Young Guns 13 WINNERS

2015: This is remembered as being the "tough" year; while the number of submissions remained high, the jury was very unforgiving when it came to work that displayed the slightest hint of mediocrity They held up every entry to the highest possible standards, and in the end, only nineteen Young Guns 13 winners were selected — the smallest list in Young Guns history.

The Young Guns 13 Cube, designed by YG10 winners Dark Igloo alongside design studio Chen&Kai, is comprised of personal and professional objects acquired from all twelve previous Young Guns classes, broken down and embedded into a truly individual trophy. When the winners received their hard-earned honors on September 17, 2015, they weren't just making history, they were taking home a piece of it too.


Tom C J Brown

Holbrooks / Blacklist

Tom Brown is a British; Brooklyn based Director, Designer, and Illustrator, who works closely with his animation wife Daniel Gray under the name of Holbrooks. Their work is a Trojan horse of aesthetic beauty and visual stimulation that draws the audience into the obscure and imagined world of their narratives. Ranging from the banal and honest to the erotic and disturbing, Tom’s illustration and writing is personal and self-referential, drawing on the wealth of his real life experiences as an outsider and loner in New York. His films have been exhibited at over 100 international film and animation festivals; winning prizes at Sundance, SXSW, Annecy International Animation Festival, NY Shorts Fest, Amsterdam Film Festival, Ottawa, and more. Holbrooks is represented by Blacklist in New York, where Tom now works in-house. His commercial work includes commissions for Red Cross, Coca-Cola, Google, Nike, UNICEF, Rdio, and Sesame Street.
