Thank you so much for thinking of us @Coreyartus ️
I am Cat, an Illustrator from Transylvania based in Glasgow
I express myself the best through drawings, colours and textures
In my art I mainly focus on light, characters, mystery, cute, nature, symbol & methafors while letting myself influenced by great artists of the past and of the present.

Art Directors or Editors ? 🤔
who makes a decision regarding the right illustrator for a book?
I'm making a contact list for emailing publishers and send greeting cards. I somehow got the impression that it may defer from a publisher to another one, is that right? If so why?
For instance, a company like Penguin Random House has loads of Art Directors affiliated to the same branch. Finding the right person to address in this case is overwhelming, let alone the Art Director vs Editor part... Can someone shine some light on me?
Can anyone help? (Editors)
I have a script and not sure if I want to lean towards self publishing or to get to publishers.
However, the text needs to be edited. Does anyone know how to approach editors with a script?
If you know anyone soliciting just now please let me know!
RE: PODCAST FEEDBACK NEEDED
@Lee-White I imagine this could be a section of the podcast that bleeds out to other topics and brings vlback to previous discussed things yet is very strong related to this one.
I would like to hear your take on pricing/paying services based on where the artists are from. It is frustrating to even imagine there are talented artists charging the 100th of their worth just because they are from "poor countries"
3 questions to shape your career as an illustrator
Hi everyone! The more layers I brake into the publishing world, the more questions I seem to have..
So I realised it is important what sort of questions we should rather ask ourselves in order to carry on when life is salty lemonade or we get distracted.
The questions shouldn't invoke expectations as answers but rather what to focus on. As if they are your compass showing you where North, Est and West are when lost in the woods.
So what are your 3 core questions?
'what does Success really means to me as an illustrator?'
(Applicable to a Project, Partnership, 'The next few years, Life)
'Who should I get in contact in order to get more work''
(this can refere to industry -> company -> the decision maker in that company and it helps personalising the way I approach)
'What can I bring new to the table or improve ?'
I would love to hear what our SVS instructors' questions are, as much as everyone else.
RE: OCTOBER CONTEST: The experiment worked! Penny was so relieved to have her dog back from the dead.
Thanks a lot @Heather-Boyd! I should have concentrated on the current book as well as finding my next client but I really wanted to have a chance to stay connected to this channel!
