My sister-in-law (and nieces!) hosted a little book party to celebrate my first foray into the world of publishing last week. She made some fun snacks and the moms chatted in the kitchen while i held court with about 15 little girls in the dining room. i told them about my job as an illustrator/designer and walked them through the Fashion Book a bit. i brought along tracing paper and my portable lightbox for them to try and prepped worksheets for each girl to practice with. Everyone got a copy of the book and they even lined up for me to sign them. It was such a fun night!
Check out the drawing one of the girls made that night and gave to me (above). Isn’t it awesome? Her name is Delaney and i had such a nice time chatting with her mom. i think we are going to repeat the event for her birthday party next month! Thanks for sharing your art with me, Delaney! i love it!
And a big thanks to Jodi, my SIL. You really made the night special, right down to my surprise congratulatory cake. It was so wonderful. LOVE YOU!
