SCBWI Conference, Shop Update, Art shows!

There’s been a big shop update! New notepads, pins, and WAX SEALS. These ideas and designs have been in the works for months and I’m just so excited to share them at long last! More about these for my patreons as soon as I’ve caught up on some other work on my plate!

^ Those are notepads for time boxing your tasks! I personally find assigning time to a task makes me more likely to get it done.

Also, I’m speaking at the SCBWI Conference on Friday, a conference designed specifically for professional and aspiring children’s book writers and illustrators. Register online for the conference at — My session is called “Making a Living as an Illustrator: Balancing Career, Values, Income & Play with Susie Ghahremani”

Lastly, I have some shows up in Los Angeles: The Plant Show at Giant Robot, and the Circles show at GR2. Patreons have already seem a preview of my work and processes (and thoughts) for both, but here’s a link to the work online.
