NJSCBWI Annual Conference:

I had a great time at the conference June 4-5, and met new and old friends. Attended many workshops, participated in a one on one review, portfolio display and juried art show. The art directors, editors, designers, literary agents, generously shared their knowledge and positive comments!  The faculty and staff made this event a great success. The artwork was amazing! and WOW!!! Totally enjoyed hearing the guest speakers, David Wiesner and Suzy Ismail. 

 The Juried Art Show theme was to illustrate, 
"I will arise and go now," words from William Butler Yeats poem.

FAIRY TALES EXHIBIT

Brooklyn Central Library presents: Fairy Tales
Illustrations by the Childrens Book Illustration Group

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
  


Why did you choose this fairy tale, character or scene to illustrate? I chose to illustrate a tender love scene of Beauty embracing the fallen beast, because  Beauty’s compassion for birds and animals also resonates within my heart.
