Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators Conference

Tomorrow I will be attending the SCBWI summer conference in LA. It is a four day conference that will cover many aspects of the children’s literature biz. I am enrolled in the graphic novel class and boy am I looking forward to that. I hope to blog a little during my lunch break but I may not get the time. I will be following tweets from the conference and you can follow my tweets @ ctillustrator.

In prep for my graphic novel class I posted some roughs of two practice stories that have been polished and can now be viewed on my website and click the comics icon. I will announce new additions here but I will post any new comics I create in the next few days on my website.

Alas, my e-store isn’t open yet. I am still working a few kinks out but hope to have it open by the end of August. I should’ve known that I wasn’t going to get it running in under a week. I will certainly announce its grand opening.

I’ve got a new home on the web (! It is still under construction but I wanted to open it to friends and family so you all could “kick the tires” and make sure everything is working properly.

Let me know how it looks on your monitors (Does it fit? Do the colors hurt your eyes?). Is there something that you find annoying with the layout? If the link doesn’t click then it isn’t set up yet.

I am really excited about the store that I am setting up. I expect the store will open by the end of the week with a limited number of items however new items posted all the time. Prints, posters, cards and downloads for mobile devices will be available. I will be using Zen Cart and so customers will be able to use PayPal or credit cards to purchase items from the store.

Happy 4th of July!
