I have spent this morning emailing, tweeting and facebooking illustrators who I really like the work of to see if they had any advice for me. Here are the messages I have sent:
I came across Samara Hardy’s work when I saw a book in Tesco and decided to have a look at her website to find that I really like her work, so I emailed her to tell her how much I liked it and to see if she had any advice for me.
I found what Hardy said to me to be useful, as there are all similarities to the people i have spoken to ad their means of self promotion. I hadn’t even thought about getting work my people seeing my work online, I only thought of social media as a means of contact, and this has given me something new to think about as well has what the other illustrators have said to me.
