Writers of the Future Workshop Week and Gala, Part 2

Here’s the link to Part 1 if you missed it. And jumping right into part 2: Once we turned in our twenty-four hour stories, we got to have some fun (not that whipping out a story, isn’t fun).  We formally met our illustrators and saw their work for the first time. Down stairs in theContinue reading “Writers of the Future Workshop Week and Gala, Part 2”

Writers of the Future Workshop Week and Gala, Part 1

I Have Work! (or, Spotlighting Differences Between Writers and Illustrators)

I have been commissioned to illustrate a story in an upcoming semi-pro anthology.  I won’t give any details at the moment, since I haven’t signed a contract yet, but I’m already through the concept art stage, have refined my line art, and any minute now should be starting on my shading. As I said, it’sContinue reading “I Have Work! (or, Spotlighting Differences Between Writers and Illustrators)”
