Portfolio in Progress

Portfolio in Progress - student project

Hello! This is Sarah. I'm currently a full time teacher at FullSail University. I'm also an animator and illustrator. 

Recently I've started doing illustration freelance as a side-hustle and hope to do some animation work as well. I love the variety of projects I get to work on, but keeping up with the self promotion/social media side of things can be a challenge.

My portfolio is at sarahdebaar.com. I'm currently in the process of uploading/relocating my work there, so it's a little bare at the moment. I recently decided to use ArtStation to help me manage my portfolio, since that's where most of the people I know in the industry are posting their work and it has the image and video support I need to display my work. They've also recently added a marketplace so I'll be able to sell prints, tutorials, and other things once I get to that point.

In the past I had coded my portfolio website myself, but it became a lot to keep up with. A friend of mine passed on some good advise. "Focus on what you want to do. You don't have to do everything." I realized that I was holding myself back because I was trying to do it all myself instead of just focusing on the work I want to do.
