Well it is Tuesday, and the 2014 SCBWI Winter Conference came to an end on Sunday.
I'm still tired, and like always not sure how to put into words how I feel about the conference.
I go in with hopes to get a clear idea what I need to do and I leave with more questions, how I break into this market? Is still a mystery all I can say is “Keep at it” and I will.
|that looks like me speaking to Jason|
I met a great group of people who like me are trying to break into this fantastic, frustrating, and challenging market. And hope we stay connected over the years.
One of my high points was a small group review; Arthur Levine critique are small group the subject illustration was “Snow White“ he has a way of saying what he did not like without making it sound like its the end of the world and gave you encouragement as well without putting your artwork down .
So thank you Mr. Levine!
Also I was talking to Tomie dePaola, and Cecilia Yung after their lecture and that was a special moment.
In a couple of days I think I am going to take this sketch and make it into a finished piece of art; I sketched it while someone was not keeping my attention as a keynote speaker (no need to name names). I'll take pictures along the way so I can give a break down how I put it all together.
But for now I am going to rest a bit and see if I can get a better grip on the conference material.
