Last Day of July!

Omg it's the last day of July! Things are getting really busy for me and I am very excited about all of them.

The first thing happening starting tomorrow is the SCBWI summer conference in Los Angeles, which is SOLD OUT!


If you don't know, the SCBWI is the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. I do both, professionally. I have illustrated about 18 books now and written a few picture books for a mobile app company I worked for in 2012/2013 called FarFaria. I am currently pitching my early chapter book series entitled Uli Driscoll in Trouble, and will have a dummy at the conference attached to my portfolio.

New Character Studies-Style Study

As you may know I spent the spring getting my EARLY chapter book finished and illustrated, all 70 pages, yup SEVENTY but before that I started roughing out my picture book. I am working on developing the style guide and character study for it. Today I did these two illustrations that probably won't be in the book, but rather just getting to know my two youngest characters in the book-Valerie, her friend Tommy and her Scottie-Tavish. I hope you like them!

Buy Some Prints to Raise Money for Me AND the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society!

So who wants to buy some prints?? And or commissions? Raising funds for the hotel at the summer conference, the last B School payment and other costs that I have coming up. I would LOVE your support. After I pay those things off, 100% of the money I make from now until Oct 11th will be going to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society walk. Yup that's right 100% of the sales will go there, but I can't do that UNTIL these other things are paid up. Please check out my site, if I have posted a drawing that you want a print of, it's simple contact me. THANKS my lovelies! http://www.stepholivieri.com/#!prints/c1qno
