Lost AGAIN!



My scanner is not picking up some of these Doc Martin's colors. Grrrr.... I might have to just stick with watercolors for online pieces.

Anywho, these pieces are all for my online portfolios. I have one on my paigekeiser.com site, one on picture-book, and one on childrensillustrators.com ( which I won't be renewing..). After I get my 12 or so strong pieces, I'm sending off a postcard with my best piece. After that, I'm going to work on my picture book manuscript/dummy, and send off some illustrated poems to Ladybug magazine. (GASP) Yep lots to do, and meanwhile I will also be juggling the assigments that keep me fed and watered.

Sounds like a great plan of attack!

Good plans, Paige.

So are the inks picking up ok when the clients are scanning the work?

Hi Paige, I've been enjoying your blog for quite a while, as well as your brother's. So much talent in one family! I'm curious: I just signed on with childrens illustrators.com, and I'm wondering why you won't renew with them. Also, I think you are so right for Ladybug. Good luck!

Janee : I haven't really used them yet with a client, and if I do, I'll ask them first about it. It would be an unwelcomed surprise to have half the colors not turn out right in a book. Yikes!

Hi Salmon, thanks for the compliment! :-) As for children's, I'm not saying they are bad because several illustrator friends of mine have gotten jobs from them - I on the other hand have only received requests to illustrate from self-publishers, which I don't do. They are also charging 200 this year which is just too much. I already have an ad in picturebook which cost me a bit. Childrens.com just isn't worth it to me. They might work for you though, so go ahead and check it out!
