Well, I'm getting myself ready to attend the 2017 SCBWI Writers and Illustrators conference in February. I'm also getting kind of excited! Updating my portfolio and decided I needed new business cards as well as promotional postcards to hand out. These are the deigns I finally settled on.
I am booked for the conference, I have my airline reservations, my hotel room is booked as well. Just need to finish up my portfolio layout and figure out what on earth I will wear. I leave next week! Wish me luck!

This was done for the Tomie dePaola contest put on by SCBWI each year. The assignment was to illustrate a childhood memory. I did not win. But I had fun doing this illustration. I'll be honest, I had a wonderful childhood. Every child in the world should be as lucky as I was. Anyway, this is one of my many memories. Reading to my horse Prince. (He had the name before the singer, who recently died) He was a prince of a fellow (the horse, not the singer), if I do say so myself, and he always enjoyed a good story.

I did this piece a little before Christmas for my friends Matt and Janel. My hope was that it would look a bit like their two girls. I think I was successful.
