Hey there!
I’m joining the Folktale Week 2018! 🍁🌟🍄


(Watercolor, Ink and white marker on paper)

I’m copy&pasting the official text and can just recommend everyone to follow the linked accounts and the hashtag #folktaleweek2018 to see lots of great art! 🧡

Here is  Jennifer m. Potter s announcement & the officialprompt list!

“How it works:
On October 29th, we’ll release the prompts. Then for seven days starting November 12th, follow the prompts and create a piece of art. Interpret the prompts any way you wish and with any medium you like.

Use the hashtag #folktaleweek and #folktaleweek2018 to show your work and interact with other artists. The challenge hosts will be pulling work from the hashtag to promote in our stories! At the end, we’ll share our favorites in our feed!

The challenge was created to encourage artists from all around the world to share stories and explore character creation and visual storytelling. We want to see Your bewitching characters and dreamy scenes!

Many incredible artists came together to make this challenge possible. Be sure to check out their profiles for inspiration.”

I chose some German Fairytales, some might not be well-known in the US, so I am curious to see what the others are creating and what you will think about my work! I will use different techniques, so it never gets boring.

At the end of the Folktale Week, I will add all the pictures to an album on my homepage, until then you can follow me on Instagram or Facebook and see my creations there!

So let’s start with “Once upon a time…”,

Yours,     Corinna



SCBWI Monthly Meeting September 2018


Today I got up a bit early and headed to the Seattle Public Library in Downtown Seattle.

Every time I get there it takes me a bit to orientate and focus, as the architecture is just so intense – I love it there. After a few minutes I went to the Auditorium to check in and get a good seat. The different organizers of the SCBWI monthly meeting talked about their agenda and future events (like the “weekend on the water” in November) and then Jolie Stekly came up to the podium and talked about the publishing world and some basics when it comes to publishing children’s books (& young adult literature) and included a little get-to-know-your-seatneighbor activity.

I had a lot of fun and I learned a lot, I also took lots of notes of books to read, things to research and ideas how to become better in my art and what to do with it.

I can only recommend the SCBWI to everybody that wants to write or/and illustrate children’s books.
