My Online Portfolio

A lot of editing and refining happened. It took a while but I got there. This is the link: myasubong.wix.com/portfolio.

It's meant to be for potential work placements; places that I apply to can look at this and see my work and I can build up on it for the rest of my university life so that there's a decent body of work to go through by the time I graduate. Hopefully, by then, the whole website itself looks a lot more sleek and professional since I'll have more time to work on it.

It's still not finished by the way. I have more things to add (like one more project - Magpie) so it is still very much a work in progress.

Any feedback on anything - layout, images, fonts, typos - would be useful!

That's all for now. Stay beautiful x

My Portfolio Progress

It's almost the end of my first year at university and I am currently working on a portfolio to send off for work experience placements. It'll be online soon, hopefully by the end of the month since that is my deadline for this mini portfolio project before I go off for my summer holiday.

I've definitely progressed compared to the start of the school year. My drawing has improved and so has my ability to be patient with drawing on a screen with a touchpad...At first I didn't have a mouse and then I bought a mouse and then I forgot my mouse at home for a bit...Hectic life I live, really.

Anyway, this year pretty much sped past like a blur and it sucks that I wasn't able to blog as much as I could. My laptop was also broken for three months so there was that issue too.

The photo above is just one page of my portfolio which, hopefully when it's done, looks better than what it is now. Not kidding. It isn't impressive. Still working on it. Once it's up, I'll be sure to link it here somewhere and share what I've spent nine months of my life doing.

If I had the time, I would have made a spectacular pie chart on my university expectations and the reality but, since I don't, I'll just have to make do with sharing the percentages.

University Expectations:

    • Lectures                     25% of my time
    • Studio sessions          30% of my time
    • Study time                 20% of my time
    • Free time                   10% of my time
    • Sleep                          15% of my time

University Reality:
    • Lectures                      5% of my time
    • Studio sessions         25% of my time
    • Study time                45% of my time
    • Free time                  10% of my time
    • Sleep                           5% of my time
Sleep, like for most university students, isn't a high priority. Sounds awful. It is. Don't be me.

That's all for now. Stay beautiful x
