New Stylefile, big, long, wide, beautiful!

My ASA stylefile has been renewed. I added new four images! A new portfolio has become modern and looks very nice. A successful applicant may upload maximum 8 images after the panel's acknowledgement. The new Style File website features the work of 52 Australian illustrators, 23 of which have never before been seen on Style File.
Here's my 8 images. Which image do you like? In Stylefile, you can search by names, genres/styles/subjects, intended audience, media/technique to meet your project needs. 

Other wonderful features :
  • An image rotation of each illustrator and illustrator's gallery on the homepage. 
  • A featured illlustator speciality, browse by genres and styles. 
  • A featured illustrator rotation on the homepage.  
  • A "my favorites" function helps publishers and users keep track of portfolios. 
A new outstanding feature of Stylefile ; an illustrator can show publication's information together : a front cover, publisher, author, Intended audience, techniques, subjects. I posted the detailed information about "Moon."

Yes, my information above is categorised and you can search for the best illustrator who will match your project! 
"Moon" Front Cover 
Now, my other images are below. Although some images are already familiar to you, I hope you will enjoy them all. 

I played with colours, focusing on a child's face expression in this illustration.
Daily sketches gave my imagination "reality" or supportive and concrete evidence. It's fun to produce an image standing between imagination and reality.
I've demonstrated portrait ability, too. This was a commissioned work.  

The Stylefile is famous for its high quality, indeed, the best of best Australian illustrators showcase. The Stylefile is the hot meeting spot for publishers and illustrators. Publishers "buy" illustrators from the Stylefile. Many illustrators have got projects through the Stylefile. 
Friends, it's a good idea to try Stylefile and begin an illustrator career. Here's the information of Application. ASA kindly assists you how to do it. It is very difficult to crack into market for emerging illustrators and artists. Yet, always publishers look for good illustrators who will meet their need. I hope all of us will fly into a bright future like a big pelican following a dream.  
Friends, Happy Painting and Illustrating!
