WILLIAM DAVID BROWN AWARD FOR MOST IMPROVED IN ILLUSTRATION
Allison Warren is an illustrator who enjoys creating graphic novels and making stories, worlds, and characters. She is about to graduate from Moore College of Art & Design with a BFA in Illustration. She has an associate degree in Illustration from Delaware College of Art and Design. Warren’s first graphic novel, Back to Life, presents a dystopian future that challenges the moral philosophies of structure and power, and a sequel is planned. Warren has already started her next graphic novel: a slice-of-life, comedic romance between a big city writer and a coastal surfer boy. Now, she works in her studio in Marlton, New Jersey with her cat, Spooky.
In a world stricken by disease, one society remained sheltered in a dome. After being taken away from his home, Dylan finds himself in a government facility. He and his sister uncover the dark secrets of the corrupt dictatorship. What secrets does this facility really hold? Will Dylan be able to expose the truth or will the cruelty continue?

She could not be any prouder.
