Following a fabulous but exhausting North/Central California SCBWI conference I'm off enjoying the waters in Calistoga where tomorrow, Kristen Fulton and I will be doing the mud baths, jacuzzi towel wrap and massage treatment. Oh yeah!! Kristen came from Florida for the conference and is one of my current students. Watch for her name as she will be very successful and already has agents interested. Another student came from LA as well as a bunch from more local areas. It's all very exciting watching them blossom. All three portfolio winners were all former students, which was tremendously gratifying, especially now as I work on putting together what will be a mind-blowing illustration course for both beginners and professionals. I do love my students very much and feel incredibly lucky to do the work that I do. If you want first dibs on upcoming courses, sign up to the right for the mailing list. Information will be coming soon.
