  • My first #SCBWI Award

    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.
