jewelry/bead magazine world. In fact, I have a jewelry how-to book proposal out in the publishing world at the moment awaiting it's fate. (Fingers crossed, knock on wood.)
I've had the idea for a kid's craft book in the back of mind for a while and have often been told I should write one. Something just clicked this week and I ended up writing up the outline and possible projects for one. Yeah! So while I work on sending out submissions and marketing my work, I will sneak in a few minutes here and there to work on this project too. Fortunately after a few years of publishing credits, writing crafty directions is as easy as pie.
So here is tip for illustrators, want work but don't have art directors beating down your door just yet? Create your own! If you aren't up for writing a book, kids magazines are always looking for illustrated puzzles & games.
