As an author/illustrator, I usually whiz along, getting things done, coffee in hand.
...in recent months I found myself waylaid by holidays, health problems and home repairs.
This post is LONG overdue.
Anyway, a while back I signed up for a portfolio review with Giuseppe Castellano.

So glad I invested in that portfolio review.
It's been a learning experience:)
