This weekend is probably going down as one of the best in history for me!
Friday night and all day Saturday, I attended the SCBWI Kick It Up a Notch conference. It was an incredibly inspiring, encouraging, and helpful experience where I was able to meet wonderful people from the industry, including illustration great E.B. Lewis, publishing guru Neal Porter, and agency expert Rubin Pfeffer. The community for this field is really an amazing one. Everybody is so supportive and willing to share their successful tools with one another. As E.B. Lewis said, “I have found my tribe!” And to top it all off, I won the Portfolio Award! I couldn’t believe it. So much unexpected excitement, and such an honor!
As if that wasn’t good enough, on Sunday night Kellan sweetly proposed against the backdrop of a neon Austin skyline. We are officially taking on the world together now as Super Illustration Duo! I know this is a professional blog, so I won’t go into too much detail, but I figured it was relevant since we’re in the same field… or maybe I’m just really excited ;P Either way, there you go!
Three cheers to love and illustration!
