This past weekend was the Mid-Atlantic SCBWI Conference in DC. It was my first conference ever! It was so much fun and it was great to see one of my professors and some of my friends from Hollins. I took tons of notes and doodled a whole bunch (the doodle above is of the keynote speakers Judith Viorst and Kwame Alexander - they were hilarious to listen to and so inspiring!). Of course, I now have a nice little list of things I need to draw to spruce up my portfolio, so I'll be a busy bee for the next couple of weeks.
