First Place

Camille Echeverri

Age 14,

California School of the Arts


Pen, ink, watercolor;

9 x 12 inches

Beautiful. Great composition and details, color and control, use of the various mediums. It’s clean, imaginative, interesting, creative, and humorous. The traveler is ready for a new journey in the woods—or in their own back yard—on a toy rocking horse.

Second Place

Nathaly Hernandez

Age 14, Homeschool

“Your Only Limit is Your Mind”

Watercolor; 22 x 28 inches

Gorgeous technique, layout, and attention to detail. It’s reminiscent of all the places surrounding our space traveler. It’s a great way to see the world and have your imagination run wild.

Third Place

Maxwell Ribaya

Age 14, Pasadena High School

“Break of Dawn”

Pencil, colored pencil, marker, pen; 9 x 12 inches

This piece is striking and expressive—lovely work showing reflection and shadow. The scene of an abyss—as if they’re leaping toward starting a new adventure.
