SCBWI WWA 2013 annual conference portfolio winners

Argh! We have been completely remiss and neglected to publicly honor last year's conference portfolio winner, Liz Wong. Liz's website showcases her work for children and teens, and features access to her fantastic blog. It's well worth a look-see.

If you didn't make it to this year's conference, held last month in Redmond, you missed some amazing portfolios! And for those of you who did make it, here's a recap and links to see more work from the winners.

Our Grand Prize Winner was Lisa Mundorff of Portland. Lisa travels up to Seattle to make most of our meetings and has been submitting (and steadily placing) in the conference portfolio reviews. See more of what she's got at

Our first runner-up was Eileen Sorg, who lives in Kingston and works primarily in colored pencil and watercolor. See her work and her recent book on how you, too, can use colored pencil as well as she can (as if) at


The second runner-up was Seattle's own Ariel Tobin Smith, who somehow draws and posts a character each and every week. See those and more at and at
