And I'm off!!

I can't believe how fast January came! The New York City National Children's Book conference is this weekend and I fly out tomorrow. yay! I'm looking foward to hearing the speakers and learning more about the industry. Plus the added bonus, art directors will get to my work! Also our Aunt Janet and Uncle Tom were nice enough to let me stay with them so I'll get to visit and see the city. I just love New York! Wish me luck!

The hula hooper

Back in September I went to the Northeast Ohio SCBWI conference and I had the pleasure to meet my new friend Dawn, an author from Indy. While we were chatting she told me all about her childhood and early adult years as a hooper. I didn't realize that there are actually professional hula hoopers out there until this conversation. Anyways, this black and white illustration was inspired by Dawn!
