The Utah Southern Idaho SCBWI Illustrator’s Conference (The Second Annual)

It is a bit nerve racking to be in charge of an illustrators conference. Getting illustrators into a group is like herding cats. The Utah Southern Idaho Illustrator’s Conference was held Saturday February 25th at the Bountiful Davis Art Center. I thought we had 6 or 8 illustrators signed up but Sydney Hussman the Regional SCBWI Advisor said Don’t worry Sherry we have eleven or twelve signed up. We had a week to go. More and more illustrators started to sign up. Wow, it was going to be a real conference. I headed over to the BDAC Saturday morning. My husband came and helped out with setting up chairs. I said we’ll need about 25 at the most. But what to my wondering eyes should appear but “illustrators” pouring through the door. As I saw them pouring through the door I thought to myself “We are going to need a bigger boat.!” My husband quickly set up more chairs. The bagels and orange came and were devoured. The conference started and life was good. It was a great conference a real bargain for the money and a great opportunity to gain some invaluable information. It was great to present with Will Terry and Anne Bowen. You can find out more about the conference at
