Past Masterclasses in 2018
10 March 2018 David McDougall, art director, Harper Collins, led a wonderful masterclass on what kind of portfolio gets you commissioned. As usual, David was very generous with his time and expertise. Read about the masterclass on Words and Pictures, written by Sarah Underwood.
Huge congratulations to those of you whose work was selected to be in our first ever;
SCBWI BI Biennial Illustration Exhibition
PICTURES AT PLAY!
Hosted in the fabulous new space of the Half Moon Theatre Gallery.
Thank you to all SCBWI illustrator members for submitting over 140 illustrations to our juried illustration competition!
It was a hard task to select from such a high standard of sequential art, from both published and unpublished members, in a wide range of children’s genres. So a big thank you to our publishing industry for all their work!
Watch for the next Call for Entries for 2019!
The Pictures At Play Grand Launch Party and Talk took place on on 28 September, 2017 at the Half Moon Theatre, London. Exhibitors’ books and prints were (and continue to be!) available for sale with some proceeds going to War Child. In the theatre our brilliant guest artists and publishers took part in a panel talk hosted by Bridget Marzo, discussing the different ways they collaborate to make great books.
