Your site and portfolio reviewed in 140 characters! :)

#illo140 portfolio reviews via Twitter… Twitter account required!

Old fashion twitter

Is it possible to review a persons work and/or site in a hundred and forty characters or less? We’re not sure, but we’re going to have fun finding out! This Thursday (12th July) at 15:00-17:00 BST we’re going to be reviewing illustrators work and sites on Twitter. How it works is simple… As soon as the clock hits 15:00 (10:00am EDT) we want you to tweet your website URL @hireanillo with the hashtag #illo140

Which means your tweet will look like this (but with your website address!)…

@hireanillo #illo140

As soon as you do that we’ll be on the ball checking out your site and sending you a reply. The reply might be a short comment, advice, praise or a confused look if you’re not an illustrator or artist. Please note all replies will be public, so if you don’t want the world to know what we think of your work don’t ask. We’re not planning on taking any prisoners! 🙂

Please make sure you’re following @hireanillo on Twitter before taking part. If you’re not we can’t DM you if needed. Also we’ll post up a list of out favorite sites when all is said and done and if you’re not following us you won’t hear about it.

The first tweet illustration is by the wonderful Otto Von Beach!
