is from Marysville, NC. She gains her inspiration for artwork through writing and reading. Her artwork earned a special runner-up prize for being a great example of pixel art, a deceptively difficult kind of illustration done meticulously without the benefit of any special brushes or antialiasing. Tabitha tells us she also enjoys drawing and painting using the traditional pen, paper, paint, etc.. She loves to read, and likes to write (especially poetry) and take photographs with a digital camera. Tabitha is on MySpace at:
