Is your portfolio looking professional enough?

Are you approaching the right clients for the right kind of jobs?

The session really helped to clarify my thinking about what I’m doing with my illustration, and on top of that was a lot of fun, she’s an amazing person to hang out with. – Edd Baldry

I can’t believe how much of a revelation Fig’s advice is, or how no-one has ever explained the industry so clearly to me before!  - Hazel Townsend
