jadiejadie asked: Hi Gail. I just read your Brutal Tips on Breaking in, and you mentioned not including fanfic in your writing portfolio. Is this also something to keep in mind for artists, or does having fanart in one's portfolio make any difference?
It’s different for artists, they want to see how you can handle their characters. I know, it seems unfair, but it takes them ten seconds to look at a drawing, it can take an age to read a pitch.
