Creating an Award Winning Portfolio - Part 6: Improve Your Odds

Join a critique group or start one!

Sketch daily
Keep a sketchbook where you take daily breaks - instead of eating a snack or chatting about the office gossip, doodle for 15 minutes.

Sketch for 10 minutes at the end of lunch.

Keep a sketchbook in your bag - sketch while you wait for appointments or waiting for children to finish activities.

Sketch during the commercials of your favorite TV programs.

Have kids? Pull out paper for them and tell them it's drawing time and draw together for 10-15 minutes.

Take classes
Check out local art centers & community colleges for affordable classes on techniques.
Attend SCBWI workshops and conferences.

Participate in online challenges
