Good Friends Doing Good Deeds!

Some of my great art school buddies, who are now with Dreamworks, MTV, LucasFilms, Nickelodeon, and Cartoon Network, have organized this awesome auction to benefit art programs in schools. You can place your bids now on some beautiful art or during the showing of The Goonies this Saturday at the Rialto Theater at 7pm in Pasadena! I'm planning on being there and bidding on some waaaay cool art for a great cause!

SCBWI So Cal Illustrator's Day 2008

Along with ultra snazzy illustrators Erin Eitter Kono, Wilson Swain, and Brenda Sexton, I'll be part of the panel "The Real Life of a Working Illustrator" at the Saturday Nov. 8 Illustrator's Day! This year's Illustrator's Day will provide great insight into the business venues for illustrators. Lorena Siminovich will address the opportunities to license your art, while Steve Myhre will talk about the need for illustrations in the educational publishing market. Joann Hill, Creative Director at Clarion Books, will detail the work of art directors and do some live portfolio reviews. The adorable Mary Peterson will show how to put your art online in 20 minutes! So this is an Illustrator's Day that will pay off big time for attendees! We'll see you there!
