Just rearranged the illustrations in my portfolio. I realised that if my two main selling points were 'historical' and 'educational' it might be a good idea if the first pictures in my portfolio actually fitted this category.
I know that my illustration is very average (should I be saying that in public?) compared to others. Where my real strength lies is in my historical knowledge, attention to detail etc. I know I'm good at this, and I need to play to my strengths.
