I had a bit of an exciting day at the London Book Fair today: it started with the LBF Illustrators Session where I showed my portfolio to the lovely Strawberrie Donnelly (who is Art Director for Picture Books and Pre-School at Scholastic). She gave me some very useful feedback which I intend to use to improve my artwork (and hopefully it will help in getting a publishing contract!).
After that I had lunch in the sun (again!) and then I spent the rest of the afternoon attending more interesting seminars and talking to publishing companies.
By the end of day 2 my shoulder is starting to ache though: catalogues and other bochures can get heavy. That being said, it’s a good workout!
Back at the LBF tomorrow for the third and last day of the show.
