Winning artwork is available on merchandise through Printfection.

First Place

Don Aquillo describes himself as “an avid fan of pop culture and film, a seasoned martial arts instructor and a proud and vigilant advocate of both the visual and performing arts.”   A pre-med student and natural advocate for the sciences and social responsibility, he eventually made the switch to pursue a passion in graphic design and illustration.
