Some exciting news to share:
1. I'm officially illustrating a children's book! It's such a beautiful story and deserves the very best work I can make. We're probably going to self-publish (by we, I mean the author and I). More info will come when we've pinned down the style we're going for, and the formatting of the pages.
2. I'm going to CONduit this year (May 25-27, in Salt Lake City), and plan on having a booth set up in the dealers' room for selling art prints, talking about my book, and promoting my husband's game Villages. We'll have stuff to give away, too, so if you're in the area, stop by and say hello! Admission is pretty cheap, and there will be lots of fun panels and such going on throughout the con.
3. My book will be going through a complete rewrite in June, which means that even after the school year and CONduit are over, I'm going to be insanely busy. You can watch my progress, as well as read some excerpts, on my blog, story of her life--found at rachelvtsira.blogspot.com
