Hey everyone, my name is Brooke. I'm a designer and illustrator. My goal with this class is to gain more illustration work, however, I've got a pretty full plate already. I currently teach art classes and recently started working with a small agency.
For the past three years, I've updated my site every year. While I'm not totally wild about a lot of the functionality of my current site, I'm not super eager to get a new site up. I find with my portfolio sites, I spend a lot of time trying to 'perfect' it (and everything that I put up on it) and then nowhere near enough time promoting it! I'd still love to hear any feedback on it, though!
I've recently gotten into Instagram and Dribbble. And I plan to open up a Facebook account and well as clear out my old Behance account and update it with my new work.
Again, I'm already pretty busy and I want to be economical with my energy for promotion work. While I don't always have new illustration work, I do have plenty of art projects that I do with the kids I teach. What do you guys think: Is it better to keep an active profile posting work that may not be as relevant to my illustration or more carefully curate the content I publish?
