This past weekend I attended the New England SCBWI conference in Nashua, NH (SCBWI is the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators).
This illustration was my entry for the weekend's poster showcase. The theme of the showcase was "Take Flight" and I walked away with the honorable mention in the published category!
This annual conference features dozens of workshops presented by professionals in the children's publishing market (including writers, illustrators, art directors, and editors). My friend Teri Weidner gave a great workshop entitled Giving Visual Punch to Your Picture Book. The weekend was educational, fun and exhausting!
