Illustrators of the Future at Coleman College
Miguel spoke about what the contest did for his confidence and resultant expanded career.

I talked about how the book is a best seller and is a good indicator of how good they need to be to consider themselves professional - whether writing or illustrating. We also showed them the illustrator contest entries for the winners of volume 20 so they could see what others have submitted in the past.
We also showed the students the documentary of the workshop and awards ceremony done in Seattle. It went over really well and we were invited to come back to brief again at their main campus.
Overall it was a great trip.
