Three of Many

I say three of many because there are a lot of duds that don't make the cut. If anyone out there is building a portfolio the best way to do it is to work hard and Draw! Draw! Draw!

This is the motto of my class!

Rather than drawing specifically for a portfolio and have no discerning choices at hand. One should draw becuase they love it and pick the best drawings from that stack.

Give yourself choices.

Hi, Dave. Thanks for the drawings and the advice. I recognize your name from the Walt Stanchfield handouts. You may be interested in the book I edited based on those handouts. Your comments would be most welcome!
