SCBWI Success Stories: Renee Treml

Here is another SCBWI Success Story—this time involving the Illustrator Showcase and the fabulous illustrator Renee Treml!

"At the 2014 Conference, I displayed my illustrations at the Portfolio Showcase.  A few weeks later I was contacted by Tiffany Malins of Scholastic Australia to illustrate a new Father’s Day Book, Daddy, You’re Awesome!  It was the first book I illustrated that I didn’t also write and it was a fantastic experience.  The team at Scholastic were very supportive and encouraging.  This book led to a second project illustrating Jess Black’s Moon Dance (Scholastic 2015)."
