2013 SCBWI Summer Conference

I officially signed up for my very first big SCBWI(Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators) Conference this August in Los Angeles!

I'm looking forward to getting some insight from some very interesting speakers, especially multiple Caldecott winning author and illustrator David Wiesner. 

I'm also really excited to meet my rep Mela Bolinao (MB Artists) in person for the first time as well. She was invited to be part of the faculty and looks like she will be giving a workshop.

If anyone has been to one of these, I'd love to hear what they thought of their experience. I'm not exactly sure what to expect be I'm thinking it will be fun and exciting! But more importantly productive!

Creature Comforts

I recently saw the animated film The Croods. It was a pretty entertaining movie and the production was done well. What really stood out were all the creatures the design team developed for the project. And so, I was inspired to come up with some creatures of my own. Fun stuff!
