Honored and humbled to have won the 2019 SCBWI Marvelous Midwest Grand Prize Illustration Award a few weeks back. I can’t say it enough, how lucky I feel to be part of such a great society. The conference did not disappoint - even if I was sick. It didn’t stop me from filling up 20 pages of notes in my sketchbook and connecting with old friends and new friends. So thankful and so happy!
