What is publishing looking for these days? I would love to hear from Publishing professionals as well as professional Illustrators, their thoughts on these questions:
- Artist Agent or Not?
- Printed samples vs. emailed links to a digital portfolio?
- Book dummy written & illustrated by the Artist or just Illustrations?
I am a freelance Illustrator and Designer. I worked full-time as an Art Director and Illustrator in both Children’s publishing and Gift products for over 10 years. For the past 7 years I have been freelancing while raising my children. My goal is to push my freelance Illustration and Design business now that my children are a bit older. Can you give any suggestions as well as answers to the above questions?
