About the webinar:

Now that you’'re on your way to making a great portfolio, find out the next steps to your illustration career. Children’s book and magazine illustrator Pam Levy takes us on a tour of finding work as an illustrator. She will outline how to choose and approach publishers in the trade book, educational, and magazine markets, talk about what to do business-wise once you have a contract in hand, and discuss agents and lawyers. She will also help us understand the traditional ways jobs come from art directors, publishers and packagers, and how to make a submission package for a self-generated book project.
