• SCBWI Kansas is pleased to announce that the winner of this year’s Fall conference illustration contest is Jesse Graber.    Jesse says, “I am a freelance illustrator working in Kansas City, Kansas. When I’m not drawing I play a lot of music on the fiddle and banjo. I attended Bethel College in North Newton, KS and The American Academy of Art in Chicago. I illustrate books, magazines and educational materials for clients such as McGraw-Hill, Scholastic, Oxford University Press, and Highlights for Children, and I am represented in the children’s market by Cornell & Company.”   Check out more of his fantastic work at www.jessegraber.com.
