Save the date! Writers & Illustrators of the Future Forum welcomes Illustrators of the Future Coordinating Judge Echo Chernik: Ask Me Anything!

Echo Chernik has more than twenty years of experience as a professional commercial artist in the advertising field, and five years as an instructor of graphics and digital illustration at Pratt Institute, Westchester Community College, Marymount Manhattan and Skidmore CCI. She specializes in art nouveau-influenced poster design, advertisements, package design and book covers.

She is a traditionally trained artist—a graduate of Pratt Institute, summa cm laude (President’s Award for Academic Excellence). A traditional background in art focuses on skills such as drawing and painting as well as perspective and color theory. This allows the artist to translate their concept into whatever media best suits the job—resulting in a very versatile artist, who is not limited by any one medium.

Some of her clients include Miller, Camel, Coors, Nascar, Trek, Celestial Seasonings Teas, Patrick Rothfuss, Arlo Guthrie, Dave Matthews, The Shiekh of Dubai, Random House, Penguin, Disney, Mattel, Sears, Publix Supermarkets, The Bellagio Resort, The El Conquistador Resort, the US Postal Service, The City of Tokyo, The City of New Orleans, The US Virgin Islands Tourism, The City of Chicago, Hasbro, Catalyst Game Labs, Langnese, Lerche and many others.

Chernik is currently working out of the studio in Sammamish. When not illustrating, she also enjoys kickboxing, target shooting, volunteering in the community, baking and outings with her daughters.

She has been an Illustrators of the Future judge since 2016.

Two contests that changed the future of science fiction and fantasy: L. Ron Hubbard presents Writers of the Future and Illustrators of the Future. Each year, twelve writers and twelve illustrators are selected by a panel of the biggest-name authors and the biggest-name artists in the field. They will be the stars of tomorrow.

Our Story

"A culture is as rich and as capable of surviving as it has imaginative artists. The artist is looked upon to start things. The artist injects the spirit of life into a culture. And through his creative endeavors, the writer works continually to give tomorrow a new form. "In these modern times, there are many communication lines for works of art. Because a few works of art can be shown so easilly to so many, there may even be fewer artists. The competition is very keen and even dagger sharp. "It is with this in mind that I initiated a means for new and budding writers to have a chance for their creative efforts to be seen and acknowledged." --L. Ron Hubbard Introduction L.

Writers of the Future, Volume 36: This volume had a few stories I really enjoyed, especially Foundations by Michael Gardner, and Yellow and Pink by Leah Ning. The collection leans more in the Science Fiction direction, where I'm more of a Fantasy fan, (which is just an observation). Other stories I quite liked are The Trade by C. Winspear, Catching My Death by J.L. George, and Stolen Sky by Storm Humbert. For fans of Katherine Kurtz's Deryni series, there is a background story from the point of view of a couple of minor characters during a major event. I also liked the essay on Collaboration from Sean Williams; I was not expecting the added bonus of some learning in there! All in all, this is a solid collection of stories, bound to contain something for everyone.
I got my hands on an early review copy of the upcoming Writers of the Future. I have read the first two stories and am about to start the third. Can. Not. Put. The. Book. Down! A perfect antidote to all of the craziness flying around at the moment! Here is the pre-order so you can reserve your copy:
