Debbie Ohi is a SCBWI Success Story - I saw her earlier in the conference, and we arranged to meet during the autograph party so she could share her experience:
(The SCBWI Illustrator Mentees Blog she mentioned is here.)
Congratulations Debbie - your journey so far is exciting, and we can't wait to hear (and see) the great things you'll be doing!
Thanks for the interview, Lee!ReplyDelete
And AUUUUGH I found out that I totally mispronounced Laurent's name!!! I hope he forgives me by the time I meet him for the first time tomorrow. Or HEY, maybe he won't find out about this video (fingers crossed).
Also, I accidentally covered up my friend Beckett's URL while I was holding up the sign: her URL is http://artbeco.com
THANK YOU, LEE!
Great interview, great story!! Love your energy, Debbie.ReplyDelete
Wow Debbie! I knew you had a lot of energy, but it's nice to SEE it!ReplyDelete
*laugh* Ah Debbie, it's been too long since I've seen you jump up and down...Must find a way to fix that..ReplyDelete
And that's a FAB video my dear.
Love the Show and Tell! Can't wait to see you again!
You are so cute Debbie. Love it!ReplyDelete
Debbie: I've known of you since the wonderful days spent reading your Inkspot online writer's journal. You've been a kind and giving colleague since Day One. But finally. Oh finally. I have never had the pleasure to see you turn into a real live action figure! Thank you, Lee Wind, for sharing this hysterical interview with the incredibly cool, calm and collected Debbie Ohi! Congratulations on all your success. Enjoy meeting and working with your new editors and oy vey, Michael Ian Black! We knew you when!ReplyDelete

Great interview, Lee! Was great to meet you in person the weekend, Debbie, after following your Tweets. Love a good SCBWI success story, too!ReplyDelete
Debbie! You are exactly as I imagined from your tweets and your work - but I canNOT believe you never considered yourself an artist before. That's a riot! I love your work! Congrats on all your good STUFF! I so wish I could've been there last weekend. Sniff.ReplyDelete
Debbie, you are fantastic! What an inspiration! I hope to someday come to one of these conferences to meet you and the other great people involved with SCBWI. Great energy. Loved the props :)ReplyDelete
LOL! Debbie! I remember meeting you shortly before you found out about the awards, and it's SO COOL to see all the success you keep having. YOU DESERVE IT! Thanks (and to Lee too) for sharing your joy with us!!ReplyDelete
And YES, everyone should go to an SCBWI conference! :)
You are a walking ad for the conference! It was so fun to meet you and your excitement is contagious!
I loved the props as well. Great interview and I wish I had your energy(not sure there is enough coffee in the world). The pictures from Simon and Schuster on your Facebook were awesome to see as well.ReplyDelete
So good to hear your success story. Way to go, Debbie! I too am a longtime fan from Inkspot.ReplyDelete
Wow Debbie, your story is amazing!! Congratulations!!ReplyDelete
And I'm glad to see you again, Lee, we met at the LA retreat :)
