If you keep waiting for the perfect time, then you'll never release...
Probably a month ago, I was switching out profile images and banners, and I forgot uploading and changing pictures on FB basically announces to the world that you did it without you knowing.
But for context, last year I commissioned a few artists to help make me an image for my soon™ to be launched portfolio. I came into revelation of how I wanted to present myself in my portfolio and what type of vibe I wanted for it. I ultimately landed upon the anime aesthetic and trying to stick to a minimal white/black theme. For those that know me, I've always been a big fan of pandas, and my license plate is named "Pandan" as a tribute to fusing the word panda with my name. I always loved animes when I was young and it was a great pastime but I never fully got to appreciate or dedicate myself to it. It's been years since I've actually watched a show (hope to change that this year)
The stories and different arcs that are told in just a single show kind of reflects how I've been treating my outlook of my own life and my journeys. Each new adventure is a new season. Every struggle and problem I face becomes a plot to solve.
Hope you enjoy the new portfolio, and the story within the episodes that I detailed for the world to see and learn from. I'll be using this initiative to get myself back on track with the blog and probably podcasts once I figure out truly what I want to do.
I also wanted to see what it was like to be a client although I tried not to be a picky one and mainly let these artists do what they do best and lo and behold, the results were great. I definitely recommend them if you're looking for something similar, or heck just browse through twitter for a whole bunch of artists that are just trying to get their hustle on.
