I told y'all I am the new Illustrators' Coordinator for the Southern Breeze region of SCBWI? Well, I've planned a new event, the announcement went out to the board this morning:
As the second activity as your new Illustrators' Coordinator, I've put together a Portfolio Workshop for all of you going to the Fall Conference on October 17th, hoping to show a portfolio, with no idea how best to do that. (You can come even if you're not going to the conference.)
Loraine Joyner, Art Director of Peachtree Publishers has graciously agreed to give attendees pointers on what she typically receives and what she'd like to see in portfolios. Bring what you have, something slick, or works in progress, and Loraine will give public general critiques of several of the portfolios on hand so everybody can get an idea of what is or isn't effective (they will be presented in the order of sign ups, so sign up fast!). Then I'll talk about how to implement what she suggests - putting together a strong, working portfolio for the conference (or in general).
Where: Little Shop of Stories
133 East Court Square
Decatur, GA 30030
When: Saturday, October 4th, 3:00 - 5:00 pm
Cost: $35 per person - we need at least ten participants
to make this workshop viable, so please sign up soon.
How: Email me at elizabeth at dulemba dot
com and let me know you would like to attend.
Bonus: All attendees will receive coupons for discounts on
portfolio supplies at Binders Art Supplies.
Hope you can join us for what promises to be an educational and fun get-together!
