This information is so very helpful. I just went to my first conference and my portfolio was so "not ready" for prime time.  Thank you for this information!!!

Since this thread got bumped up, I thought I'd add a post I wrote for illustrators about what to draw for your portfolio. Because before you put together a portfolio, you have to figure out what to draw for the portfolio (not as easy as it should be to figure out)!

ten tips to help you choose what to draw and ten ways to find inspiration

Juana Martinez Neal's thought to have your peers help you pare down your portfolio to it's strongest pieces- what a great idea!
