Ah, the online portfolio. Like Batman with his cape and cowl or Cap and his vibranium enhanced shield, an online portfolio goes hand in hand with the digital artist. It’s sorta like their personal little cave where they can showcase their talents and where there power animal resides..slide.
WHAT CHALLENGES DID YOU FACE?
I am Jack’s cold sweat. So your buddy comes to you with a problem. Do you, A) tell him, “Eh, well that’s too bad. Hey! What else is on?” Or, B) do you tell him, “Hey I have a problem too! Turns out I need artwork for my portfolio. How bout’ we team up and together we can resolve each other’s problem?” Together, we came up with the Fight Club motif. We both loved the movie and we both felt like it was a great way to personalize Jonathan’s little corner of the interwebs. Also creating and designing custom rollovers for each project was a pain but a great lesson in planning ahead.
WHAT DID YOU LEARN FROM THIS PROJECT?
I learned that by helping my friend solve his problem, he was eternally indebted to me (FOR-EV-ER, FOR-EV-ER, FOR-EV-ER) but also that I could put my art out there for other colleagues and showcase my skills.
