2013 SCBWI Southern Breeze Illustrators' Day
Today I'm off to the Century Marriott Hotel to host our 2013 SCBWI Southern Breeze Illustrators' Day! (I'm the Illustrator Coordinator for our Southern Breeze SCBWI region.) This is the first year we will be coinciding with Springmingle, our weekend-long regional conference. So, needless to say, it's going to be a crazy, but FUN, weekend!
I'm excited about our line-up: Chad Beckerman, Creative Director at Abrams Books for Young Readers and Amulet; Dianne Hess, Executive Editor at Scholastic and Blue Sky Press; Will Terry, illustrator and innovator; and Mark Braught, illustrator and mentor. CLICK HERE to see the entire line-up and schedule.
Even better - this year we're hosting an ILlustrators' Day Cocktail Party to take place at the end of our sessions - hosted by Binders Art Supply! Local Art Directors are welcome to stop by to view our attendee portfolios. (Seriously, if you'd like an invite, just email me at elizabeth at dulemba dot com.) We're still building our invite list, so it will be small this year, but I think this will catch on quickly.
We also got some help this year from students at SCAD Atlanta who did our awesome signage. How sweet are these?
Be looking for a wrap-up of the event after I come up for air!
