SCBWIEPA Pocono Highlights #2: Get into Character

Dear Alison,

I am a closet illustrator. I admire illustrators' ability to capture a moment, a feeling, a thought, an action in a single illustration. I even went to Zachariah OHora's Illustrator Session (I'll talk about that session another time) in hopes that I could glean some of his creative genius. I was so inspired I decided to create a post through pictures.

So here goes...

The Pocono Retreat 2016 was all about character and we kicked off the weekend Friday night with a costume party...
