3-month Mentorship


3-month Mentorship


Our 3-month Mentorship with Giuseppe Castellano is designed for illustrators of all experience levels.

 Through our mentorship, the participant can:

  • Build an effective portfolio or picture book dummy—or improve upon one.

  • Produce multiple finished, portfolio-worthy illustrations.

  • Work on a picture book dummy—and get it ready for submission.

  • And much, much more.

Through our mentorship, the participant will:

  • Receive valuable insight from Giuseppe—identifying areas of strength, as well as areas that need further growth.

  • Discuss best practices in illustration.

  • Receive in-depth technical advice on your medium of choice.

  • And much, much more.

The participant will meet with Giuseppe every other week for 3 months (or 6 total sessions) through Google Hangouts—an easy-to-use web chat platform.

We will schedule the sessions at your convenience.

If you have any questions about this offering—or any of our other offerings—feel free to email Sarah at sarah@illustrationdept.com.

We hope to see you!

I took the 3-month mentorship with Giuseppe and it was some of the best money I ever spent. I started with a big pile of creative gobbledy-gook that Giuseppe saw through and was able to coach me in the right direction, based on my strengths and interests.

I now have a great picture book that will be ready for submission soon. Do yourself a favor and do this mentorship. It’s a great investment to get you on track for your future.—Jeanne W.
