Illustrated Notes (Part 2): Steve Asbell and Yuko Torii

 Those of you who attended Jolie Stekly's Orientation session will have seen the invitation to tweet illustration conference notes. Thanks to those who have been posting and tagging me!

If you missed it, do check out Illustrated Notes (Part 1), which features the illustrated notes of graphic novel creator, Stan Yan.

Here are a few illustrated notes from Steve Asbell (@steve_asbell on Twitter, whose debut solo picture book FLAP YOUR HANDS: A Celebration Of Stimming! launches in 2024 from Lee & Low. Steve's book is a celebration of autistic children and will be out for Autism Acceptance month (April). You can find more info about the book over on Goodreads. 😉

From Steve: "The SCBWI Florida conferences and workshops are responsible for nurturing and launching my career in kidlit. I love my writing/illustrating community!"
