YABS, the Young Alberta Book Society, is an organisation that helps to facilitate school author and artist visits (www.yabs.ab.ca). I've been a member for about a year and last night there was a meeting for members held here in Calgary.

It was a mix of local authors, illustrators and one story teller. The meeting was great - really informative and inspiring.  We talked a lot about inspiration and school presentations while drawing exquisite corps pictures.  It was really fun, and the pictures turned out quite interesting. I'd like to try something like that again in the future, perhaps at my sketchgroup.

Take a look...

Thank you to Carolyn Fisher, who organized the meeting. Read her post about it here.
