It’s been quite some time since I last posted, I feel like. Things are slowly progressing in regards to my art. The SCBWI Summer Conference in L.A. is just over a month away at this point. I’m very excited, and just a bit nervous. A few of my friends from #kidlitart chat are going to be there, so I’m hoping I will get to meet some people in person!
I bought a portfolio for the portfolio showcase, but I still need to get my pieces printed and mounted so I can put them in the portfolio. I ended up going with an 11″ x 14″ black fixed-page portfolio with 12 sleeves. I will upgrade to the screw post version I was hoping for at some point, but with where I’m at right now, I went with something more affordable that is still very professional looking. Plus, the 12 sleeves are just the number I was shooting for when it came to filling my portfolio, so not being able to add or subtract pages isn’t a bad thing in this case.
This week is my last week at my current job! Next week, I start as a Prepress Specialist at a local label printing company. I’m looking forward to it for many reasons, with the foremost reason on my mind being the extreme cut my commute will take. Yay for less of my life spent in a car!
