Hey y’all! Party time in four more days! Are you coming? Check the poll box on the top of the left column.
I pre-ordered my copy and it arrived two days ago. I’m in love with Bringing Nature Home by Ngoc Minh Ngo. It is simply stunning. It is more rare to have the photographer be the author of the book and it is such a bonus because that means more beautiful photographs. Your coffee table needs this book. To read my interview with Ngoc, click here.
My most dreaded two (sometimes three) weeks of the year is printing new portfolios. It’s my own fault, really, because I don’t trust someone else to do it. The first week is spent editing through new images and creating a new book, retouching final images and then dusting off the printer.
Now I’m sitting in a Mickey t-shirt and floral pajamas, locked into my office (have a sitter for Evie) and am not coming out until at least half of it is done.
There are so many variables where putting together a portfolio can go wrong. How about last year where the guy who scored/trimmed/punched my perfectly printed pages did it on the wrong side?
Anyway, I’m hoping this will be the last time I have to print. Isn’t there that thing called digital? I know my iPad is serving as a digital portfolio in some art buyer’s room right now. Let’s go to that, please.
However, these two new portfolios (and new promo!) are going to be awesome and I can’t wait to take it to meet future clients.

I’m so excited to be hosting another party! And at Alice Lane again! Last year was so much fun and this year will be even better with lots of treats, more teachers, more classes to demo, a new website and a showcase of student work! Oh…. and did I mention our textbooks are only $20 at this event?
If you have taken a NC that has helped you in your field and would like your work (photo, illustration, photoshop, shop, you name it) displayed at our party, please submit to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mark your calendars -we hope to see you there!
