I have decided to add entries regarding my children’s book illustration to my blog because it has been taking up more easel time lately. I am a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators (SCBWI). I got interested in this several years ago and illustrated five books for Shortland Publishing (bought out by McGraw-Hill and moved to New Zealand).
I am waiting to hear about the results of a contest for which I submitted the attached illustration. The prize is a trip to New York for the SCBWI Winter Conference. The entry had to be based on the 1st two paragraphs of the book Heide. Not a very manly subject, but what the hay.
