  1. I had the pleasure of having my work critiqued by Lily Malcom at the SCBWI Winter Conference in NYC in 2014. It was my first big SCBWI event, and I was blown away by the level of talent of the illustrators. Lily was so wonderful. At the Illustrators Intensive, she spent as much time praising the positive aspects of my work as she did any other illustrators’ work at our table. When she gave constructive criticism, it felt simply like good art direction. I was able to leave the conference with my dignity intact. You really don’t want to miss this event!!!
