You must live in California....me,too! I live in the North Bay Area of San Francisco!

Hello! I'm new to the forum too. I will be at Spring Spirit. I actually won the logo contest for it! I'm still a newbie illustrator and trying to pull together my first portfolio to show (it's my first SCBWI conference too).
I am looking forward to meeting everyone and learn more about the business of Children's Books.
@Jessica-Mercado Congrats in the win! That’s great. What lectures are you signed up for, if you don’t mind sharing?
@arent-draper I found this DIY Portfolio on Pinterest. This is the best one I found to help me make my own portfolios to take to the conference. Looks pretty simple. I thought I’d share in case you wanted to make your own.
I saw your interview on Arree's SA post...and I love your Spring Spirit Illustration! You and Lisa Burvant are miles ahead of me when it comes to Children's Books (I have experience in Graphic Design but its only been in the last year that I am concentrating on PB's and I have a lot to learn)
I went to the conference last year for the first time and it really is a great! I would love it if we could all sit together at the same table.
Thank you so much....I will make one! Looks great.
I just messaged Jessica-Mercado and suggested we all sit together at the same table at the Conference.
@arent-draper sounds great!
