How to Critique Your Own Work: The 10-Minute Portfolio Review | The Professional Creative with Bonnie Christine

Self-critiquing your work is important to evaluate your artwork objectively, identify areas that need improvement, and refine your skills as an artist before seeking feedback from others—but how do you begin? In this episode of the Professional Creative Podcast, I’m sharing 12 tips that can help you evaluate your work and improve your skills as an artist. By following these tips, you can learn to evaluate your work critically and create pieces that you're proud to share with the world.

Sometimes I'm just so close to my work that I can't see things that other people see almost right away.

You can download the tips as a free printable guide below to reference as you review your work!

Review of the week:


So much valuable information

I’ve been a small biz owner and professional creative for many years tho still relatively new at surface design. I learned about Bonnie through my journey of trying to crack the vector/ Illustrator code and found I am learning much more than that from her. She very generously shares a lot of great info and tips and guides in her podcasts. I appreciate and applaud her philosophy around community over competition. Thank you!
