Sketchbooks in my eyes are the jewels in the portfolio. They give a glimpse into who you are, how you see the world and they provide information about your thinking and creative processes. They’re not presentation books of great work, they will have ‘bad’ pages and things in it that don’t work out. But this is the purpose, to show your experimentation and risk taking – 2 important characteristics of a creative individual.
We recommend that you buy this with the eBook ‘Creating a sensational portfolio’ to ensure that you are exploring your full potential.
This 34 page eCourse is based on the successful face to face course that we have run for many years.
“One of the most useful things I learnt from Portfolio Oomph was in terms of developing sketchbooks and really learning how to work in a sketchbook.
Having someone to really just talk through my ideas with. Because sometimes I would become confused and a bit lost on my project.
Having that guidance and support from someone who knows about the process and who knows how hard it is to get into art college was key” – Ellie Thomson (fashion student, ECA)
