A Portfolio’s Worth


Their immaturity: that’s why I had overruled including the case’s contents earlier. Starting in high school, the stash of old drawings had dates reaching into my college years. A few printouts of other pieces were tucked among the aging pages. With the obvious student exercises omitted, what examples remained were still largely goofier than I cared to share. Surprisingly, however, thirty-three (once I had lowered my standards a little) were good enough for the website. Many foreshadow my later forays into book illustration.



The portfolio also contained a tattered lithograph on which I had based a less goofy than grandiose painting.
