..and OFF I GO!

The day is finally here, when I leave for the so awaited SCBWI Regional Conference to be held in Miami. I will post about the conference next week after the holiday. Thanks for all your kind comments and good luck wishes. They really mean a lot to me. 

I don't have time to participate in illustration friday this week, but I decided to post an oldie. This is a very old illustration, or I should say color study. I could not find the final piece. I did this back in college when I took editorial illustration classes. Sometimes I look through my old stuff to see how I've evolved, yet still remain the same.

Originally, I thought the image did not apply to IF's theme, but then I looked up the definition of 'pale' and it read: "a space or field having bounds". Does a checkerboard have bounds? I would think so, but you be the judge! 

Have a great weekend!

I am so very happy for you! I can't wait to hear what they think. I hope you get a lot out of every aspect of the conference and leave very inspired. You are an inspiration to me!

I really like the illustration though pale is not quite the first word it strikes in my head.

What a cool illustration! Really great perspective, and the ring on his finger kind of makes his hand look like a giant, strange bird, too.

Oh, I hope you're having such a wonderful time at the conference! Can't wait to hear all about it.
