Little Women Jo on fire!

 I've been a member of the SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators) for a few months now, and they have some great awards and scholarships to apply for.  I recently applied for their mentor-ship program and today I turned in a submission for the Tomie dePaola Award.  The winter will get to attend the Winter Conference in New York for free.  With 300 entries last year, I'd be very surprised to win, but no matter the outcome I had so much fun with this challenge.  For this piece I had a choice between 3 novels to pick an excerpt from to illustrate in black and white.  I picked "Little Women."

Submissions are now closed, but you can read more about the award here if you're interested in applying for next year:
