It feels good to know I can already scratch off one of my goals for 2017. I finally took the time to update my portfolio. Last year I learned how much I love digital illustration and really tried to explore my style. I still have a way to go but I also have some work I'm proud of, and I wanted to add them among my other projects. Below is a breakdown of the updates:
While my personal look doesn't change much over the years I wanted an updated photo that represents where I'm at now. I added in various icons I've built to create a wall paper effect. This I feel makes a greater first statement. "This is who I am and here is what I like to do."
I added 4 new projects to my site. The top row are all examples of my illustration work. I retired a project that I had worked on a couple of years ago and replaced it with the "Horton Memorial." It was awesome to be a part of that project and I wanted to include it as a unique example that shows I'm open to tackling projects that are more "out of the box."
I wanted to update the parallax images for each section. Again, I wanted to really show my illustration and icon passion. I added the self-portrait I created awhile back for the about me section. It's a great way to share that I like to have fun as much as I'm serious about my design work. I also updated the copy so that it accurately reflects who I am today. Below are the updated blog and contact graphics.
I can now have some piece of mind knowing that my portfolio is where I wanted it. You can see a bit of my personality and my work and I know that it shows where I am today and what I'm passionate about. I know it will always be a labor of love because my skills will constantly be growing and possibly changing. That is however something I don't mind and why I think I'm working in the field I was meant for. I can't wait to see what new projects come my way.
