Art Portfolio and Professional Advice now available to everyone :- )

August 19, 2019

Have a job interview and not sure how to approach a contract? Insecure about asking to be paid for your time? Have questions about what to include in your portfolio?


We cover a lot of these questions in the Scientific Illustration Distance Program. What if you're not enrolled and have exhausted your social networks? Read on. (Yes, I am charging for my time because "do as I say and not as I do"  is time-consuming with hundreds of wonderful former students and I can't help you earn a living if I don't value my own time.)


Private Sessions and Consultations


One may schedule private sessions, critiques, or consultations in order to:

  • complete outstanding work

  • prepare for a portfolio review

  • prepare for a job application

  • have a critique of your artwork


Private sessions or consultations may include:

  • a Skype meeting

  • emails

  • sending/receiving artwork to be reviewed

  • job application or contract review


The fee for a private session is $100/hour, billed in 30 minute increments.


You may schedule any number of private sessions in advance; there is no minimum or maximum number of sessions, and you may schedule them on an as-need basis.


Note: This is not the same as, nor does it include, private 10-week sessions.

(Example: taking Sessions I, II, or III as a single student)


Fees Waived

Business advice and artwork critiques are given to all students currently enrolled in any Session as part of the course (ie no fee). SIDP graduates receive two advice sessions the year they graduate, free of charge.  If in doubt of your status, or any fees, contact me. or
