For National Portfolio Day I wanted to make something unique, for future students and for myself. When I decided to come to art school I made a conscious decision to do what I enjoyed for a living. Not because it was easy, and not for the money, but because it was challenging, time consuming, and exactly how I wanted to be spending my time. I came to school to draw for a living, and since then I have stopped drawing. That’s why I wanted this piece to be so heavily illustrative. I wanted to express the reason why I first came to portfolio day, in hopes of making a connection with a student who might feel the same.
