Portfolio by Altalamatox Portfolio by Altalamatox
Heeey, I don't know if this is A Thing Which Is Done, but damned if I didn't blarf a lot of time into arranging this thing, so I'm gonna share it.

These are the pages from my portfolio. We've seen a chunk of these things on dA, I'll scatter links to those below for the interested. Mostly there's some concept stuff in here I don't think we've seen.

In my limited experience sharing my work, for people planning to put together a portfolio, I'd considering including a slice of the sketch work and ideation behind pieces, if you've kept some around. It was one of the most frequent things professional art people said to me, how stoked they were to get to peek behind the scenes and into the guts of the machine. As it were.

Yes. I did do little BrainSpews for my opening and closing spreads. People got a kick out of them. (:

I'm in love with you ^^

Shh, don't tell my Significant Other...!

I can literally spend hours looking at these... your art always inspires me to do better with my illustration and logos. I love logo work, though I'm not very good at it, I wish one day to become as good as you. I was comissioned earlier to do a logo for the Cleveland Criminal Justice Institute, and they bought my logo, and that's a HUGE step towards things as I've never really taken any art classes, but want to be professional, maybe not in selling work specifically, but maybe being an art teacher.

Thanks for sharing your work, your "Myth" design is fantastic, I would buy the (wine?) with that bottle~!

I had no idea you did graphic design too! Gah! This makes me so happy! I'm going to school for graphic design, and I always get a lot of flack that "you can't use illustrations in a typographic field", but you've proved them all wrong C:

Thanks for all the inspirational thoughts C:

Amazing work. One of the most visually interesting parts of those pictures are the vodka bottles, especially the evolution of the font you used. I think the sea serpent you used on the green tea vodka bottle is really cool: way the background colors contrast with the small ship silhouette.

This is amazing! I'm very curious to know how you stop your sketchwork from smudging terribly, though.

Thank you! I work with .5 mechanical pencil on printer paper, I personally find it the easiest lead/paper to keep from smearing, and it scans so much nicer than all other drawing papers I've tried.

Oh, thanks! I think my problem is probably that I let the sketches hang around in my sketchbooks for long enough that they smudge.

Mmm! I really love that commission piece, it is one of my favorites. I still try to find all the hidden things in it when I am bored.

That Myth drink design is grand!

Pretty much everything up there is awesome.

:) Congrats on getting job offers and a job!!

These are awesome. And now I want a bottle of the whatever-it-is you're putting in those bottles. I get a vodka feel from them, but I could also dig an awesome sort of voodoo health tea too.

Yep, vodka indeed! But mocked up IRL with water. Because that's a lotta booze.

Aaan' here Becky comes, creepin' out of the shadows like some sort of.. creeper.

Your work has always been something to be admired, but when you put everything into a portfolio like this, it's almost overwhelming how fantastic your talent and skill can be. I suppose that's the purpose of portfolios, but in the long run, I hope you realize just how much of an impact this is. It's one thing to go through your gallery.. its another to see some of your best work in one place.

Keep up the fantastic job!

...and I hope you've been doing well. :heart:
