My 2016 Portfolio

I attended #PWID this past weekend and had my portfolio reviewed by Giuseppe Castellano of Penguin Random House. It is MY FIRST ALL DIGITAL portfolio. Here are the images I submitted. Giuseppe's suggestions were to push the collage aspects of my work. To keep experimenting, try new things, avoid cliches, and to follow my muse. Guiseppe asked everyone what media they liked best. Many people answered with a media that they didn't actually use in their portfolio. I answered that I thought of myself as a generalist, I like to dabble in many media. SO guess what.....I'm going to play around with mixed media for a few months. Sounds like a winner to me. Heading out to photograph stuff for my library. Later Taters!

This was the image I made the most mistakes on. 1. Too digitized. I enlarged it for the portfolio and it was choppy on the curves. My drawing was not as specific as it should have been, especially on the van, grill, lines, etc. It was hard to tell what was really going on. (Plan to redo!)

Suggestion here was to replace lettering with icon on the sign for non-English readers.

Suggestion here was to pay more attention to lines on skirt. Make them flow with folds, etc.

Suggestion here was to watch the quality of images I use. Here the body is blurry. And avoid cliche eyes!

Giuseppie liked this image and the use of painted paper.
