To those who haven’t heard: to my utter astonishment, I won two awards at the 2010 SCBWI Illustrator Portfolio Showcase. I entered the Showcase at the last minute and only because an illustrator friend urged me; I usually focus on the tracks for writers. I’ve posted photos of my portfolio on Facebook, if you’re curious.
Lesson I learned from this past week: Don’t let yourself get into a career rut. Be open to new opportunities.
p.s. Why yes, the book in the cartoon -is- THE LAST WILL OF MOIRA LEAHY by Therese Walsh. :-)
