The home of my official “Online Portfolio” is a bit of a work in progress at the moment.
The site I’m working on currently is http://jeffs.faith
(If I forget to pay my domain name fee some time down the road, the actual site is at http://jeffthomann.epizy.com/ )
The portfolio is always under construction as I’m always tweaking things to make it better. Some days I put more images in there. Others, I remove some. Some days I add more categories, others I remove them. If you like following my work, you might want to bookmark it, and/or bookmark this blog since it has links to that site.
It will take me a while to get the site fully functional since the server doesn’t allow Server Side Includes, which is a major thing that I used to rely on with my old site’s navigation menus. The new site relies on php instead. You can get the same results with php as you do with SSI, but it’s going to take me a while (weeks, months, maybe even years, depending on how in depth I make the portfolio site, to get all of the navigation stuff converted over to php).
It’s also going to take me a while to fix all of the links on the blog here leading back to the portfolio site since I plan to get the blog and portfolio site to work in conjunction with one another, where one assists the other with more details about the artwork, reason that the work was created, history of the work’s evolution, etc.
The odds are likely that in the winter months more will get done on the blog and portfolio site than in the summer months since I simply will have more time to work on it as I won’t be so focused on yard work, etc.
Artfolio vs Portfolio Blog Posts:
I plan to tag and categorize all future posts that I consider a part of my true art portfolio as “Portfolio” at some point in the future. This is different than the posts tagged or categorized as artfolio. Artfolio is reserved for all of my artworks posted in this blog, both unfinished and finished as well as works in progress, quick preliminary sketches, ideas, notes on technique, diary type art-related postings, etc. Portfolio tagged items are a subset of Artfolio tagged items which are more finished, and worthy of viewing.
A lot of artists don’t like to show the unrefined, unfinished works to the public for a variety of reasons. I like doing this so that it’s easier to see techniques being used, discuss various methods of doing things, discuss the historical rationale behind symbols and patterns being utilized, etc. That’s why I created the artfolio tag and category. The portfolio tag and category is reserved for things that I would, and may actually put in my real world art portfolio. The Artfolio stuff is more of a hodge podge mix of everything I do that’s art related.
