I'm down in Vancouver this week taking a course at UBC called Picture Books: A Marriage of Text and Illustration. The instructor is actually a publisher for Tradewind Books. I am learning a lot about the art (and business) of getting a children's book published. Don't expect one any time soon though as it will most likely take years! At least taking this course is one step up and in the right direction...or so I hope!
I'll be showing some art to published authors and illustrators tomorrow - wish me luck!
