Throughout my career, I’ve worn many hats: graphic artist, illustrator, designer, author, cartoonist, and speaker. I now have a new hat: blogger! This past weekend, I served as a blogger for The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) Winter Conference in New York. The experience was exhilarating and fast paced. I had to be alert and on my toes at every second, or chance missing a quotable moment, photo opportunity, or funny comment. I also had the pleasure of attending the pre-conference portfolio showcase and wine and cheese party—which was a who’s-who of children’s literaure authors, illusrators, editors, agents, everyone! Here are a few photos from the event.
