Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators Mid Year Workshop

Last Month I attended the SCBWI Mid-year workshop at Walt Disney Coronado Resort. Had a fantastic  time I was able to meet many wonderful Illustrators and Authors that are passionate about children's books! Made sure to take the Digital Workshop Track in which four speakers discussed the process of making  picture book apps and e-Books. After the workshops Lucy Cummins was one of the awesome Art Directors critiquing my portfolio.  She suggested I start a Daily sketch project on my blog which is one of her many excellent Ideas! Had a wonderful time cant wait to go to my next conference!!

So my daily sketches are going to be of the girls of my life,  Las Muñecas..

The Candileja

La Candileja is said to be the spirit of a vicious old woman, who was in charge of her grandchildren but neglected to teach then any moral principles, so they grew up as murderers and thieves. In the afterlife she was damned to travel around the world surrounded by flames.
