The Monster List Logo!

I've been posting to The Monster List of Picture Book Agents for a while now. Yes, sometimes there are can be longish periods of time in-between posts but I am for sure dedicated to updating the list as often as I can. So I'd like to present The Monster List of Picture Book Agents logo by Dana Carey!

I love the imagery Dana created to represent the list. Mysterious. A little intimidating perhaps. But behind the door there is opportunity! There are many agents out there who represent what you write. You have to open that door and find the agent for you!

I've known Dana Carey for a while now. Since a bit before she did her Unread interview with me I suppose. Not only is Dana is the Assistant Regional Advisor for SCBWI France, she's a fabulous writer and illustrator (obviously). Not too long after that interview I got brave and asked Dana if she wanted to trade picture book manuscripts with me. She did! I'm so glad I asked because now not only is she my good friend with a level head that I can also count on for good advice, she's also my partner in Sub It Club.

I didn't know this when I asked her to help me head up Sub It Club, but Dana was a graphic designer in New York City before she moved to France. I feel so lucky to have her in charge of all of Sub It Club's graphic design along with the Monthly Goalpost, Illustrator Postcard Posts, and day to day duties!

And now, not only will my Monster List posts look great, I can post them to Pinterest and make them a resource on the Sub It Club Pinterest pages as well!


Dana Carey for being a wonderful friend, a fabulous critique partner, and for giving me the gift of a beautifully designed logo!


  1. Oh my gosh! I'm speechless. Heather, THANK YOU! If you hadn't reached out we never would have done all these great things together. I was such a shy newbie when you plucked me up off twitter! It was a big honor for me. And you've been there doing all the same things for me. And more! Thank you, dear friend.

  2. Love the new logo! And now I'm headed over to the sub it club to see what that's all about. . .

  3. An honor! Hee hee. Big hugs to you Dana. <3

    Ruth, we would totally love for you to join us! The private facebook group is where most of the action goes down.

  4. What a fabulous logo! I love Dana's work, and I love hearing about the evolving circle of support that led to the Sub-It collaboration. Cheers!
