not to complicate things, but i've decided to start a photo web log* on Blogspot.com.
chris is currently working on a real website where i'll have my full photo portfolio, fashion sketching portfolio, graphic design, and maybe art direction sketching. and i'll finally feel like a real boy (if i wasn't already a girl).
thus, for now, i've decided to host my newly re-edited photo portfolio on a, shall we say, more neutral, site. honestly, nothing against this site, i just need somewhere a little different to direct prospective employers. recently, i've had to direct two prospective interviewers to my gallery on deviant art and i never heard from them again. for all i know, it may have had shit to do with the site itself, but if i'm trying to compete with the myriad of other pro's here in NYC (with their big bad PR reps, websites, studios, equipment), i can see how this might not be the best forum to display i'm up for it.
however, i will continue to hold this deviant art account to see all of your work; all of you who i cannot easily visit every day in person. it's really great to still feel connected to people i care about and see how their work evolves even if we have to be apart.
if anybody wants to be among the first to know when my website is done, let me know your email address and i'll add you to my list (don't worry, the "good list"). i will have chris connect my web log to my website so it'll be easy keep tabs.
and for now, the interstitial time, here's a link to my web log thing:juliebthompson.blogspot.com/
i have a lot of re-edited projects so i'll have all of them on blogspot by 2/18/09.
i have a lot of never-before-seen images in their midst, so keep an eye out.
no love lost, right? remember to give me your email, and - good night and good luck.
* i just recently discovered that the somewhat lame term "blog" is derived from the phrase "web log."
