Haiku summary

"How to be an Illustrator offers practical help and guidance to aspiring illustrators. All areas of the job are covered - how to create a portfolio; the most effective ways to approach would-be clients; how to prepare for meetings and negotiate contracts; and how to handle, deliver, and bill a job. There is advice on how to avoid the pitfalls that can undermine crucial first impressions; how to set up a studio; and how to maintain a flow of work and manage one's time and cash. Success in self-promotion, creating websites, self-publishing and the pros and cons of agents are all explored." "International illustrators were interviewed, discussing how they got their break in the industry, their experiences with clients, their methods of promoting their work and more. In addition, leading art directors describe their approach to commissioning illustration, how they spot new talent, their thoughts on promotional material and their advice to up-and-coming illustrators."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
