Featured Illustrator

Featured Illustrator: Matthew Rivera



In order to be chosen as a Featured Illustrator, you must have an up-to-date Illustrator Gallery on the SCBWI site with at least twelve images. Also, you can greatly increase your chances of being chosen if you have at least one image in your gallery that will fit easily into the SCBWI homepage spot. The dimensions are 940 pixels across and 550 pixels high. Make sure the main character or action is not in the top left portion of the image, otherwise it will get cut off by the diagonal graphic element. To increase your chances of being chosen, participate in other SCBWI contests and awards for illustrators.
