The week has finally arrived! In just two days time, I will be westward bound for my very first Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators summer conference in Los Angeles! Things are coming together, and I can hardly wait to arrive! I must be excited, because every sentence prior to this has ended in an exclamation point.
I finally got my portfolio pieces printed. I am not overly pleased with how they turned out, but I am trying to cut myself some slack with this being my first time every assembling this kind of portfolio. I apparently need to find a better place to print, and learn to adjust my colors for printing. Some of my work turned out much darker than expected, and you lose the detail and hard work I put in. It will do for now, I guess, and I’ll make sure it’s better next time.
The Author and Illustrator’s Ball is Saturday night, and the theme is to dress in a way that pays homage to your favorite author or illustrator. I had several good contenders, but wasn’t happy with my costume options for most of them. I am quite pleased with my choice in the end. Pics to come later! I ordered my stuff I would need last night and it should arrive tomorrow.
I’m off to work! Work usually goes by fast, but this week is crawling due to my anticipation of Thursday.
Have a good week, everyone!
