Good to hear you enjoyed the course. Looks like you've worked really hard with it too, 3 manuscripts is great. And I really know the feeling of comparing your own work to others, I do it all the time, it's really hard not to do. Keep working, your illustrations are great.


I can relate, Roz. I recently received a magazine in which I was one of maybe 10 illustration contributors. My stuff didn't stand up against the others, at least in my eye. But others say they liked my stuff. I think we may be too hard on ourselves.


You're right. We are too hard on ourselves! Why is that I wonder?


great advice from Robert Genn....robert is as interesting in real life as he is in his newsletters. I told him once that i wish i had a "pocket robert" that i could pull out for inspiration every now and then....like a pez dispenser...he really like that!



I know exactly how you feel. I went through a 2-3 week period thinking that everything I created just sucked. I feel a bit better after creating my last illustration friday piece (the one you commented on :) but I think these feelings are inevitable. An intergral part of the creative process, it's how we force ourselves to improve. By the way, I used to live in Austin and attended the SCBWI confrences and critique groups. We moved to Maryland after my daughter was born and I miss that funky creative atmosphere. Thank Goodness for the internet. ;)
