The Second Annual Conference of Creative Entrepreneurs is happening this weekend in San Francisco -and there's still time to register! I have been so busy with the move, I plum near forgot to blog about this amazing event was founded and organized by the utterly awesome Jamie Marie Chan, Lauren Venell, Laura Henry, Kristen Rask and Andrea Porter. Last year's CCE was held in Seattle (I participated there too) and it was a huge success. It's a rare chance to listen to three days of panel discussions with some of the top independent designers, artists and entrepreneurs. Like who? Like me! Yes, me mom!
I'm speaking on these three panels:
Friday 8/5 Day 1:
1-2 pm Your First Book Deal with Jenny Hart, Meg Mateo Ilasco, Christina Loff and Jodi Warshaw, moderated by Susanne Woods.
Saturday 8/6 Day 2:
11-12 Taking it to the Next Level with Christine Schmidt and Evan Gross, Brandon Levey, Mita Patnaik, Ferron Salniker and Jenny Hart, moderated by Jordan Kushins.
3-4 Intellectual Property Discussion with Jenny Hart and Keith Cooper

The conference continues through Sunday, but alas -back to work for me. Other not-to-miss sessions:
The Work of Art with Lisa Congdon
Creative Collaboration - Don't DIY Alone with Willo O'Brien
The Price is Right - Pricing Strategies with Grace Dobush
How to Approach a Gallery with Lainya Magana
A Day in the Life: Illustration with Jaime Zollars
I know the tickets aren't exactly cheap, but it is a very concentrated gathering of experience minds spilling their hard-earned info and best advice! I'd pay for that, myself. Hope to see you there!
