Web Update & Conference Prep

Finally brought my portfolio site up to date! Feels so good to get that off the list. And here are a few scenes from today, getting ready for the SCBWI-Houston conference.

P1020794 P1020797 P1020800 Walked away from my work table this afternoon without capping a small container of Higgins black ink (barely diluted). Add a windy day and open window, and I've got permanent art on my table where it pooled up under a piece of plexiglass. There's a flash flood warning for tonight; maybe it's a sign. And I will have to start a new practice of reading the ink spills.
