Working on a PB Biography

It helps to read other picture book biographies when writing your own. Especially when they are similar in subject matter but not identical. And this one I am studying is wonderful, I think because the mc is not super well known (at least I think not) but what he did is amazing and has so much kid appeal (which is what matters most).

Am getting there with mine and hope to be done soon.

"You don't give up till you get what you want...and if you don't get what you want, you know you have never given up...which is as good is getting what you want." Quote by unknown artist who never got published :)

This gloomy weather is almost over and I am feeling a bit more charged up and ready to tackle the pb biography again after the great feedback and encouragement I received a few weeks ago at the illustrator mentorship. And to tweak the pig dummy and adjust color issues.

And new samples and a smaller portfolio in the works.

And and and....

perhaps work on an art show

Evolution Resolution for Illustrators

In a few weeks I will be attending the final installment of Evolution Resolution for Illustrators at the Theological Seminary in beautiful Princeton, NJ. Hopefully the weather will cooperate. This event comprises five meetings spread out over one year.  This final meeting is coming up in early March.

The nice thing for me is not only meeting an agent and AD but getting feedback from everyone there.
Two groups get turns with both the AD and agent, as well. We set goals and set out to accomplish them. Mine was finishing a dummy... which I did! I am also bringing new art pieces (hopefully six) and getting dummy feedback. Perhaps even another dummy I've done.

Looking forward to seeing my cohorts!

One good thing about a blizzard

When the weather is dreary
it's time to query!

My feeble attempt at rhyme.................
