Off to L.A...

This morning I put the finishing touches on a new portfolio and tomorrow I head to L.A. for the SCBWI Summer Conference.  I hope to see you there!! :)

I long to go sit in a cool, dark movie theater and eat some popcorn.  But, instead I'll be drawing, painting, putting together a book dummy, and working on my portfolio for the SCBWI Summer Conference.  The movies will have to wait.

If you're heading to the conference, too, you might like this blog post from Author/Illustrator, Debbie Ohi, on tips for SCBWI conference goers.

Also, last week I was featured on Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast and today I have a blog post about my childhood inspirations over on the KidLit Artists blog.  Maybe you'd like to take a look. 

And here's an article by one of my favorite illustrators, Jon Klassen, about his hero, William Steig. 

And, just one more thing...  I recently fell wildly in love with the work of Julia Sarda.  I think you'll like it, too.
