the road to a streamlined marketable presentation for the juvenile publishing market
Whether you're a seasoned Illustrator or just starting out your portfolio presentation is everything! With over 20 years representing children's book illustration The Byer -Sprinzeles Agency understands that detailed feedback and guidance leads to the most marketable presentation. Our portfolio critique will offer honest, professional recommendations to set you on the road to creating a marketable presentation for the juvenile publishing market. We will offer the positives and negatives of your work and make art directing suggestions to aid you in putting together a presentation that could showcase your work best.
What we want to see
We want to see no less than 10 and no more than 30 samples reflecting what you consider to be your strongest body of work. Many Artists work in more than one style and use more than one medium to create their work. If you do have more than one style, try to show at least a few samples for each. The majority of your samples should be in full color, some black and white with tone or without are fine. Please make sure to mention the medium(s) you work in.
What we don't want to see
Please remember we specialize in children's book illustration. We are not a literary Agency and do not review manuscripts.
