Two weekends ago, I went through my boxes and boxes of samples and chose some things to photograph for my portfolio. This past weekend, I set up a little photo shoot area with a white backdrop, and photographed them. The last time I had to show my portfolio was 7 years ago. Crazy, right? My problem back then was not enough work to show, and my problem now is so much work it's hard to choose what I want to show! Here are a few of my favorites.
Cloud and raindrop print.
Toddland "Bikes" tee.
Julius ikat print. One of my favorite challenges at PF has been designing graphics for the more fashion-forward groups. Particularly, how to take an icon that (these days) is primarily thought of as something for kids, and age him up to at least a juniors level.
I really like this 80s-inspired group, and the photo turned out great, but I wonder if the print is too simple to showcase in a portfolio. Especially when I have insane hand drawn prints like this vintage-inspired paint-by-numbers board short print for Generic Youth:
It's probably a good idea to show both types of prints.
Is your portfolio current? Do you have any favorite online portfolios?
