I found out about it only a very few days ago, and with my portfolio in a rather dissheveled state, I had some hot work to do. And that's not all: my current budget for personal promotional printing is, essentially, zero.
No, actually, it is zero.
Anyway, I came up with a solution. I gathered some graphics and fired up Dreamweaver CS3, and made a portable website (a webfolio) containing samples, commentary, and even a mailto: link to contact me at.
And it's all on a little CD-ROM called Sam Klein on a Disk.
I am still looking for work in the design world, for what it's worth, and if you want, you can email me here if you're looking for someone who's pretty handy with CS2, CS3, and QuarkXPress, and I can send you a fast copy of the desk (or a .dmg or .zip of it).
I'm quite proud of it. Even if I don't have much of a chance at Dark Horse, I'm feeling good about my little portable site. If I can find a place to host it on line, I'm doing that.
Wish me luck, people.
