Portfolio Critiques with Mela Bolinao
 
 

Portfolio critiques:
3 portfolios will be chosen by lottery and critiqued by illustration agent Mela Bolinao of MB Artists. For more information on MB Artists and who they represent, see www.mbartists.com.The portfolio must be between 8 and 12 pages to be eligible for critique

 
The following tips from art directors should help you put together a portfolio:
 
1)      Include only ONE style in your portfolio; if you can do other styles, save them for another portfolio.  This is because art directors looking to hire someone for a book prefer to know what sort of style they’re going to get. 
2)      Include a variety of compositions.
3)      Try to have 3 pictures that include the same character, to show that you know how to draw characters from different angles with different expressions.
4)      Include at least one picture that shows you can convey movement.
5)      If you can draw children well, try to include pictures that show this skill.
