Scbwi Winter News Bulletin and Interview

Here is a cover that I illustrated for the SCBWI Winter Newsletter.

The SCBWI only has one requirement for their covers: a kite must be incorporated somewhere on it. I knew that I wanted the kite to represent more than a kite at face value, so I sketched three concepts: A kite that could be a book, the tail being a bookmark; a kite as a portal, an escape from winter; and a kite as a lucky star, a new year wish. They chose the new year wish!

Inside the bulletin they included an interview of me.
