This afternoon I had a tutorial with an illustration tutor, Chris. I brought in all my artwork and we sifted through them and decided which ones were my strongest work and what I should include in my portfolio.
I have decided not to include work from many uni projects as I feel that work is not my best and does not define me as an artist. Chris told me to only include artwork that I enjoy doing and would like to do again, as I wouldn’t want to create something I didn’t want to. We narrowed it down to 12 and I’m happy with those pieces.
Chris advised that I develop these pieces further and to keep a sketchbook on me at all times. He also told me to check out illustrators Catell Ronca and Olivia Bullock.
