"If you want to be a writer you have to be reverent.
If not, why are you writing? Why are you here?
Think of reverence as awe,
as presence in and openness to the world."Western WA chapter of SCBWI, I had the opportunity to take classes with two illustrators whose work I admire a great deal, Sergio Ruzzier and Kelly Murphy. After three days that were filled to the brim (with experimental drawing, inking, color theory, spectacular sunsets and the kindest most wonderful people) I came home inspired, grateful, in awe.
