    Hi Matt,
    Could you please, in the next podcast, give us all we should know about building a good portfolio? (size of drawings, variety of subjet, how do not make dirty the paper around the subject, etc)

    Many thanks!

    Hi Lise,

    You just missed this week’s podcast. I need more specifics from you. Portfolio for what? A portfolio for illustration book covers. I portfolio for a landscape gallery show.

    You see there could be dozens of different types of portfolios depending on your end game? What is your end game? Show in a gallery, do art for magazine articles? Let me know a little bit more.

    Hi Matt,

    I heard you sometimes suggess us to work on a personnal portfolio. It is a great idea and I decided to do that. Maybe one day I will think about an exhibition of my portraits drawings. In that meaning perhaps there are some rules to take care in order to be interesting. For example, do I show only graphite portraits or can I include also portraits with coloring pencils? Things like that…Do you see?
    In fact, I need some advices to begin my portfolio.

    Many thanks

    Hi Lise,

    For something like this, it’s best to have a theme for gallery shows. Perhaps the theme could be a bunch of drawings completed in colored pencils that revolve around ‘dark dreams’. It’s better to have separate sections of the gallery for separate style say black and white versus color.

    I will expand on this in the podcast on Monday night.

    Matt
