OK well here it is...my 1st blog. Something I have been meaning to do for ages, but had no idea for what to do or what to write.
However I will suss this out and hopefully someone may be interested.
Well it has been a nice week so far. Monday was an exhausting day at the London Book Fair, showing my portfolio to publishers and agents and generally getting good feedback, although some differing ideas on illustration fashions, that I will take into account and work on both my styles.
My agent was very encouraging and has sent me away to work up some ideas and develop some concepts for children's picture books.
Publishers ranged from picture books to children's Bibles (a lot of interest here).
So I have followed up this interest and will send out more samples of work.
Seems Zeb was generally the favourite from my portfolio. An old piece that a few years ago was not so fashionable, but now is a great hit, so I dug the little toy out of the loft and got sketching. (I'll try to post the images if I can work out how!)
