I am a finalist for the Atlantic Avenue BID Children's Literature Contest. Read my online interview at DNAinfo New York:
Come and hear the winners of the Atlantic Avenue Children's Literature Contest read their original stories along with selections from their favorite picture books. Please RSVP online to reserve a spot at one or more of the readings.
• An illustration I submitted to an SCBWI contest was chosen as a runner-up. The coordinator asked me not to reveal the details until the unveiling–sometime in December. Details to come.
•"The Parade" and "The Heron" were both accepted into the historic Philadelphia Sketch Club's 2014 Works on Paper exhibition. The show will open on Jan 3, 2014. The reception will be on Sunday Jan 5, 2014 2-4 PM.
• SCBWI Eastern PA and NJ Fall Craft Weekends were both very successful for me. From the first, an editor from Boyds Mills Press, Sarah Zhang, expressed interest in working with me on one of my book dummies. From the second, the art director at Penguin, Guiseppe Castellano, gave me ideas on how to take my illustrations to the next level.
