This piece won Honorable Mention at the #NJSCBWI (New Jersey Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) conference this past weekend, and I feel so lucky!
“I will arise and go now” in watercolor, graphite and digital, 11″ x 17.″
Thank you so much to the Jury. Hard work is starting to pay off, and it feels awesome. I had trouble picking myself up off the floor when the venerable David Wiesner, winner of approximately 8,000 #caldecott medals, looked at my name tag and said “Hey, I love your work!” WHAAAT?!
An amazing conference. I look forward to attending again next year.
Here are some process photos.
