Our April meeting was met with great enthusiasm with the induction of member Julie Lemardy into PRO and with the word that several others have started with PRO or PAN proceedings. We also welcomed some new faces and the level of excitement in the air was palpable. That excitement carried over into our speaker event when Terry Lee, Hollywood Producer extraordinaire, discussed in depth the nuances of protagonists and antagonists and their subtle dance around one other. His presentation triggered so many questions and ideas that discussions as to redrafts of heroes and villains is still going on among members.
Next month we welcome Robert Mendoza, who will discuss graphic aesthetics in covers and illustrations. As a long time graphic artist in the New York Publishing arena, his insight will go along way in showing members and guests how to make their work shine.
