I thought I’ d drop a quick line on here to let you know what I have been up to as its been a while since I shared anything.
I’ve spent the month thinking and analysing where I am and how i want to move forward, thanks to the services of a marketing consultant. I’ve realised that i lacked focus and that my work is all over the place. Its a good thing and its a bad thing at the same time.
She has worked on a strategy for me to follow next year. She has also given me a gazillion new product ideas for a parallel business where i will be using my illustrative skills and trying to get some money coming in. We have brainstormed a lot and that brainstorming has helped me see that my website was too cramped. So I simplified it.
My aim is to eventually get commissions from publishing houses to illustrate picture books, I have decided therefore not to offer my services to self publishing authors anymore so I have removed all the nitty gritty stuff that was related to that. I have also removed all the illustrative work that doesn’t really reflect my style when illustrating picture books for 0-5 year olds.
Feel free to drop me a line below in the comments section and let me know what you think about the new layout and the simpler browsing.
Fingers crossed that helps publishing houses see more clearly as to what i can offer them.
