Worth a shot..
I'm moving forward, the potty training book is up in the air now. The next goal is Feb 8-9-10th in NYC. The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators is having their winter conference. I joined the group a few months back in the hopes of making connections and learning more about the world of children's book publishing. I have yet had the time to go to any activity. So, why not dive in head first into the deep end of the talent pool with a portfolio presentation? Uhg. Why do I do these things to myself? I am pumping out some new art. It is becoming clearer to me what I lack in my portfolio, and I am hoping to fill in those holes. More kids. More animals. More interaction between characters, more narrative. I'm working on it. First one is here. It's a vignette, ... I'm working on other illo's with full backgrounds. this was inspired by my friend's daughter, Claire and their Dalmatian Sally. The dog is really a character and the little girl, very funny. So, inspiration all around me. If only time came as freely.
