Shantala Robinson- Winter Wonderland

Winter Wonderland

Hi Everyone,

I imagine things are getting very busy for all at this time of year, with parties, shopping, baking, and all-around merry-making! But, if you have time, and would like to submit an illustration, our theme for the month of December is "Winter Wonderland." A simple theme, and you can take it in any direction you like. Please note that you can submit an illustration that you already have in your portfolio; it doesn't have to be new.

You do not have to be an SCBWI member to submit an illustration. But only SCBWI members can have their bio up in the members section.

If you have any questions, please email me ( or

Happy Holidays!

November Challenge

Hi Everybody!

Thanks for checking out our illustration blog, and for all the great contributions.

We're now moving on to November- a time when Remembrance day makes many of us turn our thoughts to times past. Often, children hear about the past (whether real or fantastical) from their grandparents. In keeping with this theme, the challenge this month is to illustrate the phrase, "When I was a little boy/girl..." I'll leave it to you to finish the sentence. Or interpret it any way you want!

Things That Go Bump in the Night

Hello everyone and welcome to the launch of our site- where we go bananas over illustration! At the beginning of each month, a phrase, saying, or word will be posted here and the challenge is for us to illustrate on that theme. If you would like to participate, please email Shantala Robinson, Illustrator Coordinator, SCBWI- Canada West, at

This month, because of Hallowe'en, the theme is "Things that go bump in the night."
