Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers

I am teaching an intensive 3 day illustration workshop at the Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers Conference in Sandy, UT June 18-20th this year. If you have always wanted to illustrate books but don't know how to start, this is for you. If you are just starting out in the sea of illustrators vying for book jobs, this is for you. I've attended this conference several times in the past as an afternoon presenter. This year I was asked to teach the morning workshop for illustrators.

I've been illustrating books since 1998. I spent the first 10 years of my career working without an agent. I then decided to sign with an agent. I know the pros and cons of both. I don't have any magic success, overnight sensation stories of my own to share. But I can give you the real deal...how most of the illustrators in this market strive hard to make it.  I've learned A LOT in the past 14 years and I hope to share what I've learned with you. If you or someone you know is interested, send a link to this page or the attached flyer on to them.

Hope to see you there!
