Artist Gathering 2010!

I have returned from our Artist Gathering organized by my wonderfully talented BFF Dan DiPaolo! We met over the weekend in Milwaukee, WI. It was a weekend full of sharing and laughter! Our incredibly talented group met with Legacy Publishing and Sunset Vista Designs.
Both graciously presented their company info and took the time to meet with each of us individually. From there we all shared our portfolios, family pictures, licensing stories and online trials and tribulations! LOL
It was a weekend I will cherish forever!
Ned Young and I with his amazing children's book "Zoomer". Ned signed it especially for my son Connor. Zoomer's second book will be out spring 2011 and I can't wait for the special Christmas edition coming soon!
Ned has won a prestigious children's book illustration award and has a display in NY!
