Learn what goes into a portfolio, and who you should cater it to.
- [Patrick] There are some artists who are fortunate enough…to get hired right out of school…or get the first job they apply for.…Yeah, none of that happened to me.…But I'm actually pretty grateful it didn't.…As an artist, you are constantly putting your work out there…via portfolio submissions, entering contests,…and now social media.…You will have some hits,…but you're going to find yourself with a lot of misses.…When I first started out,…I would constantly go to portfolio reviews,…workshops, and interviews trying to get my foot in the door.…
I did this for a couple of years,…constantly revamping my portfolio,…talking to artists in the industry,…and taking classes to better my skills.…It wasn't just about giving up,…but being proactive with my career.…Yes, getting a good body of work together…is of utmost importance,…but doing things to get your work seen by others is key.…This means networking and building relationships…not with just people you would want to work for,…but with artists you would want to work with.…
