I am so close to finishing off my illustration portfolio to send off to publishers. These two pieces need scanning and cleaning up in photoshop and then it’s ready to go. This year is going to be the year of making opportunities, chasing goals, working hard.
There are so many inspiring illustrators out there around my age who are hustling and making inroads. Meg Hunt, Emily Carroll, Vera Bee have been three that have really caught my attention recently. They have such enthusiasm, professionalism and energy to their illustrations. Having the opportunity to watch artists professional practices develop online is such a treat.
(As a side note, I don’t know how those three get anything done, they seem to be constantly tweeting and blogging. Or is that getting things done? In fact all my favorite creatives seem to spend a lot of time on twitter. Which is nice for me.)
