Anna Bond: The Rifle lines up her shot

March is ADC Young Guns Month here on the ADC Blog! As we head towards the deadline for Young Guns 13 entries, we will be featuring the works and thoughts of Young Guns 12, the latest class to join the exclusive club of young creative professionals. We will also be sharing the thoughts of the judges who voted them in. This way, you’ll have some idea of what it takes to become a Young Gun — and the answers just might surprise you.

“I remember having everything ready to submit the year before and at the last minute I decided not to enter because I felt like I just wasn’t there yet.”

Some Young Guns winners enter multiple time before finally making it, while others enter on a whim and get in on their first try. Our next featured YG12 winner doesn’t fall in either camp. Instead, the illustrator and founder of the Rifle Paper Co. waited years before she felt she was ready to join the ranks . The wait paid off; with the judges proud to have her in the exclusive club of creatives.

Check out Anna’s entire interview on the ADC Blog.
