Approach self-promotion and getting your name out there as a creative project in itself.
Be confident with your ideas.
Remember to document and show your work in context.
Don’t confuse an agent or a client. If you work in a variety of different styles, separate your work in to different portfolios, each with a coherent voice.
Develop a unique voice within your work and have courage to make it heard.
It’s important to see your work in different contexts.
Don’t be tempted to slap your illustration on every product going. Design work for specific products.
Just do what you love doing.
