I have some questions, sorry if I'm a little long in this post...
- Illustrator agent (or representative, I don't know the right word) : do you think it can be usefull to contact some agents in the usa or anywhere else ? I used to work in France with one illustrator agency but it's a small agency and they didn't give a lot of work to their illustrators (and I had to work a lot to do good portfolios for them). There is only a few agents in France and I don't know if in other countries they help more often illustrators
- publishers : do you know where I could find a list of publishers (child publishing but not only) because I'd like to try to contact some of them. Do you know if they really read emails and if they take some time to look at online portfolios (I can't afford multiple color prints of the drawings and send it to many people) ?
- online portfolios websites : do you know if websites like iStockphoto.com or portfolio.com are interesting ? Some are free and some can be expensive and I don't know if they are a good display place for drawings, if customers really visit these sites ? if yes, wich one could be a good first choice ?
thank you for any idea (even negative ones) because until now I worked more as a graphic designer and I 'd like to try to be more a illustrator, maybe not immediatly but I don't know exactly where to begin.
ps : you can give me answers here or by email ( ced at graphinc.com)
