Portfolio Advice - Day 3
Curate. Always show your best work.
So what is your best work, anyway? YOU already know this. The odds are, whatever that work is that you are most passionate about is your best work. When in doubt, trust your instincts. If you love a piece – submit it!
Your portfolio may consist of work in any medium and the content may be a variety of subject matter. Of course, drawing from observation and other demonstrations of technical skill are important, but remember that technique and expression are not necessarily mutually exclusive. If you can, show us a range of work that highlights your abilities. But – don’t show us a variety just for variety’s sake. Make sure that you are proud of every piece that you submit.
