SCBWI Conferece Follow Up
The SCBWI was amazing! I met so many wonderful illustrators that inspired me to come back to the table and start working on new pieces. I want to share with you a few of their websites, thank them for their valuable feedback and support in this crazy journey of becoming a full-time illustrator. Angela Padron, Jill Dana Siegel, Kathy Blackmore, Marjorie Shropshire, Wilson Williams and our instructors: Janeen Mason and special guest: Henry Cole. I am grateful for the one-on-one critique that I had with Henry, for his suggestions, his constructive criticism and helping me focus on my objectives moving forward.
Things that I gained from this conference:
Remember that is always about the reader
Sketch! Sketch! Sketch!
Portfolio pieces are about "QUALITY NOT QUANTITY"
