Children's Book Illustrators Guild

One of the great things that has happened over the last year and a half is that I have been fortunate to have been introduced to the Childrens Book Illustrators Guild (CBIG) here in Minneapolis. I have met alot of great fellow artists and friends. One of the exciting things that we as a group have taken on over the last 6 months is to redevelop a website with illustration samplings from all of our members and also do promotional mailings to drum up more attention. Now I know that there are a few things to work out with the website and they will be fixed very soon, but was really happy to see the new postcard that we are sending out to all of the publishers. It will be interesting to see what they all think of the new look!

That's awesome, Shawn! I think being part of a larger group with similar goals and backgrounds is great for us artists working solo.

I agree Cynthia. There is just something about being apart of a group that has similar goals. It makes all those let downs that much easier when you are not the only one! Plus, it can really motivate you as well to get going on your things. Thanks for stopping by!
