Calling all SCBWI Illustrators!

The winner of this weeks Book Give-Away for THE JUMBIES is Leslie Zampettis. Congratulations Leslie! Please send your address so Tracey can send you your prize.

Calling all SCBWI Illustrators!


The SCBWI is excited to announce a great new feature for our illustrator members, Draw This!: a monthly art prompt that will be part of the new SCBWI Insider. Members will have the opportunity each month to show their artwork in the online gallery and two pieces will be featured in the email itself. The online gallery will be open to public viewing, so agents, art directors and editors have yet another way of finding our illustrators.

The June 2015 Draw This! prompt word is: Bounce

Deadline for the June Draw This! is May 25

Tweet, Facebook and Instagram your submissions! Tag your art #scbwidrawthis

The Draw This! guidelines are different from our Bulletin art submission guidelines, so please read carefully.
  • You must be a current SCBWI member to submit to Draw This!
  • Artwork must be inspired by the prompt word in some way
  • Art may be black & white, grayscale or RGB color
  • File resolution must be 72 dpi
  • Jpegs only
  • No image dimensions larger than 8.5 x 11 (or 11 x 8.5)
  • Vignettes, line art and full bleed art are welcome
  • File must be titled as follows:  Prompt word_First name_Last name.jpg (Bounce_Sarah_Baker.jpg)
  • Each member may only submit one entry per prompt word
  • Email your file as an attachment, NOT in the body of the email, to:

**Failure to follow these guidelines will result in exclusion from the online gallery. For questions, write to

We can’t wait to see and display all your fabulous artwork!

This is a great opportunity to be seen. Also, remember I would love to show off you artwork right here on this blog. If you are an illustrator, you should always be thinking about marketing. Many times you can’t afford to spend the money to market yourself, but here are two opportunities to get noticed without spending a penny.

Talk tomorrow,



  1. Reblogged this on Darlene Beck-Jacobson.


  2. Sounds fun!


  3. My dad would be very interested in this as he is an artist. What is the website/magazine you have to sign up for?
