Chris's design firm Schechner and Associates has completed work for publishers, ad agencies, banks, law firms, a seminary, churches and groups (such as the North Texas Chapter of The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.)
For 25 years he served as art director of Pockets, the widely circulated children's devotional magazine published by the Upper Room. Chris has worked with and helped hundreds of children's illustrators over his career.
He's fun, wicked sharp and he understands artists, being one himself, a talented cartoon illustrator. (See pen and ink image, right.) He has set a deadline of Tuesday evening, May 30 to get your website or portfolio URL on the list. He'll look at all of the submitted sites, but pick only ten to speak to in our live session on how to keep our online presence as illustrators fresh and competitive for the children's publishing market.
