Portfolio Review

I'm busy trying to get enough new images done to bring a portfolio to the CBIG (Children's Book Illustrator's Group) meeting on Sunday. An editor from Knopf will be there and I'm hoping my portfolio will get picked in the lottery for her to review. (Crossing fingers and getting back to work...wait, I can't work with my fingers crossed!)

p.s about the music I'm listening to, whenever I listen to the song Are We The Waiting off of Green Day's American Idiot CD, I think it's about writing and illustrating picture books (especially for those of us who are still unpublished). I know it's not actually about picture books, but it's a cool song, and a few of the lines resonate with me as a kid's book writer and illustrator:

Heads or tails and fairytales in my mind
Are we we are, are we we are the waiting unknown

Update  7-11-05:
My portfolio got reviewed at the CBIG meeting, and the editor liked my new work - yay!!!!

She even wants to see one of my stories when I get the dummy done...it might be a while, but I'm hoping to get it done before I go to LA (I leave Aug. 4th for the SCBWI conference).
