I enjoyed this presentation. Richard has done something I have tried to do with limited success. I get bogged down in all the tangential stuff and start to doubt what I’m trying to do.

I liked it as well, but spaced the time and tuned in to the recording rather than live. Doh! Can I blame Covid? Anyway, if Richard pops in, I’d like to know if he finds that portfolios present themselves as a body of work after the fact or if it’s something he deliberately creates from day one? I would imagine it’s a little of both, but I have a really hard time thinking about and organizing my work in this way. Other than subject matter or a specific project which usually revolves around a particular subject, my work just doesn’t seem flexible enough to encompass something like this. I suppose I need to step back from it.

I missed this somehow but I can’t wait to watch it as it is a topic I’m very interested in!

Loved thinking about the big overarching themes in my catalog and how I could link them together to show my complete body of work over time.
