The honor was announced in conjunction with the release of 3×3’s Annual No. 17. The juried publication features hundreds of pieces by professional and student illustrators, graphic designers, art directors and editors, in categories ranging from advertising and animation to comics, children’s books, packaging and posters.

“Most students are not primarily looking for data and information, but mentorship and a relationship with a credible role model,” Hendrix told 3×3. “We often feel like we have a duty to provide ‘answers’ to our students, but if you answer their questions with a question back to them, and interrogate not just what they made but how they made it, and finally why they made it, self-discovery will follow.”
