As the NESCBWI 2014 approaches fast I feel everything getting really real. The conference starts this Friday so I should be in a big panic, but that has not happened. I feel ready to attend my first Children's Book conference.
Am I prepared or just naïve? Either way at this moment I am proud that, except for a few finishing touches, I have accomplished: to put together a well rounded portfolio, that includes a good deal of new work; design a logo and identity system that includes promotional post cards and book marks; and designed an illustration for a competition; and as a bonus, I ordered a custom messenger bag that ties in to my identity system.
