It Took a Little

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.

I am standing with Mary Grand-Pre's original drawings for her new book about Kandinsky.

We had an assignment to prepare before the class. A sequence of 8 or more pages, maximum 3 colors and 20 words.
