Plans and Expectations be Damned
With my portfolio finished, and my business card and postcard complete I was ready for Dragon Con, or so I thought. My grand plan for Dragon Con 2008 was to show my work to industry insiders, and then get them to give me work.
That is not what happened at all.
Instead I ended up meeting with a number of skilled illustrators and comic book artists who took the time to review my portfolio. Many of them spent 30 minutes or more with me! I received some great critiques and some excellent advice on how to make it as an artist and an illustrator.
Over the next several posts I will discuss my time with each of these artists and their comments about me work.
