Calling All Children's Illustrators :-)


Since I often get emails from people who would like to break into the business of children's illustration, I'd like to make a compilation of tips from some of you experienced illustrators out there just for them. When I started out, I myself wrote other illustrators for advice and they were always happy to share their valuable insight into this challenging field. So.....drop me a line...paige dot keiser at gmail dot com (did it that way to beat out bot-email collectors), and share some tips, inspiration, do's and don'ts--whatever strikes your fancy. I'll of course post an image of your choice and a link to your blog or website, whichever you choose. I'll be placing a link to this post in my tool bar at the top of my blog. Let's give back a bit in the name of (in my case, the kind hearted and talented illustrator, Elaine Garvin--miss you Elaine....) someone who helped US out when we were greenhorns and wet behind the ears.

Hi Paige, I think is awesome what you are doing here. I sent you an email earlier. Not that I have a huge career or anything he, he... but I wanted to add my 2 cents :o)
