Serendipity and Self Promotion


It’s such a good feeling when life comes full circle. Today I spoke at Parson’s School of Art and Design with David Ezra Stein and Nancy Paulsen. We were invited by Pat Cummings as special guests for her Children’s Book Illustration Class. The bulk of the talks were about breaking into the business and the long road to getting published. I have uploaded a couple of today’s videos on my Youtube channel. Enjoy~

    Congratulations on your recent success Shadra, I wish I had gotten the chance to hear you speak when I was still at Parsons. Pat seems very cool. Stay up.
