So I'm leaving for my first SCBWI regional conference, and BOY! am I nervous! I'm taking an Illustration intensive early in the morning and have to bring real live art supplies and paint in person... I haven't done that in so long. I am excited, but scared that I won't remember how to put brush to paper (or masonite) and mixing colors is a long past memory. I won't know what to do without my Wacom tablet and that is probably a great thing. My creative brain needs stretching and expanding. I am looking for growth here. Also on the schedule is a portfolio review with an Art Director. EXCITING STUFF! I'll update when I can. I sure am going to miss my dudes, though. I set up my own Skype account so I can call them from my iPad.
Wish me luck casting off my introverted ways in a sea of new people!
