Get To Work



I'm really excited to be attending the SCBWI New York Winter Conference in late February, and have additionally signed up for the Illustrator Intensive Day.  This year, there is an assignment for it and because of my schedule I am working on it a bit early to get it done.  During my recent courses I found that I work really well on a strict, structured deadline so that is what I gave myself.  Anyway, just an update here to say I've been hard at work on the assignment, which is to illustrate a scene from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.  

Can't wait to share more!
