Yesterday I received my copy of Picture-Book for 2009, A directory of Children's Illustration. And what is the first thing I do? Flip through and find my own page, of course!
And then I get that same feeling I always seem to get when I look at my own piece in Picture-Book: "Oh man! I could of done better than this!"
These ads for the directory are always done over a year in advance. Alot of time goes by before you can see it in print- along with alot of other talented illustrators in the book. I'd like to think I've grown with my art since a year ago.
So what do I do now? Make a better piece for the 2010 Directory.
