One: The Utah Watercolor Society Small Works Show is hanging up at the Logan Fine Art Gallery. The opening was last Friday. It is one of the finest small works show the watercolor society has hung. You can see it until the end of July along with some other fine art in Logan.
Two: This is the group of illustrators that attended the illustrator’s mini workshop at the Writers & Illustrators for Young Readers Conference that I taught in Sandy on Tuesday. It was a great group and fun to get to know them and share some ideas with them. We discussed the design behind the story board and character design. There was a lot of creative energy in the room. The conference is open to the public on Thursday June 12th at 2:15 for the plenary session with Cheri Earl “Cold, Hard Readings and Critiques” in the auditorium and then the keynote address will be given by James Dashner “Writing Commercial Fiction” after James there will be a book signing for those who want there books signed by the faculty of the conference.
Three: The published writers and illustrators in Utah were invited to a pot luck get together at the Kings English Book store last night. Since the weather had turned wet and cold and snowy in the mountains the pot luck was moved inside where all authors and illustrators should be, in the middle of some great children’s books. It was great to get to see old friends and meet new ones.
