Lets admit it, sometimes keeping things flowing smoothly is not always easy when you are a freelance illustrator. Everything seems to come in waves, from finances and work to inspiration and technical improvement. But I think that is why having a website or portfolio is important for all artists, working or not. A collection of our favorite,best or even just recent work can help us see, in a quick glance, where we came from, where we are and what direction we are heading in our practice. When we take the opportunity to look over our work we have a deep connection that reminds us of the challenges and successes of each piece. This bit of information is something that not many other professions have at their finger tips, and as creative individuals we need to utilize it to make ourselves better at what we do. The portfolio is more then a tool to get work or build interest, it is the base from which you can build. So no matter where you are in your field, always look at what you have done and reflect. In this way you will always been growing the way you want, which opens the door for the most joy and the most fluid opportunity for your individuality as an artist.
