SCBWI Carolinas Conference 2007

In September 2007, I went north to Carolina for their SCBWI Fall Conference. Fantastic illustrator and friend, Karen Lee, graciously opened her home to me. It was a wonderful weekend!

Karen and her critique group buddies made me feel very welcomed. Ian Sands, a local artist and teacher presented a very insightful lecture on promoting one’s artwork online. There are so many resources available, and Ian took much of the fear out of venturing into the technical future of self-promotion. There’s Ian in the red shirt.

Karen and her husband Tim are both illustrators. Tim works 100% digitally in varying styles full of color and texture. He even took the time to show me a few things about Photoshop that I was stuck on. There is much to be said of such a generous and creative family. Please be sure to visit their website and blogs to see what new illustrations are being developed!
Thanks again, Karen, for your hospitality.
