SCBWI Featured Artist

I just found out I was selected as the latest "Featured Artist" on SCBWI website. For those not in the biz, the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators is a professional guild for writers and illustrators. An international organization, it has more than 19,000 members worldwide, making it the largest children's writing organization in the world. And for those in the biz, you know! It's the freekin’* SCBWI!! And my work is on the welcome page! What perfect timing. I just sent out art samples to publishers and am preparing a mailing to agents. I'm on cloud nine!

*If my kids read this, sorry. I just couldn’t think of any word that said it better than this.

Congratulations, Gail! I keep checking the page too because I LOVE the fish bowl image. This may sound weird, but the detail in the girl's hair has me hypnotized...

Congratulations, Gail! I haven't visited the SCBWI website in some time. I'll have to go have a look/see.
