Sketch Battle at NESCBWI17

I had a great time at the NESCBWI conference this past weekend. Always a fun event.

A couple of weeks ago, I broke my arm in a biking accident. However, this is the third such incident in three years, so I've had some practice at being a lefty. I was even able to win Sketch Battle drawing with my left hand!

Here are some of my drawings based on the prompts:
"Animal Tea Party"

"Why did the chicken cross the road?"

"Make Voldemort cute."

Thank you to Christina Rodriguez for putting together this event, and thank you to Sarah Lynne Reul for the photos.
