Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators
Laurent Linn is the facilitating at Oklahoma's conference in Tulsa. For critiques, Laurent agreed to let a max of ten illustrators experience what it is like to work with an art director through a speeded-up version of the basic process an illustrator and art director use when creating art for a book to be published. will choose a scene to sketch from text Laurent provides, he'll give feedback and an opportunity to make revisions prior to conference. They'll bring the revised illustration to the conference and meet with him.
This is a great opportunity for anyone who wishes to work with an Art Director. Some of you may know I was one of Laurent's selected "mentees" in the 2010 Mentor Program and his direction truly helped me to reach new heights as an aspiring illustrator.
