My entry for the Missouri SCBWI 2015 conference poster Illustration

Soaring_Sislen_300This is my illustration for the SCBWI-MO conference Illustration competition. The theme is “Soaring to New Heights!” The conference is this weekend, September 15-16th at Lindenwood University in St. Charles Missouri, just outside of St. Louis.

If you have been following this blog, you might just recognize the mouse character from theMOYH 3d_BookCover last picture book I illustrated “There’s a Mouse on My Head!” by Donna Warwick. I enjoyed illustrating that book so much, I have just fallen in love with the little chubby mouse.

The first week of October, Donna Warwick and I will be doing a presentation at the Jewish Book Festival Book Club Tea. We have some fun surprises for the attendees.

My entry for the SCBWI illustrator challenge for June “Bounce”

Bounce_Dayne_SislenThe theme is Bounce–
This my entry in the SCBWI’s illustrator challenge for June . The prompt is the word BOUNCE. I am so lucky that I was already working on this illustration for the new picture book I am illustrating for Donna Warwick, called “There’s a Mouse on My Head!” I guess I could say, “There’s a Mouse on my Bread!” ‪#‎scbwidrawthis‬
