Congrats to Jen Betton, winner of the 2014 New England SCBWI Conference Portfolio Showcase!

This month on, we're going to be doing interviews. I'll be posting mini-interviews with art directors Lauren Rille (Simon & Schuster Children's) and Martha Rago (HarperCollins Children's) later this week.

But first, we at KidLitArtists want to congratulate our own Jen Betton (Mentee Class of 2012) on winning the Portfolio Showcase at the New England SCBWI Conference this past weekend!

I'm sure Jen will be posting about the NESCBWI14 conference and the showcase on her blog soon but until then, I encourage you to visit Jen's website and browse her amazing art at


Debbie Ridpath Ohi (Mentee Class of 2010) just came back from her very first book tour celebrating the launch of NAKED!, a new picture book written by Michael Ian Black and published by Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers. Also recently launched: seven Judy Blume classics reissued as middle grade by S&S with Debbie's illustrations on the covers. You can follow Debbie on Twitter at @inkyelbows.
