Happy New Year

I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful New Year! Last year was an amazing journey! From attending the 13th Annual SCBWI Winter Conference in New York City in January to spending time at the NESCBWI regional conference in Springfield, MA, I had the opportunity to meet so many incredibly talented writers, illustrators, agents, editors, and art directors.

With 2013 already upon us, I have a lot of big changes and announcements in store. One of the biggest is the update of The A.P. Sabourin Studio website. With an expanding portfolio of work, the need to add some new features and sections to the site, and the importance of updating the design, coding, and responsiveness of the site, I've found it necessary to begin work on a new website. As the new site develops, I'll post updates. Last year, I began taking classes in web design. So, I'll also be putting up some more design related work as well. May everyone have an exciting (and lucky) 2013!
