SCBWI: LA Conference 2012

Award-winning illustrator Bryan Collier gave a heartfelt keynote speech.

An empty ballroom after the conference just ended…

Bryan Collier inspired me when he talked about approaching editors every week for 7 years to drop off his portfolio.  He said he felt inspired just sitting in the office where exciting things happened.  He knew he wanted to be part of this world.  Seeing this empty ballroom where so many exciting things took place, I know that I too want to be part of this world.

Bryan Collier also mentioned that the door to this world is open just a crack.  I’ve been joking ever since that I just might be small enough to fit through there 😉
