Developing Book Dummies Series – Session 1 Recap


We kicked off the SCBWI Southern Breeze Developing Book Dummies Series on January 16, 2021 to explore Character Design, Color and so much more with our guest David SanAngelo. David shared valuable experience with us on how to create engaging characters for children’s books of all ages. His background in art direction, animation and illustration provided a unique perspective on how to use lines of action, color palettes, composition to bring our characters to life. He shared additional resources for participants to continue their learning experience beyond the session.

The Southern Breeze will host Ebony Glenn on February 27th at 1 pm EST as she shares the steps of Creating Compelling Page Turns in our children’s books.

The Developing Book Dummies series is a 3-month series designed to support writers and illustrators in creating a finished book dummy by the end of the series. Each month includes an assignment on moving the book dummies forward to the next step. Participants can join at any time and all recordings will be available until April 15th, 2021.
