I’ve been working on a few new portfolio pieces to get ready for the SCBWI New York Conference. We can display our portfolios for local editors and art directors. This chick is a part of a larger painting for my portfolio.
In the movie “Miss Potter” about Beatrix Potter who wrote and illustrated “Peter Rabbit”, she says, “We can’t stay home all of our lives. We must present ourselves to the world and think of it as an adventure.” She was talking to her paintings at the time. It’s time to get my portfolio ready to present to the world again but perhaps I will need to chat a bit longer with a few of the illustrations.
