I only recently joined SCBWI for the first time and I’ve found their website really hard to navigate - I already had to email them to find the list of local contacts that was described as being on a page that didn’t exist.
The monthly prompt thing had me confused too - I was looking for previous galleries but have had no luck so far...
Also their Instagram post says to just tweet or IG your entry with the hashtag but then the page on their website says that does not count as entering and is just an extra for fun thing. According to their page you do have to be an active member and only email submissions are counted.
Reminds me of Mattias Adolfsson. Crazy how he just draws overlapping busy scenes with seemingly no planning!
I am addicted to that 6b pencil brush!
@Laurel-Aylesworth SVS has a writing picture books course. I've been meaning to find the time to take it for a while!
As for everyone, this month is super crazy so I'm happy I managed to spend a few hours this morning creating this for the prompt. Hopefully, I'll find time to catch up with forum posts and look through all the other entries soon!
I hope you're all safe and taking care of yourselves
Just a note to say that if anyone has been thinking of trying affinity, now is a good time. They're offering 3 months free trial and 50% off if you decide to buy:
Ok, here are my vehicles especially for Winnie the Pooh. High form for him seemed like it should be simple, naive, childlike, and maybe related to honey. Low form is high tech, industrial, flashy and fast. Low and high function was much harder to think about. A paper boat is exactly the sort of thing I can imagine him trying to use. But is it low function because it will get soggy and sink or high function because it will set the perfect conditions for a Winnie the Pooh story? So sort of high function in terms of appropriate storytelling. Probably I’m just over thinking it!
@SunnySommerset he's a spiny tailed monitor lizard. He was lovely and kept wandering over to see what we were doing we also drew a python called Colin.
I wrote up the day in a blog post if you want to see more photos / drawings:
