I’d drawn this over a week ago (the further adventures of Mac…) but put off posting since I felt I had a poem in me that goes with it. I never did get around to writing the poem down and finally told myself, “nobody cares about your stupid poem but you aren’t posting drawings daily like you said you would.”
Another drawing exercise from @KellyLight’s terrific workshop at NESCBWI…drawn from imagination.
I’m channeling my favorite P.D. Eastman book, “Are You My Mother?” here. Now, before my awesome critique group buddies reprimand me for not working hard on my young adult novel that won at the #NESCBWI17 Pitchapalooza, I want to clarify that I did this drawing before I left for the conference so I’m not spending time drawing…just spending time POSTING drawings. I love my critique group buddies!
This was the art I did for the #NESCBWI17 conference Illustration assignment.
I mounted a photocopy of this on foam board as instructed for displaying there and I had no intention of lugging the copy home with me so I tossed it in the trash when the judging was done. Another attendee walked by and asked if she could take it. Of course I gave it to her. I may not have won the contest but I think mine was the only piece that is now adorning the wall of an elementary school in New England and that is even better, IMO!
