Once you are set up you will be able to make all the postings yourself. 

What to post

Artwork, sketches, latest releases, inspirations, and anything else pictorial that relates to children's illustration work. Although you may have lovely work in other areas, this blog is for your children's illustration work only.

Remember this is a publicly viewable blog which is actively promoted to publishers and other media, so don't post anything you're not happy for the world to see, and be sure you have permission from your clients to post pre-publication work. 

Everyone of course is encouraged to comment on posts!

Want some feedback on those illustrations not quite ready for primetime? The Midsouth also has a private blog specifically for critiquing work, hosted by Alison Lyne. Email her for an invitation to join at:


If you use Photoshop, save jpegs as save-to-web. 72dpi, maximum 800 pixels tall or wide. On the blog set images to 'Medium' or 'Large', avoid 'Extra-Large' as it can affect the display on some browsers.
