I was fortunate enough to attend Diane Muldrow’s “Creating the Picture Book: Master Class” at the 2010 SCBWI Conference in L.A. I heard the class sold out in 15 minutes.
Lucky me, I got in. Diane Muldrow's class took my understanding of picture books and the picture book format to an entirely new level. I recommend it highly. Not only that, but the talent in that class was crazy cool. Here are just a few of the notables:
Bradley Cooper - Honorable mention - Tomie dePaola 2011 Award - (Announced yesterday)
John Deininger -
National and Regional SCBWI portfolio awards (Honorable mention, '08 International Winter Conference; 2nd runner-up, '09 Western Washington Conference).
Debbie Ohi -
