I always felt that since I could create my own website code, I should. If I took the easy way out and used an online site creator (even wordpress.com!) was selling out–being lazy. But I’ve given in and recognized that procrastination is so ingrained in my personality that I’d never get anything online at all unless I used the available tools.
So in addition to my online stores, I now have an online portfolio: http://www.behance.net/dirkthedog
It’s a website built for artists just to display their artwork. It also has the advantage of being a social network for artists. Members can connect to others who work on the same type of projects or for the same type of clients to or who share other interests to comment, critique, encourage, and share their experiences and ideas.
My initial portfolio is just some graphic design work I created in school, but it’s so easy, I’m sure I’ll post much more soon.
