The Austin SCBWI chapter bids a huge THANK YOU to Amy Farrier, who's stepped down as the Illustrator Coordinator after serving for the last three years. Stepping into her duties, we're thrilled to welcome author/illustrator C.S. Jennings, who has been a longtime member and devoted volunteer.
"I am excited and honored to have the opportunity to serve as the illustrator coordinator for the Austin chapter of the SCBWI," C.S. said. "It’s been a powerful and inspiring part of my publishing career. Our chapter already has a vibrant community and offerings for our members. I look forward to building on what’s in place for our illustrators—both published and pre-published."
You might recognize Christopher as the voice of our First Impression Panels for many of our annual conferences. C.S. is also the author of HELLO, TEXAS!, author/illustrator of ANIMAL BAND and the illustrator of the JACOB WONDERBAR series as well as other books.
"Christopher really impressed with me with all his ideas for the illustrators in our chapter," said Austin SCBWI Regional Advisor Samantha Clark. "I'm excited to have him on our leadership team and know he'll do a great job."
We're thrilled to have C.S. as our new Illustrator Coordinator.
"Together, we can draw an awesome community," he added. Read more in our interview with C.S. Jennings.
