Please join us for our fourth annual Portfolio Preview Day! This is free to SCBWI illustrator members. The day is geared to help you come to RMC-SCBWI conference with a slick, sleek, poppin’ portfolio. You do not need to be a registered conference attendee to come to the Preview Day, but conference attendance is recommended. (Registration link: CLICK HERE)

10:30 AM: Doors open. Drip coffee provided. Bring snacks to share and rub elbows with other illustrators.

10:50 AM: Short Presentation on creating a stellar portfolio. A portfolio checklist handout will be provided. Q&A followed by portfolio viewing/critique and feedback. The format will depend on how many attendees we have, but be ready to take notes as well as offer suggestions to other illustrators.

Note: We will use the sandwich format for critique: 1. Identify something you feel is successful. 2. Make suggestions for something that could use improvement. 3. Follow up with another positive or encouragement. 

Please bring: Your portfolio (as is) and business cards/postcards or postcard concept sketches. If you would like to bring original artwork for feedback, this is allowed for the preview, but plastic sleeves are recommended and artwork safety is not guaranteed.

Don’t feel like your portfolio has to be showcase ready to attend. The idea is to get peer feedback before showing your work to editors, art directors, and industry professionals.
