I had a wonderful time at the SCBWI Los Angeles' Illustrator's Day! The speakers were all inspiring and I learned so much about the children's publishing industry, as well as gallery shows and greeting cards (things which interest me as well). Here's a photo of the three portfolio winners and three illustration contest winners. My portfolio won the "People's Choice" award! (I'm the second from the left) Congratulations to the other winners and thank you to everyone who voted for my work, I am honored to have been chosen!
And now for some new work: babies and toddlers! I've been focusing on drawing small children and achieving a high level of cuteness. What do you think?
I think they are totally cute.
