The SCBWI Board of Advisors has a terrific Illustrator Committee whose mission "is to be a source of challenge, encouragement and inspiration for our illustrator membership," says Priscilla Burris, U.S. Illustrator Coordinator for SCBWI.
To move forward with that mission, the committee, which, in addition to Priscilla, includes Cecilia Yung, Pat Cummings, David Diaz, Bridget Srevens-Marzo and John Shelley, is starting a blog especially for SCBWI member illustrators.
The SCBWI Board Illustrator Committee Blog will offer an outlet on the SCBWI website for the committee members to share, educate, and communicate with illustrator members. "Along with our ongoing responsibilities strategically planning events nationally and internationally for our illustrator membership, this blog serves as an extension of what the SCBWI Board of Advisors Illustrator Committee strives to provide--a place to share and communicate, challenge, inspire and instruct our illustrator and author/illustrator members," says Priscilla.
"We look forward to sharing insights, technique talks, portfolio suggestions, and an array of issues and topics of specific interest for illustrators and author/illustrators."
The blog will kick off soon in the Illustrators Corner area of the SCBWI site. I'll post and tweet a link as soon as it gets going.
