The Sketchables

Hop on over the Sketchables blog to find out what question this illustration answers!

The Sketchables is a new group blog that we formed and this is out introductory week.  I'm super excited to work with such a talented group of illustrators.  We'll be sharing our sketches, sketches from our favorite illustrators, sketchy tid-bits, interviews and more. 

The Sketchables include Priscilla Burris, Diandra Mae, Kelly Light, Joy Steuerwald and myself.

Busy, Busy!

Three little beachcombers doing exactly what I'd like to be doing at this moment!

I had to take a little blogging break while I prepared for a national bead show.  It was fun, but now it's time to switch gears and get a new round of postcards out the door and work on finding an agent.

I also have a slew of SCBWI events coming up in the next few months.

I will be attending the Golden Kite Exhibit and SCBWI events next month.  Mid-July I will be leading a roundtable discussion on marketing at our July SCBWI meeting. At the end of July I'll be heading to LA for the national conference with my peep Kelly! In September I will be hosting an Editor's Day here in San Antonio for our chapter.  I will also be presenting a breakout session on Creating a Winning Portfolio at that event. 

And in between all that I have two dummy books to finish with samples.  So you should be hearing quite a bit from me over the summer as I work my way through these events!
