Lost Weekend 2012
Thank you, David! You are the best!
(Here's Super David with Super-dog Lily.)
Last weekend, one of our SCBWI mentor David Diaz invited the Mentorship Award winners and guests over to his house for a four-day weekend in San Diego (aka Lost Weekend). Four fabulous days with all these amazing artists? If this were a dream, don't wake me up!
Food! Food! Food! More delicious food!!!
Us discussing art and children's books.
We all shared our techniques! Here is Debbi Ohi giving a demo.
Jen Betton Rogers wowing us with watercolor.
Andrea Offermann demoing by the warm and cozy fireplace.
David Diaz doing magic.
Us taking a leisure morning walk on the lovely beach.
Jen Betton Rogers, Lisa Anchin and I spend the last day marveling around Balboa Park before heading home.
What a blast! Thank you, David, for such an mind-blowing and lovely weekend! Thank you too, Rubin Pfeffer and Jen Rofé, for giving us wonderful advise!
I absolutely look forward to the next gathering~ Those of you going to the New York conference February 2013, I'll see you there! :) :) :)
