Lottery Portfolio Reviews with Maria Modugno (Art Director) and Nicole De Las Heras (Editorial Director, Picture Books)

Random House Children's Books' team Maria Modugno and Nicole De Las Heras will spend the evening reviewing illustrator portfolios (chosen by lottery) in real-time. Portfolios will be drawn at random from the pool of attendees. Please bring physical portfolios (not digital) and two promotional pieces. Portfolios should contain 10-12 images. All attendees will be able to leave one promotional piece for each speaker at the end of the talk.

Nicole de las Heras loves pairing the right artist with the right manuscript and collaborating with artist and editor. She has lots of opportunities to do this as an Art Director at Random House Children’s Books, where she oversees board books, picture books, leveled readers, and early chapter books. Emily Winfield Martin, LeUyen Pham, Brigette Barrager, Josie Portillo, Ruth Sanderson, and Mike Boldt are among the artists she has worked with. Another thing she loves about her job is finding new talent, and she is looking forward to doing that this evening.
