Children's Book Conference Day 1

Book Passage in Corte Madera: What an incredible bookstore and what a great conference.

Beautiful Oops is a book I've admired for a long time, and I got to sit by Barney at dinner. I asked him if he had any advice for me. I'd like to loosen up and to be successful in doing final art in the same style as my sketches, instead of trying to "perfect" everything to death. He had two interesting suggestions:

1. To try drawing with my left hand instead of my right

2. To drink a glass of wine before I start drawing
