Assorted Things and Stuff
The top image is copied from a Push Pin Graphic anthology of early magazine content. This cover was from an issue which revolved around the concept of Crime. The cover/ interior combo was interesting due to the simplicity of the second image in sequence to the first image. The first is colored with bold reds and oranges and guns and knives frame the face of the smoking man. The second has several bullet holes piercing the still smoking silohet of the man. It seems to reference shooting range targets and is a great illustration of such criminal action.

Looking at her portfolio of work at the above link, I am struck by something other than the work, which influences my perception of the work. It is not showcased in the most interesting manner, nor is there any other available information on each piece. I find when browsing a creative professional's webpage I want to know more about how each piece came to be. If I were looking to hire someone I want to know who they've worked with in the past, and how much experience they have had with other clients. This would give me a better idea of what to expect from working with them. With my website I want to present as much information as possible to promote my work, experience, and anything else with might influence a client to hire me.
