I NEED TO READ THIS ARTICLE. I also need to find a way to have the title “fairy tale expert.”
For a article in Dension magazine about Fairy Tales and the changing nature of how these stories are told — from Grimm’s tales, to the super-scrubbed happy Disney tales through to the darker popularity of shows like Breaking Bad now. Fairy tale expert Maria Tatar also discusses how some of the world’s oldest tales help us navigate modern life.
Big thanks to Erin from Em Dash for this very interesting project!

Reblogging for some good general advice. Good whether you’re still in college, just graduated or trying to pull into illustration from another career.
This is basically everything they taught us in art school. If you want to work in more than one area of illustration ( like children’s book and editorial for example) you have to make two separate portfolios. Companies will hire you if they see you can do specifically what they want.
Also, to build a client list try agency access. A little pricey but it’s a start!
