Daily Distraction: Prepare Your Portfolio – Illustrators’ Workshop with Doug Cushman!
Posted on October 9, 2014
The Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators The Netherlands is proud to announce an illustrators’ workshop in Amsterdam with award-winning illustrator/author Doug Cushman.
In this true “hands on” day-long workshop, Doug will briefly discuss what is necessary for a professional illustration portfolio and then work one-on-one with each attendee for the rest of the day, discussing specific concerns, approaches and solutions to individual problems in their portfolios. Attendees are expected to be drawing and painting in the class, so bring your paint, your brushes, your pencils, your laptop!
The workshop is the perfect preparation for the upcoming SCBWI Europolitan Conference in Amsterdam, where illustrators will have the opportunity to present their portfolios to publishing professionals like agents and Art Director Martha Rago of HarperCollins Children’s Books, and for the Europolitan Portfolio Showcase Contest, but also for the Bologna Children’s Book Fair.
Doug is in close contact with Martha Rago and knows exactly what she is looking for in a portfolio. Seize this opportunity and join SCBWI The Netherlands for this exciting day!
