I have amazing news that I can finally share. It’s now official. I was asked to be the SCBWI Illustrator Coordinator for my region (Alaska) and I said yes. AND I’m going to the SCBWI LA conference in July (my first National conference).
AND I’m going to be entering into the Illustrator Portfolio Showcase (another first). EEP!
I figured these steps would all help push me in the right direction, but also challenge me to step it up. Unless I completely freak out and run away into the hills screaming. But no. I don’t see that happening. I’m going to buckle down and work on my illustrations BIG time. I need my portfolio to be up-to-scratch. This is the BIG leagues!
I’ve also decided that I want to share a kid-friendly poem-a-day every day in April. Why? Because it’s something I’m passionate about and enjoy reading. Prepare yourself! =D
