A few posts ago (like back in November), I posted an illustration I did for the SCBWI-LA Illustrator's Day Contest. I actually ended up getting some accolades for it! It won the Professional's Choice Portfolio Award (as chosen by Abigail Simoun of Tricycle Press) and I tied with Wendy Grieb for the People's Choice Award. Awesome and validating, for sure!
The event was awesome as usual, with a ton of inspiring speakers including designer/art director Rich Deas, illustrator Brian Floca, illustrator Dan Santat, editor Abigail Simoun and agent Jennifer Rofe.
Kudos to Illustrator's Day Coordinator/Producer/Director and ILLUSTRATOR Ken Min for the great day!!! Looking forward to 2011's Illustrator's Day!
