Literacy Speaks

Korey and I ventured off to Ft. Worth today to finally meet one of his clients in person. When I say finally it's because Korey gets his art jobs via email (due to people seeing his portfolio online), they send a contract, and he starts working. No face to face contact is ever made. It was exciting for him to finally get to meet the author of a speech kit he's done the illustrations for. And the good thing is that this author has put out several speech kits so he's gotten to work on all of them.

We went to the Ft. Worth Convention Center and this is what I found inside. It's all cowboy hats!

I don't remember what the name of this convention was but the author we met is a speech pathologist at a school in Indiana so many of the booths were related to speech, education, and health.

Here is Korey standing by the booth. The sign that they had made is his lettering and characters! He is standing by one of the speech kits he did which contain a coloring book and flashcards.
Him holding a English version of a bilingual set of books he did for the company Northern Speech Services that published the speech kit.
Here is Korey with the speech kit author, Kelli Richmond. You can read more about how the kit works at Literacy Speaks.

After we left the convention we discovered the Ft. Worth Water Gardens downtown.

We opted to keep my pregnant self safe and exhaustion-free at the top and not walk down to the bottom. The thought of squeezing past someone on the steps was not enticing. But it was neat to sit there and look at and a beautiful day!
