Illustration Friday: Resolve



I am glad this topic came up for Illustration Friday as I have been thinking about my goals for 2009. This year I resolve to:

1. Become a member of SCBWI

2. Join an online critique group

3. Increase my promotions for the year

The Hallmark contest as really motivated me to work hard to have more of my work published in 2009. I am excited for all of the possibilities this new year will bring.

Steffanie, these little guys are way to much fun, would make a great card for sure. Check out www.wetcanvas.com for an on line critique group. They have two different types of critique, one for the oohs and ahs and one for the truth of what needs fixing. Best of luck in 2009 ~pamela

I love penguins - how adorable!
I joined SCBWI a number of years ago, and I've been going to all the regional conferences within 6 hours driving of me that have an Art Director giving portfolio critiques. That has been the best thing for improving my portfolio! Our Indiana SCBWI is in the process of planning a picture book conference in Oct '09 in Indianapolis with portfolio critiques by an Art Director. You're welcome to come. I'm sure MI will have events too.

How deLIGHTful! These penguins sure know how to have fun. Really adorable, and I like the light trees in the background, too.

Good luck with your resolutions. I'll be cheering you on!
