I just participated in a wonderful SCBWI webinar today where an Art Director talked about portfolios. If you’re a SCBWI member, I hope you take advantage of every webinar you find out about. They’re super cheap and I’ve found them to be incredibly informational, even on topics I think I’ve already heard everything there is […]
Merry Christmas! I swear I didn’t plan this, but I have finished my Holidoodle just in time! Granted it’s two days late, but it took a bit longer to finish. And I wanted to finish it well.
Last weekend was my local SCBWI retreat at which there was also an Illustrator’s Intensive. This was why I was creating a couple of pieces to bring with me (and give away here). I thought I would share a little bit about the assignment, what I learned, and give some insight into my process as […]
