My Illustration Portfolio!

Wednesday, March 02, 2011

At long last I've started putting together my illustration portfolio specifically for children's books. May the children's book hustle begin! I did quite a bit of research, and found a good portfolio should have 10-15 images of:
  • people, especially kids doing all sorts of things (check!)
  • animals, different sorts & in various settings (sort of check)
  • double truck spreads & single spreads to show composition
  • color & b/w pieces (eeeeep)
  • consistent characters (pieces showing the same characters in different scenes to prove you can draw consistently... check!)
It was hard to determine if a popular print made for a strong portfolio. I guess time will tell. I'm new to this whole thing so wish me luck!
