Here is my very first portfolio - the 30 lb 'jumbo boy'. It was gigantic and filled with astounding work! Art directors loved it. They ate it up like cake.
Each new portfolio I made got smaller and smaller until now they fit on an iPhone. But there's something to be said for the 'Jumbo Boy'. Art directors had to clear their desk just to look at it.
I think the amazing thing is that I drew those in ink straight onto the newsprint page without any pencil or rough sketch. I loved how the fountain pen ink sank into the newsprint.
