New Illustration Critique Group - Online

  Hi illustrators. Some fellow Florida SCBWI members and I have recently set up an illustrator critique group via Facebook. This group is meant to serve as a place specifically for illustrators to post work and receive feedback - as well as to offer your own critique and knowledge with others. Illustrating is a tedious craft, and always helps to have other artists eyes on it!
  Along with posting work for critique, we offer bi-weekly exercises to help keep us active and creating new work. All posts and critiques take place in our Facebook group. Making it convenient and accessible to SCBWI members across the country.
 This group is moderated by three SCBWI members and is a closed group for your privacy (only group members will be able to see each others posts). Although we warmly welcome new members, we do ask that you are dedicated to children's books and keep on topic. We also maintain a somewhat firm skill level before we accept new members. We also ask for a sample or link to your portfolio. This way we can all be on a rather similar skill level and we all can benefit from posts.

 We would love to have you, and become a group to further help us as illustrators develop our craft! For any questions feel free to contact me, and check out our page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/207078576159842/

I've been looking for a group like this to join! Looking through some of the artwork on the members' profiles were so fun and inspiring. I sent a request to join -- is there a way to message them my portfolio page per their request?

It is a wonderful group, Breezy. A few illustrators started it after one of our SCBWI FL conferences, then decided to allow dedicated illustrators from other regions as well. Here's a link to more info about the group on the SCBWI FL Critique Group page: https://florida.scbwi.org//?page_id=677

Here's a link to the info on the SCBWI FL site--you can click on any of the three group leader names in the contact info area to send a link to your portfolio.

Hi! 
I'm a bit of a newbie to SCBWI, but I requested to this group on FB! I've been feeling recently that I could really use a community of other illustrators around to help me push myself as well as being able to offer support for other illustrators too!

So emailing the FL admins with a portfolio is the way to go, Mindy?  I'm definitely not in FL...is that okay? :o
