Recently I have updated my website as it was bugging me. It did not feel quite right. I am happy with my new changes, but I am anxious to continue to work on it. I get lots of ideas from browsing around other sites. There are a slew of creative people out there, it is very inspiring!
I've recently discovered a forum on the Illustration Friday website that lists lots of portfolio sites and their cost (though some are outdated). I have been going down this list and signing up for the free ones that seem worthwile... I guess you never know. I am anxious to see if I get anything from them, but plan to invest in a more beneficial one such as childrensillustrators.com.
