Steve says being a talented illustrator is only half the battle. It's really important to show art directors and editors that you understand picture books.
Common mistake: Illustrators don't tailor their portfolios to the children's book market. Don't make art directors make the leap--show them evidence.
More advice: every illustrator should have a web presence that reflects them and their work. He spends at least two or three hours a week viewing illustrators' websites.
