NJSCBWI Illustrator’s Day

Cost: $198 – Includes:  Full Day Workshop, Continential Breakfast, lunch, portfolio critique.

OPTIONAL: $50 for one-on-one consultation with Artist Agent – Christina Tugeau. 

Space is limited. 

How it works:

Attendees are split into two groups of ten.  Both groups receive text from an assortment of picture books.   Each attendee will choose text for a double spread and create a sketch to go with the text.  These get sent into Donna or EB.  They critique and give suggestions on how to improve.  This feedback is sent back to each attendee, so they can re-work their drawing and finish the full color artwork for their double spread.  The final art is displayed on the day of the workshop, along with the original first sketch.  Both groups spend the morning discussing each illustrator’s finished art.   Portfolio critiques will be scheduled throughout the afternoon.  If you have EB in the morning, then you will have your portfolio critique with Donna in the afternoon or vice-versa .

After lunch, Chris Tugeau will discuss THE BIZ OF THE BIZ – repping, contract questions, finding work , keeping records, etc. and have an extensive Q&A.  Leeza Hernadez will conduct a hands-on workshop for illustrators and the day will end with a final Q&A with EB and Donna.

Attendees can choose to pay an additional $50 to meet with Chris Tugeau for a one-on-one consultation.
