Saturday is Agent's Day. This will be the first time I attend this event. I haven't really heard a lot of positive reviews for this event in regards to illustrators. Reading the information on the website and what has been emailed to us, it seems to be more writer oriented. But I believe in giving things a shot. You never know what might happen or who you might meet. I don't really know what to expect, but after adding pieces to my portfolio, receiving my bookmarks in the mail, and fixing my website I'm actually a bit excited to attend. I can already see a difference in my portfolio of my progress.
I still love my pen and colored pencil work, but I enjoy the way my characters look done with watercolor pencils. They look soft and cuddly. I love my original drawings with their black and white backgrounds and colorful characters. I thought it was a unique style that would set me apart from other. But the full color illustrations have begun to win me over.
