It took a little inner strength to go to an SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) conference in Charlotte, N.C. alone. I would be attending an intensive class by myself. Bearing my portfolio and lots of postcards and business cards I went in. The illustrator of the American Harry Potter series was our first speaker, Mary Grand-Pre. The executive art director, Isabel Warren Lynch, from Random House Children’s Books concluded the intensive. So much inspiring art and experience was shared in those hours.
We had an assignment to prepare before the class. A sequence of 8 or more pages, maximum 3 colors and 20 words.
Stay tuned to see what happens to my little character.
