#6: Get Your Portfolio in Tip-Top Shape!
If you’re planning on showing your portfolio at WonderCon Anaheim, get prepared in advance. Before you start prepping your best work to include, check out the great advice that is available right here on our Toucan blog from our “resident artist,” Eisner Award-winner Steve Lieber. Steve has covered how to show your portfolio at a convention and also how to give a good critique of someone’s work, which is helpful to know when you're on the receiving end of criticism. This is incredibly valuable advice for any artist looking to show his or her portfolio, so click on the links and check it out.
And you writers who have stuff you want to pitch, check out what writer Marc Bernardin has to say in his Toucan columns, too, specifically this one where he tells you how to pitch your ideas—and how to handle yourself—at a convention. (Both Steve and Marc's tips are from March 2013, so don't let the "March is WonderCon Anaheim Month" graphic fool you! In 2014, APRIL is WonderCon Anaheim month!)
And remember … WonderCon Anaheim will have Portfolio Reviews in Room 206B all three days of the convention. Our schedule for that room will go live on the website soon!
