I've been working on a rough layout for my future portfolio. I decided to make a small landscape book to see the possibilities of the layout, and to help me decide which pieces to include. For the finished portfolio, I'd like to make the binding from wood, and possibly wood-burn a design into the cover. I've gotten some great feedback on it so far, and subsequently have many ideas on how to improve it. I also might create some mini-bound books, much like this first draft, to use as leave-behinds or self-promo pieces. What do you think?
I'm an illustrator with an affinity for octopi. I love using watercolor and ink, and really enjoy working with the book form. View some of my story books, coloring books, and critter illustrations in my shop. Also, visit my Facebook page.
