Okay, so I have been consumed with writing a picture book and I have neglected my blog. Sorry folks. Days are just running into each other. I am currently illustrating 2 books for authors and my brain is on overload. I found a new love for writing and I am really taking the time to learn all I can. It is amazing how much thought goes into one. And revising and revising! I am reading every book I can and I am just now in the last week of a 5 week Web Course. Phew! all in one breath!
Children's Book Academy Craft and Business of Writing Children's Picture Books e-course! Please check it out the website. www.childrensbookacademy.com
Each day is jam packed with so much information and everyone is so wonderful and supportive. For an illustrator you get to see the other side for a change.
This course was given by Mira Reisberg. She did have other wonderful people who helped out: Sudipta Bardan-Quallen and Mandy Yates.
So to take a break and get back to my own self I did a small sketch. I will always fall back to illustrating.:) And hope that someday I will accomplish having my own book in hand to share with the world. One that I write and illustrate.
And, when this course ends I do hope that I will find others who would like to start a writing critique group. If anyone has a group that is open to a novice :) illustrator/writer and willing to deal with maybe some whining and her pulling her hair out. I would love to hear from you! ha ha
Have a great weekend all! I would love to catch up and hear from you. If you stop by leave me a comment and say hi! :)
