Illustration Friday is such a cool way to build or update your portfolio. The feedback I got at SCBWI conferences this year was that my work is suitable for educational markets. This is fabulous; I've been enjoying the educational illustration projects I've been working on.
I'd really like to do books as well though. I illustrated a board book for Simon & Schuster this year and really had a blast doing it. I want more, so I'm working towards updating my portfolio with that in mind.
