I was very happy this week to receive a package of three printed books that I illustrated last year. It wasn't in the contract that I would receive printed books, but they agreed to send me a copy of each anyway. I really love seeing the published books. So I've been busy this week updating my online portfolios: www.portfolios.com/claire and www.childrensillustrators.com/clairelmilne.The stories were really funny and charming, the titles are Fruit from Space, The Land of the Peppertoes, and Food Fight. I think Food Fight was my favourite, it's very funny. In that story the dairy decide it isn't fair that they are left at the back of the store, and try to take over the front. Of course the produce puts up a fight!
It's a funny thing - when I'm swamped with work and have lots of samples I could put into the portfolios I generally don't have time to do it. But when things slow down, it's because I'm not busy with new work. Right now I seem to have a nice balance for once, I'm busy with Cinderella but I still had time to do some updating.
Ok back to work on Cinderella...
