So yeh, beginning to put a portfolio together is the hardest part of making a portfolio, because you're not sure what exactly you're meant to put into it. So far, it seems what I have ended up putting in there is good enough, but I've still got two interviews to go, and one of them is at one of my current top two preference wise.

Put your BRAIN in the portfolio. That's where everything comes from.

Put in the pieces of work which you are most pleased with, and the ones which those who are close to you think reflect your full potential.

In art last year they told us a few things about portfolios. start with your favourite piece, something colourful or an outstanding achievement that will wow them, then put all the stuff in the middle like projects and your comics n things, then at the end put something you're really really proud of, because they're more likely to remember that because it's the last thing they saw.

and the basic points like keeping it all organised and facing the same way, so they don't have to turn the book to keep the flow going as they go through the portfolio. any big pieces of work need borders or space around the edges blah blah blah, they like tidy stuff. also, i would say it's good to have a book or something extra tucked in that they can flip through but no doubt you have plenty of comic work for that anyways :)

as for what you actually put in the portfolio... that's up to you :P
