I’ve been doing this a long time, and I think I am pretty damn good at what I do. I never
think I am so good that there is nothing left to learn. I am always looking for opportunities to take classes or have
my portfolio reviewed by other people in the industry. Having your work looked at and critiqued is one of the best ways to
improve your vision. When I say having your work looked at I am not talking about showing it to your friends or mom and dad.
Having your friends sing the praises of your work can be fun, and its certainly an ego boost, but does it help you grow? I
take advantage of every chance I get to have my work looked at. Sometimes it goes well, sometimes its brutal, but its always
beneficial. Well, almost always. The worst portfolio review I’ve ever had, was one most people would think was the best.
I sat down at an unnamed school and spent my entire time hearing how great my work was and answering the reviewers questions
on how I managed to get the look I got. I know I’m good, thats why I do this, but I was looking for insight on how to
get better! Approach every review with an open mind, you may not agree with everything the reviewer says, but think of why
they are saying what they are. Always keep learning and growing!!!
