Q: I'm trying to market myself in Illustration. Do you have any advice for me?

©: Anything is better than sitting at home and mope about your talent.
• You should set up a Website for yourself. Free listings & Submissions are available with YAHOO.com, FOLIOPLANET.com, COROFLOT.com etc.
• You can also check on many ON-LiNE Reps & get yourself listed at an affordable price (e.g., ALTPICK.com, theiSPOT.com, WorkBook.com, BlackBook.com/ etc.)
• Business cards, Postcards, Promo-kits, Portfolio mail-outs are all very helpful.

It's also good for you to reach out locally. A small gallery/art display at a bar/coffee shop can also attract potential clients. Sure, you hear "it's all about 'who you know' and 'networking'". But ultimately, it is about your talent. So, don't underestimate the public.
Keep your options & mind open (and your pencils, sharpened). =)

 

Q: What advice do you have for starting out artists aspiring to become Illustrators?

©: A part-time job isn't so bad. Don't be so high & mighty about yourself!
To TRULY LOVE what it is that you do & do it for the right reasons.
......................and just, "Follow the Yellow Brick Road" :)
