It’s been quite a busy weekend full of baptisms and weddings and creative events. So exhausted, but it was all worth it.
This past Saturday we attended the Carousel for Kids event at Dixon Place (NYC) which was hosted by R. Sikoryak and Neil Numberman. It’s a yearly event where these wonderful writers and illustrators read their zany comics and other creations to kids of all ages! It was pretty entertaining!
The best part was when they picked some kids in the audience to help them read their comics. And most of the kids were so gung-ho about volunteering.
This past Sunday I attended my first ever CBIG portfolio review where we were all given the opportunity to speak with 2 editors or art directors of our choice and share our work with them one on one. What a great experience!
An editor from Penguin Group suggested I venture into drawing for older kids and experiment more with lettering. It’s actually something I’d been meaning to explore a bit more so you might be seeing more tweens and tween themed illustrations in the coming months.
My favorite part of the afternoon was seeing other peoples work and book dummies. It was all so inspiring. Here’s hoping I get inspired enough to write a story myself soon!
Oh and don’t forget to check out the December issue of Highlights for Children to find this little dittie I did over the summer!
Wishing you all a Happy & Creative Week!!
