Illustrator Gets Manicure, Shows Off New Thumbnails

April 17, 2018

Did I really get a manicure? Well, no.

Do I need one? Um, probably… my cuticles aren’t as cute as they should be. 😊

But I do have new thumbnails. Portfolio thumbnails, that it is. You can see them over in the sidebar.

They’re not all new– just the ones in the top 4 brackets. Here’s a screenshot:blank vertical space, 16 pixels highMark Armstrong Illustration WordPress blog updated new portfolio thumbnails table grid in sidebar

I added 45 “new” pieces. I was so far behind, I had to stick the last 15 in the “fridge.”

I’m embarrassed, and that’s no joke. Keeping one’s portfolio up to date should be a top priority for any artist.

Anyway, do take a look. Just click on any thumbnail (in the sidebar, not the screenshot)
to see the corresponding illustration.

Now I’m off to get that manicure… 🙌😊

    ::meep:: This one hit soooooooo close to home! You’re always an inspiration! Time to fix my other account’s portfolio. Past time, actually. Do you have room in your freezer for some of my stuff? Haaaa!
    Seriously, tho, great post & a brilliant way to display your work! 👏👏👏

      ::meep, meep, meep:: Those were my left-over-from-Easter Marshmallow Peeps talking. Somewhere along the line they seem to have picked up a second language… 🐤🐤🐤😮

      I’m afraid to click on some of the stuff in the Freezer. I’m afraid I might see ice pixels– the digital equivalent of freezer burn!! ❄️❄️🎨❄️❄️😬

      Thanks as always for your good-humored support!! 😊

    The title of this post made me giggle. You could say it really cu-tickled me! 😆

    Gotta say, I’ve always loved how you label each group of thumbnails – hot off the press, still warm, cooled down, etc… always found that very clever 😊😋

      Cu-tickled! My funny bone just gave that a thumbs-up. Which surprised me: I had no idea funny bones had thumbs… 👍😮

      Hi, Lily! I think I only had 4 thumbnail categories when I started out. I keep adding new ones to accommodate the oldies. Just tacked on “From The Crypt” this time around. Hmm. It doesn’t exactly inspire confidence… 😕 Great to see you, thanks for stopping by!! 😊

A penny for your thoughts. I'm on a tight budget here.
