The wonderful photographer, Bo Zaunders: http://www.bozaunders.com took this picture of me at the 21st century Children’s Nonfiction Conference last weekend where I demonstrated how we can promote our books through storytelling .
hey, I’ll even wear a pot on my head to sell a book…
What a great weekend it was! With inspiring workshops, presentations, yummy food and an amazing group of people.
Hats off to sally Issac and Lionel Bender who did a great job organizing the event at Iona College in New Rochelle.
I was honored to receive the 2nd prize at the art show which included some great talents.
Here’s one of the pieces I entered
There were so many incredibly talented illustrators at e NJ SCBWI conference last weekend. Kathy Temean posted all in her very informative blog https://kathytemean.wordpress.com
I was honored to exhibit my own interpretation on the theme “I shall rise and go now…” with all these super great, creative, amazing people.
This weekend, I was treated to the best and most inspiring presentation at the NJ SCBWI summer conference .
The amazing, incredibly talented David Wiesner talked about his art, books and his sources of inspiration. Later that day, I was fortunate to sit in a smaller format where David talked about using references to create his illustrations from building and photographing models for architectural details to sculpting frogs for the frog invasion in Tuesday to following and recording every movement of his cat for Mr. Wuffles!
He even studied lizard’s anatomy for Art & Max
If you ever have a chance to hear David talk, don’t miss it. The man is as incredible as his books.
