Having a portfolio is vital for not only representing who you are as an artist, but a key way of putting your work in front of art directors or people commissioning work. Working with an experienced illustrator or art director, a portfolio review can help you determine the number of pages you need, which work to include, how to order it so it tells a virtual story, demonstrate character development, drawing subjects in the area you are seeking work in, the right balance of b&w and colour, how to showcase your best skills, what people are looking for and what to avoid.
Mentors can also discuss practical elements such as: sending your pdfs to publishers, reducing pdf files without losing quality, reproducing your work, getting postcards, flyers made, presenting your work professionally.
Please note: This mentorship does not provide detailed edit notes or offer introductions or recommendations to publishers or agents.
