Thank you So So So much for the incredible portfolio review yesterday. I feel like I got an art lesson in addition to a review! I have been thinking of your feedback and cannot wait to dive in... I am so glad I reached out to have you review my work. I will for sure be reaching out again the in the future. I have been talking about your review non-stop!
Olga has helped me so much with my children's book illustration career. She has been a wonderful mentor, friend and critique partner for my stories and PB dummies. Her talent, extensive knowledge and keen eye for tangents are invaluable tools for any illustrator. She gives clear steps to follow towards improving your art and writing.
"I just had a portfolio review with @Olgachildrensillustrator, That was so Precious!
Remember when an editor told you the values are wrong or you should work more in this one but you don't know how?
Olga show you exactly how to do it!"
